A long time ago, in the underground realm, where there are no lies or pain, there lived a Princess who dreamed of the human world. She dreamed of blue skies, soft breeze, and sunshine. One day, eluding her keepers, the Princess escaped. Once outside, the brightness blinded her and erased every trace of the past from her memory. She forgot who she was and where she came from. Her body suffered cold, sickness, and pain. Eventually, she died. However, her father, the King, always knew…
“The men in his battalion said that when General Vidal died on the battlefield, he smashed his watch on a rock so that his son would know the exact hour and minute of his death. So he would know how a brave man dies.”
Guillermo Del Toro commissioned legendary poster artist Drew Struzan to do this poster design for Pan’s Labyrinth. The movie studio ultimately refused to use the poster and opted for a more generic photoshopped design in lieu of Struzan’s hand painted work.
Struzan is well known for his iconic posters for the Star Wars and Indiana Jones films.
