30 of your favourite movie posters have been recreated using only emoji

This Emoji Mosaic generator makes it easy to turn any image into a piece of emoji art — so we emoji-fied the posters from 30 of our favourite movies.

Engineered by New York Times web developer Eric Andrew Lewis, the website renders any image into piece of emoji artwork.

We used it to turn Harry Potter, Darth Vader, and even the cast of “Mean Girls” into awesome emoji masterpieces.

Emoji are so popular, they’re even getting their own movie. While we wait for the all-emoji flick, these posters should tide you over.

And here's the emoji mosaic version. Do you wanna build an emoji snowman?
