Photograph Annie Leibovitz’s collaboration with Disney Parks for the wonderful Disney Dream Portrait series continues. This time with the first every character from a Pixar film. Jessica Chastain portrays Princess Merida from “Brave” in this portrait entitled “Where your destiny awaits.” Chastain previously appeared in “The Help” a Dreamworks film distributed by Walt Disney Studios and for which she received multiple award nominations.

I’m not sure they captured Merida’s horse correctly, but I do love the choice of subject for this photo. What do you think? How did they do capturing the spirit of Merida?

  1. As a sister Redhead to Merida with Scottish Heritage to boot…I have to say SPENDID subject matter! But if they would’ve had an Angus horse, Merida wouldn’t seem so diminished by a beautiful black horse with long mane and tale!

  2. I love the picture! This portrayal of Merida is quite true to form and supports what we originally loved about her, she was independent, strong, a tomboy, and a little wild. Well done!!
