Rare Unseen STAR WARS Poster Art
I love it when when insanely cool stuff like this from the original Star Wars trilogy finds its way into the light after all these years. Just when you think you've seen it all we get to see more original 1970s and '80s Star Wars poster art for the first time. A new Star Wars Art Series book is being released. It's the fifth and final book of series, and it includes rare never-before-seen posters that were created for the theatrical release of the film. The book was written and edited by Jonathan Rinzler, who says,
“This was not really a research book; George really wanted to show the posters without credits. He wanted to highlight the art. So my job was to try and find the actual artwork or layered artwork so we could take off the credits so you could see the artwork for what it is.”
Below you'll find seven pieces of artwork that were designed for posters that Lucasfilm never used for some reason. The illustrations are freakin' amazing and worth your time to check out.
