The entertainment giant is facing some serious accusations.
Anticipation is mounting for the latest Star Wars origins story, especially since this forthcoming project focuses on the early life of the beloved Hans Solo. Disney has been releasing a consciously considered selection of promotional material, which included a short trailer during this year's Super Bowl. However, it is the character posters that is drawing the most attention, and not in a way the studio had initially hoped for.
A French artist by the name of Hachin Bahous has pointed out these specific graphic compositions are eerily similar to his album covers he designed for Sony. These artworks were created in 2015 for an anthology of musical releases, which predates the premiere of this Star Wars compositions by almost three years.
Comparing the two sets of images reveals an undeniable aesthetic similarity between Bahous' work and that of the graphic designer commissioned to create these Solo renderings.
Bahous took to Facebook, in a since-deleted post, to express his very valid opinion that his work had been copied, and is hoping to receive some credit and compensation for the appropriation of his designs; the artist is not looking to press charges as of now. Peep the images below and sound off in the comments section if Bahous' claims are legitimate or not.
