Nobody Is Better at Slaying Dragons Than David Beckham
|"Where imagination saves the day"|
David Beckham, the famous soccer (football) star married to the famous Victoria Beckham of the Spice Girls, was chosen by Annie Leibovitz to portray Prince Philip from "Sleeping Beauty." He is shown atop his mighty steed fighting the evil dragon in the climactic scene at the film's conclusion. The tagline reads, “Where imagination saves the day.”
This is one of the more popular Disney Portraits that I have posted, which kind of surprises me. I thought David's popularity was waning just a tad. Apparently not. Well, I'm not complaining. This is just a little more proof that David Beckham is not just some garden-variety fading celebrity, but instead is someone to whom many people feel a strong connection.
“There were many Disney characters I liked as a kid,” said Beckham. “Now my sons love the Disney characters and it’s a big part of their lives, a big part of many children’s lives around the world. So to be part of that is an honor and very exciting.
“I love going to Disney, I’m like a big kid,” he added.
Aren't we all?
