This newest addition is of Merida, the feisty protagonist of Brave, portrayed by actress Jessica Chastain.

While I absolutely love Annie Leibovitz’s work in this series, I’m a bit on the fence for this one because Jessica Chastain just looks…too old to play our young Scottish princess…it’s weird because I feel like I’m looking at an aged Merida, in her early twenties. Angus’ face also seems a bit out of focus, but that’s nit-picking.
I do have to say, I love how perfect Jessica's hair is!
On the Disney Parks Blog post, many fans are commenting that Disney should release a book with all the portraits in the series (either now or whenever it’s completed). I wholeheartedly agree – I’d buy it in a second!
Tune in tomorrow for an update with a behind-the-scenes video.
What do you think of the new portrait overall and the casting of Jessica Chastain? Who do you think Annie Leibovitz should do next for the series?
