STAR WARS: EPISODE VII Fan Art - "We're Back"

Here's a fun piece of fan art for Star Wars: Episode VII called "We're Back" featuring an older Luke, Han, Lando, Leia and Chewy, who basically looks the same. Do Wookies get grey hair when they age? The illustration was done by Deviant Art user rhymesyndicate who says,

As a long-time fan of Star Wars I was overjoyed to hear that there are finally plans for more feature films now that George Lucas has sold the franchise to Disney. I know not everyone agrees – but I’ve been waiting for this since 1983 and I think it’s great news! 

The momentous event prompted me to dust off my digital pen and draw this picture to show how I imagine the lead characters might look now. I have no idea if the plan is to use the same actors in the new movie – although I really hope they do.

I also gave them new costumes – nothing radical – just variations on what we saw them wear in the original trilogy. I’d love to design new characters and costumes for the new movies – but for this piece the main thing was to get the actors’ likenesses right and I’m pleased with the result.
