Drew Struzan Rumored to Not Return for Star Wars Episode VII.
Jedi News is reporting that Drew Struzen will not be back to do the posters for Episodes VII, VIII, and IX.
According to their source “Unnamed Source” this is the way it will be:
Bit of rumoured news: Drew Struzen (sic) can’t be convinced to come on board for the poster. Now looking at BLT Communications LLCto do the design.
This is not exactly news, but more confirmation of what we heard some months back upon the rumor he would return. Drew has said as much on his Facebook:
A couple of friends at Disney were fantasizing about the new STAR WARS movies.
“Disney” has said nothing to me and I expect nothing. That a couple of friends were wishing is only an expression of the hope that many are sharing but says nothing regarding the Studio itself. Even if ‘they’ did ask, which Disney has not, I’d rather leave the new films to the next generation to interpret. I’ve had my time and they were exceptional blessings for which I will forever be grateful.
Tomorrow is a new day…drew
It is a shame not have Drew back. By the same measure, perhaps we can get some new young artist to really take us into the next decade of Star Wars? Hopefully the marketing on the new film is handled with the same care the last three Star Wars films received. I for one enjoyed the tone poems and interesting things they did for the first trilogy in the story.
As always, thanks to Jedi News for the update!
