Perhaps the best part of Star Wars is the influence of the various creative genius’ who created it. Concept artist Ralph McQuarrie was the visual driver for the films and all subsequent Star Wars creations.
We lost McQuarrie in 2012. Below is a great documentary that Lucasfilm made honoring Ralph’s impact on Star Wars and the people that make it. As we embark on a new set of (Disney-owned) Star Wars adventures, it’s a great opportunity to reflect on Ralph’s influence.
