Movie Posters vs DVD Covers for Kids’ Movies
I recently saw a gallery showing the difference between the artistic and dramatic tone to movie posters as opposed to their bright and colorful DVD covers, also shoving in minor characters into the mix.
i think i might have an explanation for this. the poster is trying to appeal to adults, specifically parents. a parent has to drive to the theater, purchase the tickets, and watch the movie with their kid at the theater. they have to be invested enough and know it’s not going to be a dumb little kid feature based on the poster.
on the other hand, the dvd is appealing more to the kids; shopping with their parents they see a colorful dvd with lots of fun characters and even if they didn’t see it in the theater they beg their parents to buy it. the parent doesn’t have to watch it with them at home, and it’s only another handful of cash so they buy it for their kid when they ask.
it’s not a bad thing, just marketing. the truth is that if they put the beautiful and artistic posters on the dvds, they probably wouldn’t make as much money.
wait omg this is amazing
wait what does this symbol stand for :$
^what the fuck has been going on in your childhood
SWEET SKIES ABOVE
If I saw this while I was walking down the street I think I would legitimately start screaming and weeping in joy.
Oh, it’s even smeared.

I don’t get it. What is that meant to BE?
IT’S THE GODDAMN SIMBA WHERE DID YOUR PARENTS GO WRONG
lilo and stitch actually is the most depressing film that disney ever made
it’s literally about parents dying and a child being forced to raise her younger sister and about an alien coming and wrecking their house and having the fbi on their case only to show them true family and how to love each other when they feel so alone and really like no movie made me cry as a kid like this movie did
it’s also one of the most uplifting stories for the same reasons. nani is one of the strongest and most real characters in any disney movie imho, because here’s this girl who has been strong through losing her parents and having to raise her little sister. she’s doing the best she can by trying to find a new job, trying to keep her sister happy and safe, trying to work with CPS to keep her family together. she’s got to deal with having her whole world turned on its ear constantly and she is such a powerhouse. sure, she loses her cool, but in her situation, others would do it in far less productive ways. she is fantastically protective of lilo and just wants everything to be okay.
nani is the serious best character ever.
Lilo and Stitch is Disney’s greatest achievement
