A handful of concept art pieces leaked the other day, and I thought it was worth talking a bit about the value of these illustrations.
Me, and many of my generation are probably as excited as it's possible to be for a movie. I even knowpeople outside my generation are excited for the new movie. The popularity of Star Wars extends far beyond the kids that grew up watching it.
And we just can't wait. We have to know all the information right away! Every little piece of news regarding the JJ Abrams directed movie has the internet buzzing. Now that Lucas is out of the picture, we shouldn't have to worry about repercussions should we leak secret information. It's not like the new owners are overly protective of their copyrights.
|Well, except if your image sort of resembles one of their million trademarked logos.|
But for the sake of the fans that want to go in to the theater with zero knowledge of what's coming, I'll put a break.
So hop on in for Star Wars Episode 7 concept art!
|Kira is, as far as I know the female protagonist, and she looks to be a Jedi. I like the style, it looks to be a bit more practical than the robes the Jedi usually wear.|
|Is this her companions? The droid looks to be a cuter version of R2D2.|
|Except in the comics, but who read those?|
|Max von Sydow has a role in the new movie. Is this his character? Is this the same dude brooding over Vader's helmet?|
So there it is. Leaked Concept Art from the upcoming Star Wars movie. There are more illustrations floating around on the net, but I chose the ones I liked the most.
Personally, I don't feel anything is spoiled, and like I said, this only makes me more excited for the movie. Now, I don't intend to find out everything in advance, Fan Boys style. But I welcome drops and bits to remind me of the potential of this movie.
