Those Awesome SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY Character Posters May Have Been Ripped Off From A French Artist

French Arist Hachim Bouhous claims the inspiration for the character posters created for Solo: A Star Wars Story were stolen from art he created for work done under Sony. Check out the comparison below.

You know those really cool character posters for Solo: A Star Wars Story that gave us all hope for the upcoming spinoff film? Well, turns out, Disney/Lucasfilm may have stolen the concept from another artist.

French Artist Hachim Bouhous has accused the House of Mouse of using his previous work for a Sony music release, without his consent, as the basis for the recently released character posters for Solo: A Star Wars Story. Taking to to Facebook, Bouhous posted a lengthy message alongside a side-by-side of the Solo posters and his work. It's not 100% confirmed that the Solo artist used/stole Bouhous art as inspiration, but it certainly appears that way.

The post (originally in French but translated by the social media website) reads:

Left the official posters of the next Star Wars (Disney), right the compiles for which I made the creation in 2015 for Sony Music France / Legacy Recordings France following the brief of the project leader Romain 'Rpiz' Pizon.

I am flattered that the quality of my work is recognized, but it is still pure and simple forgery, I have not been asked for my permission, I wish to be credited and paid for this work I have done for Sony!

A thought for everyone who worked hard on this very beautiful project: Dj Reverend P (Patrice Larrar), Richard LecocqAurélien OrelDavid HachourYazid Manou and Yazid Manou So Romain 'Rpiz' Pizon.


A simple Amazon search for the albums mentioned reveal images that appear quite similar to the ones used for Solo. And seeing as how the art by Bouhous has been around since at least October of 2016, it would seem that Disney and Lucasfilm have some explaining to do.
