I’ve written on this blog before about how much I like the Disney Dream Portraits that cast celebs as iconic Disney characters. It’s so cool to see personalities collide, like in the last series, where Queen Latifah was made up as Ursula from The Little Mermaid.
The most recent photo from the series, though, is kinda lame. Disney thought really hard about who should be cast as Captain Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies and came up with … Johnny Depp.
It’s a cool picture, no doubt, but I kind of thought the point of these portraits was to surprise and delight. I would have liked to see another actor from the movies dressed as Captain Jack — maybe Penelope Cruz, who stars in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
Check out a second photo featuring Johnny as Captain Jack (along with Patti Smith as Random Pirate) after the jump.
