Ralph McQuarrie Interview: The Star Wars Gallery


The official Star Wars Youtube Channel has uploaded a cool new video that features an interview with Ralph McQuarrie, where he talks about his iconic concept art and how it defined the look we all know and love for Star Wars.

In this special featurette from the Lucasfilm vault, Star Wars concept artist Ralph McQuarrie discusses his work and paintings that helped to visually define a galaxy far, far away, and bring George Lucas’ vision to life. In his early meetings with Lucas, the filmmaker hired McQuarrie to create some illustrations that would help visualize his script for the movie studio. McQuarrie began work the same day, and soon, Star Wars was a go. To his surprise, many sequences from the film looked exactly like his concept paintings, which included initial designs for C-3PO and R2-D2, Darth Vader, the Millennium Falcon, and others, all seen in this video.
