These Drawings Of Riverdale Couples Reimagined As Disney Characters Is Everything
We’re sure it’s not the first time you’ve seen a talented artist draw or paint your favorite actors and actresses as princes and princesses. However, we bet you’ve never seen your fave Riverdale couples reimagined as Disney characters, have you? Filipino artist André Manguba blessed us with a bunch of them, including #Bughead, #Varchie, #Choni, and #Falice––and guys, they’re so spot-on that some of them would be great casting ideas for Disney if the studio continues to remake all of its animated movies into live-action films. We’re just putting that out there in case…
He drew Betty Cooper and Jughead Jones, played by IRL Riverdale couple Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse, as Tangled‘s Rapunzel and Flynn Rider. He also drew up Archie Andrews and Veronica Lodge, played by K.J. Apa and Camila Mendes, as Hercules and Megara.
Then, there’s Vanessa Morgan‘s Toni Topaz and Madelaine Petsch‘s Cheryl Blossom as Moana and Ariel. And finally, last but certainly not least, our FAVE ship of them all: Skeet Urich‘s FP Jones and Mädchen Amick‘s Alice Cooper as Disney’s beloved Beauty and the Beast!
E! News asked André why he decided to draw them and his answer was simple: He’s an “avid fan of Riverdale“ and wanted to “express appreciation to the cast as well as the fans of the show.”
He added, “Aside from this, I wanted to connect and interact with my followers who also watch Riverdale. Majority of them are my age who also have the same interests as I do and as a creator, drawing the cast differently excites me as well as my audience.”
This sort of stuff definitely excites us! The drawings are a thing of beauty. Check them all out below! We’re positive one of them will become your new phone background.

Aren’t they great? We can’t decide which one we like the most! We love that some of the Disney characters André chose share similarities with the Riverdale characters, too. For instance, Archie is totally a Hercules (his god-like physique is proof enough). We also can’t imagine anyone other than Madelaine as The Little Mermaid‘s Ariel. Oh, and FP is 100% the misunderstood Beast.
Great job, André! This is a Riverdale fairytale come true.
