Earlier in the week a quote from Drew Struzan made it sound like hehad already been contacted by Disney about drafting posters forupcoming Star Wars films. Seemed like an early play by the Mouse, butI assumed they were after some teaser posters, an announcement imageor 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 thisweek on Star Wars from Disney? You know, I spent 35 years paintingStar Wars. I painted Star Wars before most of you were born! But Iguess there is always a chance. There?s no intention.And now.here's the update from Struzan's Facebook this evening:
Misunderstood?His work will be missed. Though, tomorrow being a new day, maybe he'llchange his mind.
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 offriends were wishing is only an expression of the hope that many aresharing but says nothing regarding the Studio itself. Even if 'they'did ask, which Disney has not, I'd rather leave the new films to thenext generation to interpret. I've had my time and they wereexceptional blessings for which I will forever be grateful.
Tomorrow is a new day?drew
