Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens as Philip and Aurora in Sleeping Beauty by Annie Leibovitz – Photo!

* SPOILER ALERT *

Since it’s only a matter of time that teen celebrity gossip site Just Jared Jr releases the photo as they claim in this article, I’ve decided to empathize with the masses and offer a better version of the photo that will appear in Disney twenty three magazine. I’d like to thank everyone for their support, especially the dozens of ‘Zanessa’ fans who have caused StitchKingdom to have the best day ever in terms of traffic by a huge margin. And for the record, kids, I’m not a girl. To see the photo, you must click the Show button below. You can click the photo again to enlarge it and the cross-hairs in the lower left hand corner to see the full sized version. Enjoy.
