Just as the best fantasy movies transport us into far away lands like the Emerald City in The Wizard of Oz and down the rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland, the best fantasy movie posters remind us of the fantasy lands that await our imaginations.

The trailers for these movies get fans in the seats, but the movie posters allow them to remember the fantasy lands long after the credits roll.

So if you're a fan of the science-fiction and fantasy movies of this generation or those past, make your love for the genre known by adding your favorite fantasy movie poster to this list.
