Drew Struzan “Misunderstood” About Star Wars Posters – Not Asked, Not Interested

Earlier in the week a quote from Drew Struzan made it sound like he had already been contacted by Disney about drafting posters for upcoming Star Wars films. Seemed like an early play by the Mouse, but I assumed they were after some teaser posters, an announcement image or the like.

But… oops. It was all a big misunderstanding, he says.

Here’s the original quote:

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.

And now.here’s the update from Struzan’s Facebook this evening:

Misunderstood…

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

His work will be missed. Though, tomorrow being a new day, maybe he’ll change his mind.
