30 Reimagined Classic Disney Posters That Capture The Magic Of The Movie

Mondo Art Gallery and Cyclops Print Works had an art gallery show themed around Disney called "Never Grow Up: A Disney Art Show". This event invites fans of all ages to explore exciting new interpretations of Disney’s beloved classics and modern masterpieces.
The artwork in "Never Grow Up: A Disney Art Show" is the product of 30 artists, each of whom was allowed to show respect to their favorite animated Disney film—from Ken Taylor's modern version of "Big Hero 6"(2014) to James Flames' reimagining of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves" (1937). A few of the more recent additions are "Bambi," "Fantasia," "101 Dalmations," "Aladdin," "Lilo and Stitch," and "Pinocchio."
Mitch Putnam, co-founder, and creative director claims that movies play a significant role in his and his family's upbringing and their current lives. And the artists on this list have the same feeling as Mitch. They have expressed their adoration for Disney movies by creating incredible works of art.
We have gathered the best 30 classic Disney posters reimagined from the art gallery. Scroll down to see more!

#1 101 Dalmations by Jonathan Burton

Jonathan Burton says that "101 Dalmatians" is the most beautiful Disney movie, mostly because it was the first time the artists' original line drawings were employed in the final cells via the copy machine technique. He added that “The line work is sketchy, the color misaligned and it makes for a style full of life. My poster pays tribute to this, and in particular the rough production drawings of Disney’s Ken Anderson who himself was inspired by Ronald Searle.”

#2 Aladdin by Matt Taylor

For Matt Taylor, "Aladdin" is the pinnacle of classic Disney, so the opportunity to reimagine it is basically a dream project. The most enjoyable element, in his opinion, was getting to sketch that Genie bursting out of the lamp. He wanted to try to include some ancient Arabian design and decorating into the painting.

#3 The Black Cauldron by Randy Ortiz

This eery imagery is perfect for one of Disney’s darker animated films. We’re scared of the Horned King and the Cauldron-Borns just looking at it.

#4 Lilo & Stitch by Rosemary Valero-O’Connell

#7 Big Hero 6 by Ken Taylor

“Watching a Disney movie together with my kids is amazing, but making artwork for one of their favorite films takes it to the next level,” said artist Ken Taylor. “BIG HERO 6 is my eldest daughter's favorite, and I love it so much about this film. The story is super fun but it's the city that gets me in, the opportunity to draw San Fransokyo has been a blast and one of the best film poster experiences I have had. Hopefully, folks dig it as much as I do.”
