Drew Struzan, famed Star Wars poster artist, has received a call from Disney to draw up the posters for Episodes VII-IX. However, Struzan hasn’t confirmed anything yet, only saying that it would have to be a generous offer. But how awesome would that be to have the artist who did the iconic posters for the first six Episodes bring back his branding for what’s sure to be the rebirth of the franchise? Yes, I’m betting that Star Wars Episode VII will be a rebirth, even if few details on the film has been released.
In an interview with Fanhattan, Struzan said,
“Oh, well, never say never, [laughs] because…in fact, I got a couple calls already this week on Star Wars from Disney. Oh my god, I’m trying to be retired! You know, I spent 35 years painting Star Wars. [laughs] I painted Star Wars before most of you were born! But I guess there is always a chance. There’s no intention. But I would love to have a day off every now and again, and I have to work a weekend and all through the night. If the opportunity arises, it will be a real temptation. But it’s going to have to be a real temptation to get me away from my wife and my little grandkids and my family. Away from the green trees and the blue skies for a change instead of just locked in the studio. But, you know, never say never. All things are possible.”
