World renown pho­tog­ra­pher Annie Lei­bovitz has taken a lit­tle help from var­i­ous celebri­ties to reim­age clas­sic Dis­ney char­ac­ters in real life.

Images include Jes­sica Biel as Poc­a­hon­tas, Scar­lett Johans­son as Cin­derella and David Beck­ham as Prince Phillip.

The series began in 2008, when Annie started her series for Dis­ney titled Dream Por­traits. The images fea­tured a series of celebri­ties and actors/actresses re-enacting a scene from var­i­ous Dis­ney movies. In 2011, Annie and Dis­ney revis­ited the series to add more images.

Annie Lei­bovitz is a celebrity pho­tog­ra­pher born in Water­bury, Con­necti­cut. There isn’t just one pho­to­graph that made Annie such a pop­u­lar pho­tog­ra­pher. She started her career work­ing as a staff pho­tog­ra­pher for the Rolling Stones (mag­a­zine). She was soon on tour with The Rolling Stones as their band pho­tog­ra­pher. Before long she was pho­tograph­ing celebri­ties and band mem­bers all over the world, and has been ever since.

Despite cre­at­ing some of the most iconic celebrity pho­tographs of our age, Lei­bovitz has had her share of money prob­lems. In Feb­ru­ary 2009, Lei­bovitz bor­rowed $15.5 mil­lion, putting the rights to all of her pho­tographs up as col­lat­eral. In July 2009, a breach of con­tract law­suit against Lei­bovitz was filed by Art Cap­i­tal Group in the amount of $24 mil­lion regard­ing the repay­ment of these loans.
