Disney has been extremely successful in taking its most beloved animated heroes and villains and turning them into live-action characters.

The live-action remakes of classic cartoons breathe new life into favorite childhood stories. Lily James proved the perfect fit for Cinderella in 2015’s re-imagining of the 1950 animated musical. And movie audiences loved seeing Emma Watson transition from book-loving Harry Potter pal Hermione to book-loving Beast-tamer Belle in the 2017 box office smash Beauty and the Beast.

For a look at how live-action Disney characters compare to their cartoon counterparts, check out how some of the biggest names in Hollywood - like Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp - have morphed into your favorite Disney icons.
