Ralph McQuarrie’s Art Comes to Life in this Concept Trailer for The Star Wars

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away… we might have seen a version of ‘Star Wars’ that featured a Han Solo with green skin and gills, Stormtroopers with lightsabers, and a female heroine named Luka Starkiller.

Many of these anomalies can be seen in concept artist, Ralph McQuarrie‘s early illustrations of the ‘Star Wars’ universe. While looking back at these early paintings we can’t help but wonder what ‘Star Wars’ would have been like had it remained loyal to the concept art and early drafts of the script.

The Star Wars was created by the DAVE School of Orlando, Florida, graduating class of August and October 2017.

    That was really cool! I remember pouring over a book of his artwork when I was a kid. It’s Star Wars, but it has its own flavor to it.
