It’s been a few years since Disney and photographer extraordinaire, Annie Leibovitz last released any new pictures from the “Dream Portrait Series”. The “Dream Portrait Series” is a collection of advertisement photographs that features A-list celebrities of the movies, television, music, and sports as characters from classic Disney movies. There has been a numerous amount of photos featuring celebrities such as tennis champion Roger Federer, singer/actress Beyonce, actress Scarlett Johansson, and more. Well, we finally get some new additions to the already popular series starting with Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy, Cowboys vs. Aliens, House M.D.) as “The Evil Queen” and Alec Baldwin (30 Rock) as the “Magic Mirror” from ‘Snow White and Seven Dwarves’. Also new in the set is rapper/actresses, Queen Latifah as Ursula from ‘The Little Mermaid’ and Penelope Cruz (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) and Jeff Bridges (True Grit, TRON: Legacy) as “Beauty and the Beast”. From the looks of it, Jeff Bridges is once again channeling the his inner “Dude” as the “Beast”.

“mermaids, zombies, and blackbeard…”

Yesterday, at the peak of the morning at Disneyland, guests were invited before the park opens to check out the premiere of the trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides in 3D. A little over 500 guests got a chance to check out the trailer. For those of you busy at work like me or just didn’t know, Disney has released the trailer after the premiere online for you viewing. I have to admit that I was very skeptical about a fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie, but after watching the trailer, the mood is darker and seems more interesting that the last two installments in the series.

In this action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise, Captain Jack Sparrow crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), and he’s not sure if it’s love–or if she’s a ruthless con artist who’s using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.

Of course the “sex” factor is missing with Kira Knightly not being in this movie, but the exotic Penelope Cruz is very fun to watch. Plus, she is smoking hawt in her costume. Hit the jump to check out the official trailer for Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
