As part of her on-going series for Disney Parks, celebrated photographer Annie Leibovitz has added more Hollywood actors and actresses into re-enactments from famous Disney movies. The new series features Olivia Wilde as the Evil Queen and Alec Baldwin as the Magic Mirror from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Penelope Cruz and Jeff Bridges as the eponymous Beauty and the Beast, and Queen Latifah as Ursual from The Little Mermaid. These photos are much better than Leibovitz’ work for Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark, but to be fair, nothing’s going to stop that musical from looking silly.
Hit the jump to check out the photos as well as some behind-the-scenes video of Wilde, Baldwin, and Latifah talking about the shoot.
The fairytale of a princess with a wicked stepmother jealous of her beauty, Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs was Walt Disney’s first full-length feature and the world’s first animated feature-length film. Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs hasn’t been available since 2001 and this version won’t last long before it goes back into the Disney Vault. My full review is after the jump.
Disney has now announced what we will be seeing at the D23 expo this year. The event will take place from September 10-13 in Anaheim, California and it has a pretty fun and exciting line up. Over the 4 days Disney will be showing exclusive sneak peeks of “A Christmas Carol”, Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland”, “Prince of Persia”, “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”, “Tron: Legacy”, and “Toy Story 3″. Selected scenes from “Beauty and the Beast” in 3D and the 3D double feature of “Toy Story 1 & 2″ will be shown along with some newly restored prints of classic Disney films such as “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” and “Sleeping Beauty”. To find out what else will take place at D23 and how you can attend. check out the full press release after the jump.
Now before we start getting readers foaming at the mouth (that’s probably from rabies and you really need to get that checked out) and losing our journalistic integrity (we have some and you know it), let me say this: registering domain names is absolutely no indication that there’s been a greenlight on a particular project. At best it means that there’s been the slightest sliver of interest within a studio and they want to make sure they own all relevant domain names before they’re swiped by Internet squatters (the folks who buy up thousands of domain names in their hopeless quest that some company will pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to release the domain).
But Disney has recently registered some interesting domains for films like “Monsters, Inc. 2″, “The Tiger King”, and “World War Robot”. Hit the jump for details.
