Countdown to The Force Awakens: Artists Reimagine Classic Star Wars Posters


By: Haylee Fisher (@haylee_fisher)

It’s finally December, so that means one thing. No, not Christmas. It’s Star Wars month! To celebrate, Fandango asked seven artists to reconceptualize posters for all of the films so far. Chito Arellano created this piece for Star Wars: A New Hope, the one that started it all. He had this to say about why the movie is so special to him:

Star Wars is the first movie I can recall ever seeing. I was only a few years old when I first moved to the United States in 1976. The following year, George Lucas’ Star Wars: A New Hope was released in theaters. My parents took my older brother and I to watch the film. Though I was too young follow the story exactly, I remember a boy got a lightsaber and went on an adventure in space. I went home that night with lightsaber in hand (that my parents bought me) trying re-enact the lightsaber duel with my brother in our apartment living room. Today I still feel the same magic when I rewatch A New Hope for the thousandth time. I’m still that kid with a lightsaber ready to go on an adventure in a galaxy far far away.”
