Last year, we posted the first in Nick Scurfield’s Star Wars-themed “Destiny” art series. The ongoing series depicts young versions of key characters from the Star Wars universe in acts that foreshadow their (say it with me) DESTINY! We now have 4 more fantastic pieces from the series, featuring “youngling” versions of Chewbacca, Han Solo, Anakin Skywalker, and Princess Leia.
This art series, with its very sentimental and cinematic feel, conjures up images of Steven Spielberg’s Empire of the Sun. If any of these characters have to be revisited in their youth on the big-screen (fingers crossed that they don’t), I wouldn’t mind someone like Spielberg directing the young actors. The same goes for J.J. Abrams, who did a wonderful job getting performances out of his young cast in Super 8.
