Will Drew Struzan return for Episode VII?

Star Wars Special Edition posters by Drew Struzan

In a joint interview with Sam Witwer (on Being Human,) artist Drew Struzan reveals he’s been approached by Disney for new Star Wars art.

…in fact, I got a couple calls already this week on Star Wars from Disney. Oh my god, I’m trying to be retired! You know, I spent 35 years painting Star Wars. [laughs] I painted Star Wars before most of you were born! But I guess there is always a chance. There’s no intention. But I would love to have a day off every now and again, and I have to work a weekend and all through the night. If the opportunity arises, it will be a real temptation.

This certainly isn’t confirmation that he’ll do it, but I can’t imagine Episode VII without at least one Struzan poster.

    I got to hang out with Drew at CIV, he was a really nice gentleman and his wife was great too. I hope he does do at least one poster or treatment, it would be nice especially since McQuarrie is gone.

    It’s already going to be weird enough seeing Star Wars without the Fox Fanfare. Add a lack of Struzan and it becomes all sorts of strange. So yes, here’s hoping he’s back!
