Disney+ will also have a Star Wars concept art takeover during the celebration. The concept-art takeovers will cover the franchise’s four decades. This will be the first design refresh for the streaming service since it debuted last year.
This concept art is featured now and it included art from legendary designer and illustrator Ralph McQuarrie and more. Disney+ users can now navigate to a dedicated brand page directly from carousel art. You’ll see art from Jason Palmer, Doug Chiang, Seth Engström, and more.
The concept art takeover on Disney Plus continues on Star Wars Day with each film and series’ artwork updated to feature its original concept paintings from Star Wars: A New Hope to The Mandalorian.
The special artwork will be available for the following titles in the Skywalker saga: A New Hope (1977); The Empire Strikes Back (1980); Return of the Jedi (1983); The Phantom Menace (1999); Attack of the Clones (2002); Revenge of the Sith (2005); The Force Awakens (2015); and The Last Jedi (2017).
In addition, Disney Plus will feature concept art for other Star Wars films and series: Rogue One, Solo, The Mandalorian, Star Wars: The Clone Wars series, Star Wars: Rebels and Star Wars: Resistance.
