COMICS: Concept Art For 3 Characters From THE STAR WARS
As we know, George Lucas' original 1974 screenplay which would eventually morph into the movie phenomenon we all know and love is set to be adapted into an eight issue mini-series. Check out concept designs for General Luke Skywalker, Anakin Starkiller and a very different Darth Vader..
Lucas' unproduced screenplay for "The Star Wars" featured Luke Skywalker as an older Jedi General, Han Solo as a Reptilian alien, and another Jedi character named Anakin Starkiller. Now Dark Horse is teaming up with with J.W. Rinzler, executive editor at LucasBooks, and artist Mike Mayhew (Avengers) to adapt the rough-draft original screenplay for an eighth issue series. EW have an in-depth interview with Mike Richardson and Randy Stradley from Dark Horse, in which they ask them all about the project. They also debut the following pieces of concept art.
Stradley gives us an idea of what to expect.
"Visually I think it’s a lot closer to Flash Gordon. There’s still a lot of stuff that will be recognizable as Star Wars, but there are also a lot of different thing. For instance, Luke Skywalker is an older general and, uh, Han Solo is a big green lizard. Wookiees are the ones that lead the attack in the end on the Imperial Battle Station, which is never called the Death Star. Things are different but there are aspects that are the same as well."
