Instagram artist samuel_cheve draws John Wick in the style of Tangled’s Flynn Ryder, showing what John would look like as a Disney prince.
Some incredible fan art on Instagram re-imagines what John Wick would look like as a Disney character. The master assassin is played by Keanu Reeves, who recently revealed he would be willing to take on the character as long as he is able to.
The first John Wick film debuted in 2014 and subsequently revitalized Reeves’ career. Since then, the action film has spawned two more sequels. Critics not only praised the intense action sequences, but Reeves’ acting as well; as a result, John Wick 4 is scheduled for release on May 27, 2022. Not much is known about John Wick 4, but the plot will tackle John’s war against the High Table and the Continental Hotel. Though it was initially set to be released in 2021, John Wick 4 has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Aside from the planned sequel, the immense popularity of the John Wick franchise has also led to a Starz spinoff show called The Continental, although it isn’t yet clear if Reeves will make an appearance.

Instagram user samuel_cheve recently created and posted fan art depicting John Wick drawn in the style of a Disney animated character. Samuel_cheve draws Wick in his trademark suit and tie combination, with his arms crossed and holding a pencil. The first picture in the multi-image post shows a side-by-side between Wick and Tangled’s Flynn Ryder, the latter of which samuel_cheve likely used as inspiration for his re-imagined Wick. You can check out this amazing fan rendition of John Wick below.
The comparison between John Wick and Flynn Rider is surprisingly apt. Flynn is more outwardly confident and boastful than John, but John’s self-assured and efficient fighting style speaks volumes. Both characters are also skilled criminals that, at one point, stopped committing crimes to be with the person they loved. It worked out well for Flynn, but not so much for John. The addition of John’s pencil, which is a nod to his ability to improvise weapons, is also a nice touch.
Although Reeves shines as the role of John Wick, seeing what he would be like in an animated setting is certainly a treat for fans. Of course, with the John Wick franchise ever-expanding, it’s hard to say what creative direction producers will want to take next. While the franchise will likely stay live-action for now, samuel_cheve should be the first person called if there’s ever any interest in expanding John Wick into animation.
