First Look At Star Wars: Episode VII Concept Art, Probably
That was your first ever look at Star Wars: Episode VII. Did you miss it? Scroll up and look again, most of it’s happening behind Kathleen Kennedy’s head.
The photo, which was originally released on the Lucas Film website, shows a production meeting in full swing at Lucasfilm. Pictured are Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy, visual effects supervisor John Knoll, production designer Rick Carter, tech VP Kim Libreri, and Jason McGatlin, the senior vice president of physical production. What are they meeting about? Lucasfilm hasn’t confirmed it, but it’s a safe bet to assume they’re talking about Star Wars.
Why do we think they’re talking Star Wars? Because behind them is a big stack of concept art, concept art that almost certainly has something to do with Star Wars: Episode VII, the new movie currently heading into production under the watchful eye of notoriously secretive, slightly paranoid, lens-flair lovin’ director J.J. Abrams. Abrams, by the way, is in the photo too. He’s the guy with his back to you.
Here’s a closer look at some of the concept art in the background…
I’ve brightened the photo up a bit to give you a clearer view. With that enhancement you can now see that the Millennium Falcon is pictured in one of the photos. The others are harder to make out, but the bottom sort of looks like it involves a long-range desert landscape shot. Tatooine? The top one has four different images and one of them looks an awful lot like Alec Guinness as Obi Wan.
It’s not much, but it’s more Star Wars news than we’ve had before. Why not have fun with it? Tell us what you see in the photos using our comments section below.
