Artist Grodansnagel illustrated and wrote this series of tragic alternate endings to beloved Disney Princess movies (and a bonus Anastasia and Swan Princess ending)...

Disney Tragic Tales
What Would I Give

This is based on a deleted scene from The Little Mermaid, where the evil Queen throws Ariel at a rock and kills her, Triton, however, revives her. But in this picture there is no happy ending.

Disney Tragic Tales
A Tale Ends

Gaston and the Beast have their epic battle, but Belle arrives earlier than in the movie and proclaims her love to the Beast, whom in his turn transforms into a human. Gaston watches on in awe; furious over the fact that Belle chooses the Beast he stabs her in the back.

The Beast becomes enraged and kills Gaston just after being mortally stabbed himself. He then crawls to the dying Belle and the two embrace one last time, and die.

Disney Tragic Tales
One Heart

This is an alternative version to the tale of Snow White. In this picture The Huntsman didn't spare Snow and took her heart, leaving her corpse in the woods, where the Prince finds her.

Disney Tragic Tales
What Once Was Mine

Rapunzel is chained, and Eugene is tricked up into the tower, but Rapunzel warns Eugene just in time for him to dodge Gothel's knife. He trips her and steals the keys to Rapunzel's chains and frees her. Gothel sneaks up from behind but Rapunzel attacks Gothel and the two fight. For one second Rapunzel lets her guard down and Gothel shoves Rapunzel out of the way, Rapunzel stumbles and hits her head mortally wounding her.

Flynn runs to Rapunzel's aid; and as Rapunzel dies her hair turns brown and Gothel rapidly grows old (like in the movie and falls out of the tower). Flynn tries to stop the bleeding from Rapunzel's head, but it's all in vain and Rapunzel dies in Eugene's arms.
