I saw this on social media and really liked it so I wanted to introduce it here on my blog as part of the Star Wars Cinematic Universe posts. I am looking through other Star Wars books that I own and I am seeing so much concept art I have never seen before online, especially the earliest stuff drawn by Ralph McQuarrie. The original artist who really did bring Star Wars to life with his art.
So to celebrate every concept artist involved in creating “a galaxy far, far away”, I want to post concept art for the screen and match it to its scene in the movies.
Here are some scenes everyone will know even if the final version that made it to screen looks different:
I like that the droids were added to the final scene in the movie. To me that emphasizes just how important the droids were to Luke and Leia but mostly Luke 😊 In a way, they are every bit part of the Skywalker family.
Yoda looks a lot different in the concept art I think. You can still tell its him but they made a few changes before he was finally seen in the movies as the Yoda we all know and love.
Stay safe, keep creating, and I’ll catch you all in the comments or in tomorrow’s post!
