Star Wars: Behind The Scenes: Book VI: Movie Posters

The series has reached its end.


1. Introduction

As movie posters are used for advance promotions as well as actual theatrical releases and re-releases, it is not surprising that more posters have been produced for the six Star Wars movies than any other film series.

Most are printed in large quantities, but limited printing and commercial availability have made some posters highly collectible.

Although a number of posters are mere reproductions of photographs, the mahourity are painted works of art. According to the prolific poster artist Drew Struzan, "Photography is a direct reflection of reality. Art is interpretive, therefore it embodies more emotion and feeling. That's why George Lucas usually goes with a painting for his work, because he wants to embody the feeling, or soul, of the movie."
