Disney Posters That Aren't Safe For Children

Disney film posters might conjure up images of glossy twee prints adorning a seven-year-old's bedroom, but graphic designer Rowan Stocks Moore creates a more sinister take on childhood classics. Bringing out the darker heart in each film, these posters use a muted colour palette to make a subtle connection to their theme.


I love that Alice doesn't feature in this Alice in Wonderland print. Instead, the symbols for each suit of cards make up the face of the Queen of Hearts. Seems wrong that a club drawn over a heart can make such a creepy image.


Oh, Bambi. Don't think about Bambi if you're sat at work. His mum was just SLEEPING.



Awesome combination of fantasy and reality in this Peter Pan poster, with the clock dividing the scene in two. Neverland is only ever a few steps away from wherever you are, it seems.



Pinocchio is free! I like that the "I" of Pinocchio has transformed into a real boy. That's a nice touch.

Each print is £13.29 from Rowan's Etsy shop. Have a look at all his Disney prints on his Tumblr and at TQS magazine.

  2. I like the posters, but I'm not 'sat' at work - I'm sitting at work.

    1. That seems like the most popular choice. It's a stunning print, and I think everyone remembers weeping over it as a child.

  6. Good posters, but they don't have anything to do with Disney.

    1. Well they're not endorsed by Disney, but they are based on Disney films rather than fairy tales - The Little Mermaid and The Aristocats are also part of the series.

    2. Yes, exactly this. They do hark back to the darker origins of most fairy tales though.
