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.
