Acclaimed Poster Artist Drew Struzan says The Force Awakens is Franchise Best
When veteran movie poster artist Drew Struzan was contacted by Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams, the director sounded ‘like a fanboy’ on the phone.
This is one of the nuggets Struzan shared in a recent interview with Australia’s Movie Weekly. In case you don’t know Struzan’s work, we recommend spending a little time on his website viewing his astounding portfolio of film posters. He has a pretty unique perspective on Star Wars, having having designed art for pretty much every movie in the franchise.
Of note to those of us who can’t wait for this next installment, Struzan has some rather high praise for the upcoming installment:
“I got to read the script and subsequently I’ve seen half of [The Force Awakens], and I can tell you and the fans this, honest to god, it is far and away probably going to be the best Star Wars you’ve ever seen.”
Struzan isn’t the only Star Wars franchise stalwart involved in The Force Awakens: In case you weren’t aware, others returning to duty are stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher; composer John Williams; and screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan.
The film opens Dec. 18….which is in 10 days from this posting if you’re counting….
