I get to spend my days designing some of the characters, environments, and spaceships here at Lucasfilm — and also had the very fun task of helping create the six Star Wars Rebels Imperial poster cards that popped up online this week. (Before working on Star Wars Rebels, I was a concept artist on Star Wars: The Clone Wars and several LucasArts games, including The Force Unleashed.)

In the final installment of StarWars.com’s interview with Dave Filoni about Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season Five, available now on Blu-ray and DVD, the show’s supervising director discusses a few details about those long-awaited bonus episodes, passing on what he has learned from George Lucas, and creating Star Wars Rebels — with a little help from his friends. (In case you missed them, be sure to check out part one and part two.)
Tatooine, Alderaan, Hoth, Bespin, and Yavin are names of Star Wars planets that all fans are quite familiar with nowadays. With Star Wars Rebels and several new movies on their way, we’ll soon get acquainted with new planets we might have never heard of before. Or perhaps the names of these planets will sound familiar after all.
The Dark Horse Comics adaptation of The Star Wars brings to life the rough draft from 1974 by George Lucas, and the series enables us to get a better look at planets that appeared in the early imaginings of The Star Wars, such as Aquilae and Ophuchi. With the recent release of The Making of Return of the Jedi the circle of the classic “making of” books by Jonathan Rinzler is complete. This trilogy offers a great amount of information about the different drafts that were written for the films.
Let’s have a look at the names of the planets and moons that were used in the drafts of the movies. Maybe we will see some of them resurface sooner or later…
Rebels and Imperials converged on Gotham earlier this month for the New York Comic Con at the West Side’s Javits Center. The convergence from both Core World and Outer Rim gave evidence of the ever-expanding Star Wars universe as we continue moving into the new century and another generation.
Hello Star Wars fans,
If you have followed the Clone Wars TV series over the years you will no doubt be familiar with the names of some of my team who are, for the most part, behind the scenes. When I was first making my transition from traditional hand drawn animation to the possibilities CG animation offered, I was very concerned with how the drawings Kilian Plunkett and I were doing would be realized in three dimensions. How did we solve this problem? Enter design artist and sculptor Darren Marshall. Darren has been a member of the Lucasfilm Animation team for eleven years. Predating the creation of The Clone Wars, Darren was part of a special team of artists who were pitching animated concepts to Lucasfilm. When I came in to direct The Clone Wars, Darren was about to leave, believing his time at Lucasfilm was over, since it is rare to have a sculptor on a television series. However, when I saw his work, I knew that Darren would be able to make the critical translation between line art and three-dimensional form work. Simply put, Darren defined the style of the characters on Clone Wars, and has done so as a critical part of the design team for the past eight years.
