Snow White Commemorative Posters (50th Anniversary - 1987)

Animator/artist Ron Dias was commissioned by Disney to create this special 50th anniversary commemorative poster. The artwork shows Snow White waving goodbye to the Dwarfs as they head off from their cottage. Measures 28” x 22”. A number of the posters that are still available through resellers have been personally signed by Ron as seen in this instance below (signature to the right of foot bridge).

Two Snow White "50th" posters were issued by McDonalds. Available for purchase at the participating fast food restaurants, the proceeds went to support the Ronald McDonald charities.

The first design was patterned after the official theatrical one-sheet and features the Princess in the pink dress. The second highlights the Dwarfs as they return home to Snow White at the cottage. Both posters measure 35" x 23". Ronald McDonald House and Ronald McDonald Children's Charities logos are printed along the bottom.
