On the official Drew Struzan Facebook page a few minutes ago the artist has just put the record straight on the reports he had been approached by Disney to paint the posters for the new Star War movies. He writes
A couple of friends at Disney were fantasizing about the new STAR WARS movies.
"Disney" has said nothing to me and I expect nothing. That a couple of friends were wishing is only an expression of the hope that many are sharing but says nothing regarding the Studio itself. Even if 'they' did ask, which Disney has not, I'd rather leave the new films to the next generation to interpret. I've had my time and they were exceptional blessings for which I will forever be grateful.
Tomorrow is a new day…drew
This is sad news as it would be such a plus point to have Drew Struzan doing the movie posters. How do you think should paint the new posters?
