Artist unites all Disney stars into one giant image – The Disney Universe


If you think back through all the Disney and Pixar movies you’ve seen over your life, you’ll realize that stars and the night sky often play a big role. UK Artist Marianne Hanoun saw this and made it her challenge to collect every star from every Disney and Pixar classic animated feature-length film into one giant image. The whole process took almost three years, but now you can see her final work called “The Disney Universe”

Hanoun painstakingly collected every star from every Disney and Pixar animated classic feature-length film and brought them together to create The Disney Universe. For the first time ever, stars from ‘Pinocchio’ (1940) will sit next to stars from ‘Frozen’ (2013). The process saw her collect — ultimately amassing just under 3000 individual screen grabs — cut, and blend stars from every film. The result is a four metre-long metallic print. It acts as a celebration of Disney’s animation history and legacy, and their belief that ‘When You Wish Upon A Star…Your Dreams Come True’.

When she was younger, all Marianne wanted to do was work for Disney. So she decided to give it a shot and make her childhood dream come true by creating something that celebrates Disney’s history and legacy.

WonderGround Gallery July Artist in Residence is Amy Mebberson


There are a few Disney fan art creators who I feel Disney should scoop up immediately and mass produce their art. Amy Mebberson, of Pocket Princesses comic strip fame, is one of them. As it turns out, Mebberson actually does work for Disney. They’re not creating Pocket Princess vinylmation dolls at the moment, but they are doing the next best thing. She’ll be the artist in residence July 4 – July 20 at the WonderGround Gallery in Anaheim’s Downtown Disney District. Look for appearances on July 4-6, 11-13, 18 – 20 from 6-10p.m. each night.

I hope you’ll stop by and say hi to her for me when she’s at WonderGround.
