Apparently Drew Struzan doesn’t know the meaning of the word “retirement.”
For those of you who don’t know who he is, Struzan just happens to be one of the best movie poster illustrators of all time. He’s done work for Back To The Future, Indiana Jones, and more. Well now he’s firing up the paintbrush for a little movie called Star Wars: The Force Awakens and it looks magnificent.
The poster was unveiled at the D23 EXPO, which is Disney’s conference dedicated to itself. Director J.J Abrams was on hand along with some stars from the movie to help with the unveiling but honestly, the poster stole the show. It has slight spoilers, so if you are a die hard fan who wants to go into the movie with virgin eyes I suggest looking away now.
Otherwise, enjoy this poster. Moments like this only happen once a generation.
