Drew Struzan has recently given an interview to Fanhattan about a recent painting he has done for Being Human.  Now this is interesting.  In the interview Mr Struzan announces that he has been approached by Disney to do the posters for Star Wars VII.
Now I hope he does.  The build up for Star Wars VII is going to be intense but imagine seeing the posters for the first time?  Drew Struzan posters too.  Problem is from his comment it may not happen.

"Oh my god, I’m trying to be retired!" Struzan laughs. "You know, I spent 35 years painting 'Star Wars'. I painted 'Star Wars' before most of you were born! But I guess there is always a chance. There’s no intention. But I would love to have a day off every now and again, and I have to work a weekend and all through the night. If the opportunity arises, it will be a real temptation. But it’s going to have to be a real temptation to get me away from my wife and my little grand kids and my family. Away from the green trees and the blue skies for a change instead of just locked in the studio. But, you know, never say never. All things are possible."

We will keep you up to date on whether he will or not.  Fingers crossed though.
