Jason Segel, Russell Brand + More Get Their Disney Dreams on for Annie Leibovitz
Jason Segel, Will Ferrell, Jack Black, and Russell Brand are the latest celebs to pose for Annie Leibovitz’s Disney Dreams portrait series!
You’re probably already familiar with Annie Leibovitz’s Disney Dreams portrait series, right, Bettys? Depicting Hollywood stars as Disney icons, the series has thus far given us images of Scarlett Johansson as Cinderella, Rachel Weisz as Snow White, David Beckham as Sleeping Beauty’s Prince Phillip, and Queen Latifah as Ursula the Sea Witch—among many, many others, of course. They’re great fun, and they just go to show that you’re never too old for Disney. And hey, look! Disney has just unveiled two more brand new entries! Neat-o!
In the first portrait, Russell Brand poses as Peter Pan’s nefarious Captain Hook in one of his more… shall we say, vulnerable moments:
Better not step wrong, Russell, or that croc will be liable to chow down on you! Indeed, the caption reads, “Where every moment leaves you hungry for more.”
The second portrait features three of my personal favorite characters: The hitchhiking ghosts from the Haunted Mansion ride:
Jack Black, Will Ferrell, and Jason Segel take on the roles of Phineas, Ezra, and Gus (bet you didn’t know the ghosts had names!) as they try to find a few unsuspecting victims to take them home with them. The caption reads, “Where you can go on the ride of your afterlife.” According to Disney, the new batch of portraits will appear in GQ, O Magazine, People, People En Espanol, Vanity Fair, Real Simple, Essence, and InStyle.
Just for kicks, let’s take a quick look behind the scenes of the photo shoots, shall we?
