Julianne Moore is The Little Mermaid

Check out the latest Disney Dream Portrait entitled “Where Another World is Just a Wish Away,” which shows actress Julianne Moore, portraying Ariel from The Little Mermaid,” surrounded by other mermen and mermaids including Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, 22 (foreground).

“I leapt at the chance,” Julianne, 47, said. “Ariel is my daughter’s favorite princess, so I was just really so excited to do it. All the images I’ve seen that Annie‘s shot so far – Cinderella and Alice and the prince one – are absolutely exquisite. They are so beautiful and so kind of wonderfully emotional. So I was really thrilled to be asked to work with her and do this.”

“Yes, Julianne has a big mermaid tail; it’s interesting,” photographer Anne Leibovitz recalled from the shoot. “Michael, too. His movements were so graceful and beautiful you just felt like you were watching a real merman.”

Watch the video below of Phelps and Moore‘s photo shoot!!!

Flipping his fins, you don’t get too far…

Little too old for Ariel, but there’s no prettier redhead!

# 2

I just don’t get why dont they pick YOUNG people for those photoshoots. I mean Mikhail Barisnikov as Peter Pan and Julianne Moore as Ariel is just pathetic!

# 3

She probably picks the people she picks because this is about more than just looking like a cartoon drawing. I’m sure Annie Leibowitz knows what she’s doing – she sees something in the people she picks that works for her vision.

If notice, the photographer is talented and actually wanted these images to work, so she of course is gonna work with the best

Get a clue…

To Zoe:

I always thought that there would be a little mermaid pic and I picturized Bryce Dallas Howard like Ariel. She´s young, but Julianne is wonderful.

isla fisher is a beautiful redhead who could have also made a perfect ariel…

Julianne looks okay but I think they should’ve chosen Isla Fisher or Amy Adams.

Ekhm!@Why not Natalie Portman ;(

why do u guys talk only about the actress but not about the BEST SWIMMER? just look at Michael! he’s gorgeous and amazing and beautiful and… i don’t have much more words to describe this biggest talent!!! and by the way it’s very good commercial of Mickey before the Olympics ;))) well done. :)))
PS: pix are awesome!… but Mikey is better. :)

First of all, how hard was it for Disney to find a real Native American to play Pocahantas or a real Middle Eastern actors to play Alladin and Jasmine instead of J-LO and her skinny ass husband.

These people are too old, too tired and has beens. They should have used young children for the roles…RIDICULOUS.

Can Julianne Moore be any MORE AIRBRUSHED!!!!

# 24 – my point exactly! Children would be much better and much more charming than celebs, they used. The only real suitable casting is ScarJo for Cinderella and Woopy Goldberg for Ginny, the others are either ridiculous miscating or some strange kind of flattery.
