Oscars 2013: Ralph McQuarrie Remembered

The Academy Awards may not have brought too many Oscars home for the Lucasfilm, Industrial Light and Magic and Skywalker Sound crowd but one very special moment would have meant just as much to any true fan of the saga.

As Hollywood noted those who have passed this year, our greatly missed creator Ralph McQuarrie was remembered with this wonderful image.

As our own galaxy was diminished by his passing it was good to see the wider film industry honour him in this manner and proving once again that Ralph, we’ll never forget you.
