Disney Leading Ladies

Here is a little background information on a few actresses who acted out scenes for the animators.
Though this article was published many years ago, it is fun to see faces next to the drawings. Everybody was cast perfectly for their individual roles, Kathryn Beaumont not only provided live action reference, but also voiced her characters beautifully.


  1. Did character design change after actresses / actors were selected? It seems that live actresses looks had som impact to characters looks.

  2. What a joy to see this article! And what beautiful pencil drawings! Thanks!
