‘The Star Wars’ Concept Trailer

Today see’s the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi in cinemas worldwide. But have you ever thought what a trailer could have looked like if Ralph McQuarrie’s original concept art had been followed exactly and brought to life?

The DAVE School have endeavoured to create their own version and it is now available on YouTube.

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away… we might have seen a version of Star Wars that featured a Han Solo with green skin and gills, Stormtroopers with lightsabers, and a female heroine named Luka Starkiller.

Many of these anomalies can be seen in concept artist, Ralph McQuarrie’s early illustrations of the Star Wars universe. While looking back at these early paintings we can’t help but wonder what Star Wars would have been like had it remained loyal to the concept art and early drafts of the script.

The DAVE School graduating class of August and October 2017 have answered that question by bringing Ralph McQuarrie’s paintings to life in a concept trailer for what might have been… The Star Wars. Find out more about our Visual Effects program at daveschool.com

Just think how different our cinematic experience could be if this was the look of the original film? The mind boggles!
