Drew Struzan made some of the most iconic film posters of our time. He has made many memorable posters for movies like Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Back To The Future, Blade Runner, Harry Potter and many more. Although now officially retired, there were some rumors from last year that Drew has been asked to do the posters for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode 7. Later he denied the rumors. Now I new report suggests that the legendary artist might return to the galaxy far far away after all...
Here's the scoop from the guys from SchmoesKnow:
We here at Schmoes Know have learned from a close source to Drew himself that none other than JJ Abrams has contacted him to come OUT OF RETIREMENT to do the poster art for Star Wars Episode VII. Not only will this tie in the fan base and magic of the original trilogy, but it will connect the new saga to the original feelings we all have based in part from the wonderful posters we all know and love. And Drew has agreed to return!
I’m told this is a done deal and something Drew is interested in doing, even though as I mentioned, he’s “technically” retired. We’re hearing an announcement will be made very soon.
Drew Struzan returning to Star Wars is yet another great move by Abrams. If you read Struzan's previous interviews (above in gold) you can definitely sense that although retired if asked he would gladly return to the galaxy far far away. I really hope this is true and I can definitely see it happening.
