Disney Characters as College Students

Monsters University showed us what some of our favorite Pixar characters were like in college, but have you ever wondered what other classic Disney figures would look like on campus?

Artist Rubén, known on deviantART as Hyung86, is offering his take on what they might get up to at school in a series called Disney University. Rubén has given characters like Pocahontas’ John Smith and Kocoum young, stylish redesigns that would make them look right at home on a college campus.

“I’ve always wondered how would the characters of classic animated films be if they were created today,” Rubén told the MindHut. “All would be more modern, geeks and a little hipsters…I drew Peter Pan as a little experiment and since then I haven’t been able to stop.”
