Disney's Xena: Warrior Princess

NIA is the artist who decided to redesign Xena and Gabrielle in a Disney style and the results are wonderful.

Here is what NIA had to say about the characters:
"She was one of my first strong female role models growing up.Her show was considered too ‘adult’ for me to watch, but when no one was around I’d flip on over to whatever channel she was on just to see tall, dark and gorgeous kick ass onscreen.
Although at the time I didn’t understand the significance of her character in popular culture, my recent interest in reviving her is simply because right now we just don’t have those well rounded leading female characters that were so prominent in the ’90s. We need more Xenas & Gabrielles, Buffys, and Dana Scullys on the big and small screens for little girls to admire."
