Artistic Disney Movie Posters

They made you laugh. They made you cry. It’s no wonder that we all love Disney movies. These stories are about characters who will remain in our hearts forever, so why not remind ourselves of the stories every day? Amazing, artistic movie posters can really capture the essence of these wonderful tales.

Movie posters make great collectible items, not only because they’re affordable, but because they make the best personalized and quirky wall decoration. You can find really high-quality movie poster prints that take the original idea of the movie and turn it into real art. Here are some of my favorite posters.

Pixar/Disney’s Up

The Wilderness Must be Explored!” by Eric Tan

Up is definitely one of my all-time favorites, filled with adventure and nostalgia, touching on the subjects of growing old while staying young.  I especially love the faux-folds of this poster, which imitates the piece of paper that Carl Frederickson carries around with him throughout the movie. The yellow tinge makes it look authentically vintage, yet the geometric shapes, shadings, and coloring of the poster gives it a modern feel.


The Future is Now!” by Eric Tan

Another modern, contemporary story that takes a different angle on the much-researched subject of love. Wall-E and Eve find their own happily-ever-after, but not before they’re faced with a whole set of challenges. This poster by Eric Tan was originally used during the promotion prior to the release of the film.

Donald Duck

Fire Chief

Donald Duck remains a classic in all our childhoods. Here, the old school bird is painted on different blocks of canvas to create a contemporary wall hanging.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Snow White” by Trevor Carlton

Snow White is making a comeback this year with several motion pictures coming out in theaters. But we’ll never forget where she really broke our hearts in Disney’s 1937 version. This vintage poster by Trevor Carlton reminds us of old-school days.


Paris, je t’aime. Inspired by 1920 French illustrations, this poster is entertaining and whimsical to look at, while clearly representing the movie Ratatouille. It’s whimsical and fun with a well-balanced mix of colors and dimensional shapes.

The Little Mermaid

Another Eric Tan rendering of the Little Mermaid, this artistic poster uses geometric shapes, modern shading, and contemporary color combinations. Yet there are still vintage tinges in the background and pixels, which makes it the perfect movie poster.

    Love Eric Tan’s work. How cool would it have been if they had him art direct the Little Mermaid ride at Disney California Adventure. Would have been neat to have a stylized attraction sort of like Mary Blair did with ‘it’s a small world’.
