Last week was Disney’s World Princess Week, a celebratory event that is described as the “beloved storytelling of Disney Princesses.”

There are many Disney Princesses to choose from these days: Belle from Beauty and the Beast (1991), Rapunzel from Tangled (2010), Jasmine from Aladdin (1992), Ariel from The Little Mermaid (1989), Tiana from The Princess and the Frog (2009), Merida from Brave (2012), and Anna and Elsa from Frozen (2013), to name just a few.

Celebrations may have taken place at Disney Parks, however, even out here in the real world, many fans took to the Internet to commemorate this special occasion and call out some of their favorite Disney Princesses. And one fan in particular decided to “cross the streams” between Disney and a totally unrelated franchise.

Per Ghostbusters News, Ghostbusters fan Andrew Wells produced a stunning picture of several Disney Princesses in Ghostbusters uniforms, with Gozer’s Temple as the backdrop. Check out the image below, which was shared by Ghostbusters News’ Twitter/X account:

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a female Ghostbusters teamGhostbusters: Answer the Call (2016) featured four female Ghostbusters, Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy), Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig), Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon), and Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones).

While that film was a critical and financial failure, the four female Ghostbusters could appear in the upcoming sequel to Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021), especially with multiverses continuing to be a popular trend in cinema (there’s definitely a bigger chance of this happening than the 2016 reboot ever getting its own sequel).

Back to the multiverse in question, which combines the world of Disney with that of Ghostbusters, this female Ghostbusters team isn’t limited to four, as there are 15 Disney Princesses sporting flight suits and proton packs.

Starting from left to right, they are as follows: Snow White, Merida, Moana, Jasmine, Rapunzel, Anna, Elsa, Ariel, Tiana, Pocahontas, Mulan, Cinderella, Mirabel, Belle, and Sleeping Beauty/Aurora.

Wells credits several digital sources that were combined to create this awesome ensemble, from the original Ghostbusters (1984) to the upcoming life simulation adventure game Disney Dreamlight Valley (2023).

Meanwhile, your favorite Disney Princesses have officially teamed up in a brand-new feature on Disney+.
