All he uses is paper cutouts – and a little imagination.

Briton Rich McCor is using his photography and paper art skills to give British cities a makeover. Talented Rich uses cutouts of Disney characters and his imagination to make well-known scenes from movies. He has transformed London’s silhouette into Peter Pan’s playpark, and used King’s Cross railway station in such a way that it looks as if webs are spouting from Spiderman’s hands.

“A couple of weeks ago Disney got in touch and asked if I was up for a challenge. They wanted to see if I could put a Disney twist on some iconic UK city scenes,” he said on Instagram. “I said, ‘Sure’, made some cutouts, made a playlist (crucial for any road trip) and set off. First stop: Glasgow and the Clyde Auditorium. All done to help promote the brand spanking new @DisneyLifeUK app.” Here Rich uses Newcastle’s Tyne Bridge for the growing up scene with Simba, Timon and Pumbaa in the popular movie Lion King.

He changes Glasgow’s Clyde Auditorium into the fish Nemo, from the movie, Finding Nemo, and transforms Liverpool’s Albert Dock Yard into the dance hall in which Belle and Beast dance in the movie Beauty And The Beast.
