Disney’s newest fairy movie “The Pirate Fairy” is ready to set sail on April, 1 2014. Not only will it be full of fairy dust and fun adventures, but its lead character received a designer touch as well.
Walt Disney Studios teamed up with designer Christian Siriano to bring the newest fairy, Zarina, to life in “The Pirate Fairy“. Zarina is a dust-keeper fairy that falls in with a band of pirates, including a cabin boy named James.
“I loved the challenge of this project. I haven’t designed for an animated character before, and I’m excited to take my skills into Zarina’s world. She’s a unique and new character and I wanted to help make her memorable and iconic. Disney characters are everlasting and I’m so happy as a young designer to help create a bit of Disney history, “ said Christian Siriano.
“Zarina is a powerful character, able to run a Pirate Ship and we wanted her to be a strong, adventurous fairy. Christian is phenomenal at creating bold, amazing silhouettes that truly celebrate a woman for who she is – powerful, feminine and fierce. He was the perfect choice,” said Peggy Holmes, Director of THE PIRATE FAIRY.
Take a look at a couple of his sketches and then what they turned into when Disney animated the process.
