Drew Struzan’s Kind Words About Star Wars: The Force Awakens

(Spoiler: They're good opinions.)

Star-Wars-The-Force-Awakens (1)

Drew Struzan’s got some things to say about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Not only has he read the script, but he’s seen the movie (okay, half of it). And you know what he has to say about it? This man, who’s been involved in one way or another with every Star Wars movie? This man who probably has every right to be jaded and cynical about the whole thing? That Struzan? “… it is far and away probably going to be THE BEST Star Wars you’ve ever seen.”

Hold on to your butts, kids.

In an interview with Movie Weekly, when Struzan was asked about the process he goes through to create these posters and how involved he is with the movies’ actual content, he said:

I’ve never worked with J.J before and so we started working on it and he showed me like half the movie and it was just… a wonderful film and I know it’s going to be grand. I got to read the script and subsequently I’ve seen half of it and I can tell you and the fans this, Honest to god, it is far and away probably going to be THE BEST Star Wars you’ve ever seen.

When pressed for more details, he only had this to offer:

Well it’s beautifully made and it’s a wonderful story.

You tease. You lovable, artistically gifted, absolute master of the craft. If you aren’t on the hype train yet (where have you been?), then tell us: does this get you on board now?
