Has the cover artist even seen the film? It looks nothing like the film!

Oh my gosh, yes. This is the best thing ever. I wish Julie was a tough broad! And I love how they handsomed up Netvor by turning him into an eagle instead of  a gore crow. XD

Panna a netvor aka The Beauty and the Beast bastardized by German distributor. :))
