Photo Gallery: Gemma Arterton Photoshoot

Story sketch by Burny Mattinson, color by Paul Felix ©Disney Enterprises, Inc. All rights reserved. Courtesy of Disney comes this mini-photoshoot of Gemma Arterton who portrays Princess Tamina in Prince of Persia: Sands of Time from Walt Disney Studios and Jerry Bruckheimer. Also starring a bunch of other people I guess.

Not really sure whether these are simply promotional images (not your typical Disney fare) or if they’re from something bigger and better as we received no details other than the images themselves, but after intently studying them for several hours, I have made an executive editorial decision that it doesn’t matter.
