Walt Disney - 50th Anniversary of his Death December 15 2016
Disney’s creations have a tendency, as the tagline to 1953’s Peter Pan proclaims, to ‘live in your heart forever’ and the posters that accompanied the film releases are just as enchanting.
To commemorate 50 years since Disney's passing we have picked out some of our favourite posters for his films.
The first-year-of-release posters may be some of the most valuable Disney, however our choice for this title would be the US 1 Sheet that accompanied the film's 1951 re-release. Fantastic deep rich colours and featuring everyone’s favourite dwarf dopey prominently.
One of our favourites for this title is the Czech 1970 (first-year-of-release in the country) with Vaca’s pop-art, almost psychedelic, design. Cinder's has never looked finer.
We love the very rare original-year-of-release 1953 US poster for one of our firm favourite Disney films, Peter Pan. The poster that's ideal for boys and girls who never want to grow up!
The artwork that accompanied the film’s re-release in the US in the 70s is one of our favourites. Positively ablaze with colour.
By far our favourite artwork for this title features on the very rare 1966 (first-year-of-release in the country) Polish poster. Baczewska’s alternative artwork is both utterly charming and contemporary. Certainly our number one pick.
The Jungle Book
We love the first-year-of-release 1967 US 1 Sheet and French artwork. However our preference has to be for this beautiful Czech 1974 (first-year-of-release in the country) poster, with sumptuous deep colours and fun original artwork by Hlavaty. Stunning.
