When you wish upon a star,
if you ask nicely, they’ll dress up like Disney characters and pose
for you. The second round of images from famed celebrity photographer
Annie Leibovitz’s Disney ad campaign came out this week.
While they’re not nearly as trippy as the Beyoncé, Lyle Lovett
and Oliver Platt teacup of insanity
from last time, they’re even more dreamy. Like Rachel Weisz
as Snow White dreamy.
I’ve got to give it to Annie:
Rachel was an inspired bit of casting. In fact, seeing her commune with
nature with her raven hair and milky skin, I can’t think of a single
other actress that would be better for the part. Look, even Bambi agrees.
And if you thought that was
good, how about Julie Andrews
as the Blue Fairy (from Pinocchio) with her apprentice fairy, portrayed
by Abigail Breslin? Julie can now add fairy to her illustrious
list of roles, including nun, nanny and a woman pretending to be a man
pretending to be a woman.
So, what do you think?
Has Annie captured that Disney magic? And who else should she cast as
fairy tale favorites? Kate Winslet
as Sleeping Beauty? Sarah Shahi as Princess Jasmine? And as long
as we’re thinking out loud here, anyone else think Angelina Jolie
would make a killer Maleficent?
