Disney contacted longtime Star Wars artist Drew Struzan for a possible new designs and art for Star Wars: Episode VII and beyond. With time to think about it, the planned release date is 2015 for Star Wars: Episode VII screenplay is said to be in work with Michael Arndt. Struzan also known for other notable posters such as The Thing, Back to the Future, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter plus more.
When recently asked the question if he would be returning to do the posters, Struzan said this,“Oh my god, I’m trying to be retired!” Struzan laughs.” 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. But 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.”
