The photo shoot was for the Disney Dream Portrait series, part of the Disney Parks ad campaign, which has found many stars portraying their favorite Disney characters in the past, from Rachel Weisz as Snow White and Russell Brand as Captain Hook to Jack Black, Will Ferrell and Jason Segel as the ghostly hitchhikers from the Haunted Mansion.

Famed photographer Annie Leibovitz captured Jessica for their third collaboration as she aimed a bow and arrow on a champion steed, and the Oscar nominee says of her Brave counterpart, "I definitely see her as a modern princess. She's headstrong, she's funny, she has great passion. It's a good role model for young girls."
