Disney Reveals Mary Blair Style Illustrations of Cinderella Castle 50th Anniversary

As Walt Disney World prepares for the 50th Anniversary celebration beginning October 1, 2021, the excitement continues to grow for all of us Disney fans! Disney Imagineer, Zach Riddley, recently took to Instagram to share beautiful illustrations of Cinderella Castle in the style of Mary Blair. Check out the illustrations and details as shared below.

As shared via Zach Riddley Instagram: “Our past is always inspiring our future. Our Imagineering team drew inspiration from Disney Legend Mary Blair for our transformation of Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom in honor of the upcoming 50th Anniversary celebration beginning October 1, 2021. A couple weeks ago we shared a rendering of how this new dĂ©cor will come to life. And for the first time – I’m excited to reveal this new @WaltDisneyImagineering illustration of Cinderella Castle in full 50th Anniversary regalia in the style of Mary Blair. Her enchanting visual designs and use of color for the film Cinderella were our source of inspiration, which you can swipe to see courtesy of the @DisneyAnimation Research Library. We wanted to go back to the original story of this beautiful structure to create something entirely original for this grand celebration. Fanciful ribbons wrap in air around the castle turrets – inspired by the scene in the film where Cinderella is transformed in her stunning gown. And Mary’s designs provided us a beautiful palette of rich hues to choose from – deep blues, purples and shimmering golds mesh with a touch of EARidescence that will catch light and evolve through the day and into each evening. Over the coming months we’re excited to share more of our progress as this stunning transformation happens before our eyes.”
