Celebrities In Fairy Tale Scenes

At the request of Disney, Annie Leibovitz has taken photos of celebrities based on the magic of Walt Disney’s theme parks. They are part of a new promotion for the Year of a Million dreams.
Each image features a scene from a Disney movie with a special featured celebrity transformed into the role of a fabled Disney character.

Scarlett Johansson

As Cinderella, Scarlett Johansson is seen running down a flight of stairs as the clock strikes midnight with her glass slipper unknowingly left behind. The tagline reads, “Where every Cinderella story comes true.”
Befitting a true princess, Johansson wears a stunning, one-of-a-kind Harry Winston tiara — a dazzling piece in platinum with more than 62 carats of sparkling diamonds and valued at $325,000. The dress worn by Johansson is a custom-made, Cinderella-inspired gown designed by Nicoletta Santoro.

Beyoncé Knowles, Oliver Platt and Lyle Lovett

Beyoncé appears as “Alice in Wonderland,” twirling in a teacup, accompanied by Oliver Platt as the Mad Hatter and Lyle Lovett as the March Hare. The tagline reads, “Where Wonderland is your destiny.”
“It’s two great imaginations coming together — Disney and Annie Leibovitz,” said Lovett. “To be along for the ride really is quite something, just knowing that you’re going to be part of a great Disney character. And then when you step into the imagination of Annie Leibovitz, you know you’re in another world.”

David Beckham
David Beckham plays the part of the gallant Prince Phillip from “Sleeping Beauty,” atop his trusted steed fighting the evil dragon. The tagline reads, “Where imagination saves the day.”
“There were many Disney characters I liked as a kid,” said Beckham. “Now my sons love the Disney characters and it’s a big part of their lives, a big part of many children’s lives around the world. So to be part of that is an honor and very exciting.
“I love going to Disney, I’m like a big kid,” he added.

Roger Federer
Tennis ace Roger Federer, who has been the #1 ranked men’s tennis player in the world for four consecutive years, portrays King Arthur and pulls a sword from the anvil that holds a magical grip upon it. The gallant scene is reminiscent of Disney’s animated film ‘The Sword in the Stone,’ in which a young King Arthur follows the wizardly teachings of Merlin.

    These were awesome. My only minor quibble is with the Pocahontas pic. Jessica Biel is clearly Caucasian, and Pocahontas would not have been as pale as that. For heaven’s sake–Pocahontas was a Native American…

    I also was not aware that the Blue Fairy had an apprentice.

    Nice to see Beyonce’ as ‘Alice,’ and David Beckham as ‘Prince Philip.’ Also loved Baryshnikov as ‘Peter Pan.’ Considering how wonderful a dancer he is/was, that was a prime choice.

    LOVED Whoopi as the Genie!

    Um, and Alice was not Black, she was blonde with blue eyes, obviously Aladdin and Jasmine were Arabic and not Latin. It’s kind of the point for the people in the photos not to entirely resemble the character they are portraying….
