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…

    wouldn’t Amy Adams be a better Ariel? I mean, she may not be a real redhead, but look at the woman, she’s so effing gorgeous in any haircolor.

    I got so orgasmic when I red the heading title but then it stopped.
    WTF? Moore? Could they get any older?

    What about the hotter redheads?
    And I’m talking about you, Amy Adams.

    I like Julianne Moore, and think the photos are gorgeous….but honestly Ariel is supposed to be 16 years old, people. Julianne is 47. Too old. I agree that Amy Adams would have been a better choice. And Natalie Portman as Ariel??? Hell to the no! She is plain jane. She does not have the beauty of any Disney princess.

    Beautiful. She looks so much younger than 47 it’s amazing.

    Are we really debating whether the celebrities are the appropriate age? They’re fairy tales.

    First of all, Julianne Moore is a talented actress and has had a long career. She is a very respected actress. Hence why Anne picked her. I also applaud Anne for picking Moore, who is 42 and still looks stunningly beautiful. Why does it matter that Moore is 42? Why do Ariel must be portrayed by Isla Fisher or Linsday lohan when they’ve only been in this field for a short time? And also, in the Mermaid story, Ariel’s age is never revealed and she kills herself to give her love a life. But overall, its harder nowadays for older actresses to snag roles due to the demanding of younger women in the entertainment industry. Look at Jodie Foster, Jamie Lee Curtis, Susan Sarandon, they all quieted down whereas the newcomers are everywhere in these paparazzi pics. Again, Anne L knows what she is doing and she has been in this business for over 40 years.

    can we please shut up about age? These portraits aren’t necessarily about replicating the films, they are about capturing the emotion of the films. I think Julianne Moore is stunning and she is beautiful in these pictures.

    I couldn’t agree more. WHO CARES ABOUT AGE!!?? Besides Julianne was the perfect choice for Ariel. She even has the same likeness. And as for now, with the sequel released about 8 years ago, the character is now a mother of a 12 year old girl. So why not? Think about it! This picture makes total sense to me.

    BTW The merman is absolutely beautiful!

    @Meggie: Let’s be serious, though: Julianne Moore looks better at 47 than Lindsay Lohan does at 25. And Baryshnikov looks pretty good for 65.
