Drew Struzan, the now retired iconic poster artist responsible for the various “Star Wars” one-sheets over the years, has revealed that he’s mulling the possibility of returning to the franchise. Talking with Fanhattan, Struzan says:
“Oh, well, never say never… in fact, I got a couple calls already this week on Star Wars from Disney… 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.
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 grandkids 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.”
Struzan’s other famed work includes the one-sheets for classics like “The Thing,” “Blade Runner,” “Back to the Future,” “The Goonies,” and the “Rambo” and “Indiana Jones” franchises.
