It is part of photographer Annie Leibovitz's 'Disney Dream Portrait' series that has included the likes of David Beckham and Beyoncé in the past.

"There are similarities between me and Captain Hook in that I am an Eton-educated, piratical buccaneer living on the high seas stealing and robbing and loathing the perpetual innocence and childhood of Pan," Brand is quoted as saying in US Weekly.

"Peter Pan! Oh, how I hate him! And as for that crocodile that nipped my end, I'm fuming!"

Jack Black, Will Ferrell and Jason Segel have also appeared as Phineas, Ezra and Gus, the Hitchhiking Ghosts from the Disney Parks' Haunted House attractions.

"I've had this poster on my wall since I was 15 years old," Segel said. "I was really honoured and excited when I found out we were going to do this - and with the two best dudes of all time!"

Russell Brand is currently in talks to join Larry Charles comedy Pierre Pierre.
