It all started with two droids rolling through an alien desert, a concept art painting by Ralph McQuarrie that brought George Lucas’s vision for Star Wars into sharp focus.
Starting today in celebration of Star Wars Day, Disney+ will honor the artistry that began more than 40 years ago and continues with the dedicated concept artists at Lucasfilm now. In addition to the arrival of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the series finale of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and the premiere of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, the streaming service will add concept art to celebrate each chapter in the Skywalker saga and beyond. You can check out a few works of concept art that will be featured below:
Like a commemorative gallery, each film and series’ artwork will be updated on May the 4th to feature its original concept paintings. From Star Wars: A New Hope to The Mandalorian, the updated art will feature work from celebrated artists such as the legendary Ralph McQuarrie and Academy Award-winning artist, author, and production designer, Doug Chiang.
On the Disney+ home screen, the animated Star Wars logo will also get an upgrade with a new animation that honors the hyperspace jump that transports us all to a galaxy far, far away.
