Famed photographer Annie Leibovitz released her latest Disney theme park ad campaign photos for her Disney Dream Portrait Series this week that includes British comedian Russell Brand as Peter Pan’s nemesis Captain Hook.
During an interview for Us Weekly, Brand said he can relate to the personality of Captain Hook.
“There are similarities between me and Captain Hook in that I am an Eton-educated, piratical buccaneer living on the high seas stealing and robbing and loathing the perpetual innocence and childhood of Pan,” Brand said. “Peter Pan! Oh, how I hate him!”
Another Leibovitz Disney ad campaign photo depicts comedians Jack Black, Will Ferrell and Jason Segel portraying the “Hitchiking Ghosts” Phineas, Ezra and Gus shown as part of a popular ride at Disneyland, the Haunted Mansion.
Leibovitz who has been a photographer for over the last 30 years has produced some of the most memorable images of all time that have included the Obamas, Queen Elizabeth II, and the infamous John Lennon and Yoko Ono image.
Her very latest images produced for the “Let the Memories Begin” celebrate some of Disney’s most popular animated movies as celebrities depict the starring roles from Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and Little Mermaid and many others.
Some of the celebrities included in her Disney photos are: Olivia Wilde, Alec Baldwin, Julie Andrews, Abigail Breslin, Beyonce Knowles, Penelope Cruz, Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Michael Phelps, Scarlett Johansson, David Beckham, Rachel Weisz, Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Biel, Whoopi Goldberg, Queen Latifah, Gisele Bundchen, Orlando Bloom, Lyle Lovett, Oliver Platt and famous ballet dancer Mikkail Baryshnikov.
