A while ago we did a series of minimalist Disney posters which looked something like this:
and you can see the big versions here.
Last week we saw the newest pleaser from Disney, Brave, that we’d been waiting since first teaser trailer to see. Or more specifically, since we fell in love with Tangled and wanted to see something else equally exciting. Brave did not disappoint us (though it was surprising to see a Disney princess without a romance) and today we celebrate it with the twenty first minimalist poster.
Now we’re waiting impatiently for more Disney fun.
First, thanks for all the interest in our recent TV shows posters and all the nice reactions. In the future we plan to expand this project but today it’s a different set of posters.
Even though we’re not exactly a target group, we loved Tangled and it reminded us of all those older Disney animations we were brought up on. So today we present our tribute: simple posters for 20 classic Disney movies. Again, it was so much fun.
And, should you be interested, the posters are available here.
Snow White and Seven Dwarfs (1937)
Alice in Wonderland (1951)
Peter Pan (1953)
Lady and the Tramp (1955)
Sleeping Beauty (1959)
One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961)
The Jungle Book (1967)
Robin Hood (1973)

The Little Mermaid (1989)

(Obviously this is fan work and we don’t own either Disney or its titles.)
P.S. And here a poster for Brave.
We saw Steve McQueen’s movie Shame because of the poster above, on the left. We found it intriguing and remarkably quiet: the kind of poster which suggests things rather than yells at you. It has gloomy yet tasteful colors and impressive typography without unnecessary frills: just white Futura, smaller than it might be and more arresting for that. We weren’t alone in our appreciation because the poster has been cropping up on lists of best movie posters for 2011.
