The Walt Disney Company was founded in the US in 1923 by Walt Disney and Roy O. Disney. Disney is famous for its film studios, theme parks, TV and cable networks, Mickey and Minnie, Donald and Daisy, and an impressive list of acclaimed animated and live action films.

The Disney brand has appeared across toy lines, books, games, food and drink promotions and numerous household goods worldwide. In 2012 the company purchased the Lucasfilm Star Wars franchise to add to its entities. TVTA is pleased to feature some of the wonderful advertising and packaging that has represented the Disney brand during the late 20th century.

This awesome Star Wars art exhibition is currently being shown at L’espace Villeneuve-Bargemon in Marseille, France from 3 December 2015 up to 17 January 2016. If you get chance to see it do – you won’t be disappointed by these superb and original scenes from the Star Wars universe that are cleverly lit up in subtle neon and set within a cool and sleek science-fiction atmosphere that the venue ably provides.

The artworks have been created by the international collective of artists known as Poster Posse – some of the finest and in-demand graphic artists working today in film, TV series, comics, video games and books. The event has been put together by Disney, Lucas Film, Café Pixel and ACME Archives. Official website is here
