Russell Brand Is Captain Hook in Newest Disney Dream Portrait

Another new picture sees Jack Black, Will Ferrell and Jason Segel as the famous three hitchhiking ghosts.
Russell Brand channels his inner pirate in the latest portrait for new Disney Parks ad campaign captured by Annie Leibovitz. The British funnyman dressing up as the famed Captain Hook recreates the iconic scene that sees the Peter Pan archenemy narrowly escaping a saltwater crocodile.

Hook is known for replacing one of his hands with an iron hook after it was cut off by Peter Pan and fed to a crocodile, who liked the taste so much that the animal follows the pirate constantly hoping for more. The picture is appropriately tagged with "Where every moment leaves you hungry for more."

"There are similarities between me and Captain Hook in that I am an eaten, educated, piratical buccaneer living on the high seas stealing and robbing and loathing the perpetual innocence and childhood of Pan. Peter Pan! Oh, how I hate him!" Russell says. "And as for that crocodile that nipped my end... I'm fuming!"

In another image courtesy of Annie, Jack Black, Will Ferrell and Jason Segel portray ghost trio, Phineas, Ezra and Gus. Together, they stand in the middle of the road asking for a ride to the Haunted Mansion. Their ghostly photo is tagged with "Where you can go on the ride of your afterlife."

"I've had this poster on my wall since I was 15 years old," Jason gushes. "I was really honored and excited when I found out we were going to do this ... and with the two best dudes of all time!" He channels his inner Gus the Prisoner complete with his huge ball chain.

Other celebrities previously appearing on the Disney Dream Portrait series included Scarlett Johansson as Cinderella, Rachel Weisz as Snow White, Jessica Biel as Pocahontas, David Beckham as Prince Phillip from "Sleeping Beauty" and Beyonce Knowles as Alice (in Wonderland).
