Very Close To Heaven

Okay, so anyone born in the early 80s knows how special the second generation Disney animated movies are. The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Lion King - That whole era came while we were kids and the thought of it will forever bring back memories of belting "Part of Your World", both feet jammed into one leg of your sister's tights, a pair of creative seashells made of construction paper . . . No? Just me?

Annie Leibovitz, my photographic hero, has been doing a series of photos for the last year and a half or so, celebrating Disney's Year of a Million Dreams. They've all been gorgeous and magical and today the newest image has been released. Two things make this more amazing than the others: 1) Arguably the best actress of her generation, Julianne Moore, playing 2) the greatest Disney princess in history, Ariel, the Little Mermaid! It just makes me so happy.

See more of the series here.
Also, that cross-dressing mermaid thing never happened.
