Part one of a tribute to our favorite artist, Ralph McQuarrie.
Did Lucasfilm just give us our first (fuzzy) look at Episode VII concept art? Lucasfilm.com relaunched yesterday, and an eagle-eyed Justin LaSalata noticed that the lead photo on the production page - a meeting featuring Kathleen Kennedy and maybe (far right) John Knoll - shows what’s probably concept art for Episode VII that includes what looks like the Millennium Falcon, a mountainous location, an X-Wing pilot and maybe even an older Luke?
The Falcon appearing is pretty much a given at this point, but this is the first thing we have officially that even hints at it. Of course, it could all be for something else…
"There are radical transformations in a woman during normal pregnancy: how much more intense would it be if her twin embryos were also filled with Force-laden midi-chlorians? Three unused story concepts (from top): Padmé’s waking visions of Mustafar: Padmé's sleepwalking manifestations of the Force: Padmé's agony as her body reacts against the midi-chlorians.” -Iain McCaig [
