Beyonce is Alice in Wonderland

Would you help Beyonce find her way home if she was lost?

Beyonce helped kick off Disney Park’s Year of a Million Dreams celebration by taking a wild spin in a whirling, giant teacup and portraying Alice from Alice in Wonderland. She was joined by actor Oliver Platt as the Mad Hatter and singer-songwriter Lyle Lovett as the March Hare.

Celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz shot this scene from her farm in upstate New York.

Says Beyonce: “It was Annie‘s idea for me to play Alice. If she wanted me to do it, I was up for it, because she’s such a genius… [Cinderalla] it is my sister’s (Solange Knowles) absolute favorite! She doesn’t know I’ve done it yet, so she’s going to get a real trip out of seeing me in the teacup. It was freezing cold in the teacup, but it didn’t matter because we were all so excited and it was shot really fast.”

Says Leibovitz: “We had some teacups from Disneyland shipped in. I hadn’t realized that they each weighed several hundred pounds. We had to place them with a forklift. It took a whole day to do that, and then I couldn’t move them, because the field was wet.”

David Beckham and Scarlett Johansson were also tapped to portray other fabled Disney characters. David Beckham takes on the role of gallant Prince Phillip from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. Scarlett Johansson plays Cinderella.
