David Beckham Plays Prince Charming for Walt Disney


David Beckham plays Prince Phillip from Sleeping Beauty in this image that was released by Disney today. It's a promo for Disney Park's Year of a Million Dreams celebration.

Annie Leibowitz shot the image at Burguillo Lake in Spain, near Madrid in mid-December.


It's not the first time Beckham has worked with Leibowitz. She also shot the moody campaign for his fragrance, Instinct.

I think he plays the part quite well. But is there a part for Victoria in all this?

See the other shots from the campaign here.

  1. I don't get it. What's he endorsing? A new movie? The disney brand? The newest in fashion capes? I'm lost. :-(

  2. It's just their current ad campaign for their parks, Rich.

  8. Disney in damage control. They have been exposed as a hydra for the right-wing and they are trying to get celebrities images to hide the true nature of the Disney brand. If evil was ugly would anyone go near it?

  9. It must be interesting to go through life looking at everything as a conspiracy or cover up.

  10. Ggreen, like I posted earlier in a different thread, I find it interesting that Disney is now considered a puppet/tool of the right wing, when it used to be considered horrifyingly liberal in the 90's for its positions on domestic partner benefits and other pro-glbt policies.

  11. In light of all the crap that Disney and ABC have been pulling lately -
    1) Getting Spocko's Brain blog removed because he showed their advertisers at KSFO what sociopaths ABC Radio is promoting in San Francisco,
    2) Glenn Beck on GMA
    3) Letting Faux News run scenes from the 'Path to 9/11' "Docudrama" and tout it as factual, refusing to enforce their copyrights as they did with Spocko (Spocko made the mistake of targetting repubs. Path to 9/11 only smears Patriotic Democratic Americans.)
    4) Isaiah Washington (ABC didn't step in until it was clear they faced a financial hit from the gay and other civilly-minded communities's gonna be real tough for me to give any more money or other support to these folks.

    I don't know if even offering free rides ON Beckham would help...

  12. I cannot for the life of me figure out where I just saw the Beyonce one..Id really like to see the full version of the Beyonce one and the Scarlett one too.

  13. I wish he wasn't coming to America. I am already sick of hearing about him.

  16. Its the main ad on right now - It looks like Lyle Lovett is sitting next to Beyonce in a teacup - there is another picture of Scarlett Johansson in a gown running down a flight of stairs.

  17. What do you mean? Isn't that Victoria all in white?

    Posted by: David | Jan 26, 2007 5:40:16 PM

  18. Yeah, they lost me there...Beckham, Beyonce and Scarlett Johanson..and then they have Lyle Lovett and Oliver Platt in the Beyonce one..How did those 2 sneak on the set? I thought they said international celebrities..

  19. Annie, Annie, Annie... (sigh)

  20. Have any of you heard him speak?

    I saw him in an interview and the illusion was BUSTED. His voice is so high pitched and fem that drag queens have butcher voices.

    Posted by: jimmyboyo | Jan 26, 2007 5:49:15 PM

  21. PS

    he actualy does sad....

    hunt up some of his old interviews on You tube...You will loose all respect for him being a man

    Posted by: jimmyboyo | Jan 26, 2007 5:50:47 PM

  22. oops I vomited

    Posted by: Eric | Jan 26, 2007 6:14:24 PM

  23. I think he's one of the handsomest (and peaceful--do you ever hear him speak?) celebrities we have. I can't wait to see what becomes of him over here.

    As for his wife, she's just not pretty enough (by America's standards of beauty). Her pig nose, that attitude and that sulky face are not going to cut it here in the states.

  24. Posh and Becks are looking forward to Becks first season here in LA...I think that he is super hot and I think she is very pretty...if you don't like some media version of her that's fine, but attacking her looks is kind of cheap

    Posted by: Tyler | Jan 26, 2007 6:40:07 PM

  25. Are you fuckin' kidding me about this? Usually I don't bitch like a queen about anything Disney Parks does but this is just too over the top for me.
