So you’ve probably already seen the photos circulating around the myriad of Geek sites out there. If not, here are a few at News-A-Rama. This one spoke volumes to me. This is right out of the Empire Strikes Back Sketch book from 1980. There are so many awesome and unused designs from that book that could show up in the new show and that excites me. It even appears that Ralph McQuarrie’s original concept for Chewbacca will be used as another alien race.
The fact that they are pulling from three sources for design inspiration is awesome and I, for one, cannot wait until this Summer when the show premieres.
