Interview Siegfried Groß
"Star Wars"

Interview from 3rd October 2019

Revenge of the Jedi Concept Sketch

Here is a side by side concept sketch drawing by Thomas Jung for the Revenge of the Jedi film. Always interesting to see initial ideas for an upcoming film.

An interview with Tom Beauvais (Film On Paper)

This is such a wonderful interview from 2013, by Eddie Shannon of Film On Paper, that I wanted to again re-post it for collectors to have the chance to learn more about artist Tom Beauvais. And of course for us here at the archive, to see the previously unseen British Quad concept for Star Wars. For the interview - follow this link: Interview

Empire Strikes Back '79 poster concept

Another Empire Strikes Back unattributed poster concept. Includes Luke, Leia, and Han in a upwards forward motion with lightsaber drawn, battling with Vader, stormtroopers, and Bespin in the background. Supporting cast members along with Lando looking like a "Count" in a circle bubble are on the right side of the poster. It has "The war isn't over..." at the top and the logo and credits at the bottom. Interesting Note* - A thumbnail of this poster sketch showed up on a modern day Star Wars collage checklist print circa 2005.
