Jessica Chastain Is Brave’s Princess Merida in New Disney Dream Portrait (PHOTO)
Jessica Chastain is the latest lucky celebrity to embody a classic Disney character in the Disney Dream Portraits series — Princess Merida from Brave, in this case — shot, as always, by acclaimed photographer Annie Leibovitz.
In the photo, Jessica smirks as she draws back her bow, with Merida's trademark wild hair surrounding her. She rides Angus, her loyal horse, who runs at a full gallop. "Where your destiny awaits," the caption reads, the W drawn in the classic Disney font.
Of course, Jessica didn't voice Merida in the movie — that job went to Scottish actress Kelly MacDonald of Boardwalk Empire fame.
Brave,which hit theaters in June 2012, became a critical and commercial hit for Pixar, even winning the Oscar for Best Animated Film.
Meanwhile, Jessica Chastain — still riding high from her 2012 Oscar nomination for Zero Dark Thirty — recently wrapped production of Christopher Nolan's forthcoming space travel epic, Interstellar.
Other indelible Disney Dream Portraits have featured Taylor Swift as Rapunzel, Beyonce as Alice, Scarlett Johansson as Cinderella, Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez as Aladdin and Jasmine, Penelope Cruz and Belle… the list goes on.
Our only question is: How do we get these beautiful works of art on our walls?
