Disney Dream Portrait: Jennifer Hudson As Tiana From The Princess and the Frog behind the scenes

Periodically, Disney releases news photos from their Disney Dream Portraits series by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, which takes celebrities and puts them in the roles of iconic Disney characters in their fantastical movie settings. For instance, for portion of the series, Olivia Wilde became the Evil Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves; Penelope Cruz was Belle with Jeff Bridges as the Beast from Beauty and the Beast, and Queen Latifah was transformed into the evil Ursula from The Little Mermaid (see those images here).

Now, Disney has released a new portrait – this one is of singer/actress Jennifer Hudson as Tiana from Disney’s animated feature The Princess and the Frog. The photo shoot took place in an actual swamp, called The Great Swamp, and you can see the new portrait, titled “Where you always follow your heart,” as well as a behind-the-scenes video here below.

Wreck-It Ralph smashed box office records for a Disney animated film in its opening weekend, and won over critics and audiences no less. With its creativity, heart and passionate storytelling, Wreck-It Ralph signals Walt Disney Animation Studios is back in the game, so to speak. This edition of Disney In Depth will explore what has led up to this new hit for the studio, as well as what awaits.

Many individuals say the Disney Renaissance began with 1989’s The Little Mermaid, with following entries Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Lion King reaching even greater heights – everyone seems to leave out the forgotten The Rescuers Down Under. Regardless, this represented a period of unparalleled imagination and inspiration within the studio, continuing for several years to follow. Then came the slump. Audiences were no longer interested in musicals, so it seemed, and Disney animation switched gears into the sci-fi realm with productions like Atlantis: The Lost Empire and Treasure Planet. Computer animation emerged, and with that advent Disney entered the new arena with misses like Chicken Little and the awkward-yet-smart Meet the Robinsons. None of these performed all that wonderfully. It had appeared as though Disney lost its touch. But the studio had some exciting developments up their sleeve.

At the bi-annual Destination D event at Anaheim’s Disneyland Hotel last week, the Disney D23 Official Disney Fan Club hosted a series of events that focused on the legendary history of Disney animated features. Hundreds of Disney fans gathered inside the resort’s convention center to obtain exclusive access to lectures, concerts and footage. Over the coming weeks inside Disney In Depth, I will cover some of those topics featured in the fascinating presentations held at Destination D. As for now, this edition will focus on the exciting future of the division we know as Disney animation.

Walt Disney Animation Studios appears like it is entering that third renaissance we have all been waiting for.

During “Inside Walt Disney Animation Studios Today,” animator Darrin Butters hosted an appealing round-up of the studio’s newest projects.
