French Artist Calls Out Disney For Plagiarizing His Work For ‘Star Wars’ Posters
By Izza Sofia, 05 Mar 2018
French artist Hachim Bahous has called out Disney for apparently ripping off his work.
Earlier this year, Disney released promotional posters, along with a trailer, for the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story.
The pop art-style movie posters bear an uncanny resemblance to Bahous’ series of album covers, which he had designed back in 2015.
Bahous posted a side-by-side comparison to Facebook, which you can view below.
The artist explained he was flattered that Disney had recognized his work, but commented that copying it completely without his permission was something that could not be tolerated. He expressed his wishes for his work to be credited and paid for accordingly.
Take a look at the similarities between the Star War’s poster and Bahous’ work below.
