Upcoming Star Wars author Kevin Hearne, who is working on the Luke Skywalker novel which will be the third book in the Empire and Rebellion series, shared a little on Facebook

Today I get to really dive into the Star Wars book. I noodled around a bit last night after I got home, but this morning I’m firing up the soundtrack and I think there will be some unbridled glee. :)

Author Daniel Abraham also chimed in on his Empire and Rebellion novel which will star Han Solo. Continue Reading Around the Web…

Jedi News Interview with Joe Corroney

Continuing their series of interviews with Star Wars Celebration Europe II artists, Jedi News has posted an interview with Joe Corroney.

What was the inspiration behind your Celebration Europe piece?

Joe Corroney: I always wanted to illustrate a Boba Fett and Slave Leia scene. I love coming up with Expanded Universe moments which are not seen in the films. These little stories that could potentially happen I between scenes or from another character’s perspective. It makes drawing Star Wars exciting for me and its a fun challenge to come up with fresh ideas for main characters and a different take on the stories we least know and love so much. I thought this particular scene would work great as my new print for the thirtieth anniversary of Return of the Jedi this year at Star Wars Celebration Europe II.

Jedi News has another Star Wars Celebration Europe artist interview, this time with Spencer Brinkerhoff III.

What was the inspiration behind your Celebration Europe piece?

Spencer Brinkerhoff III: I’ve been approaching the prints as a series, focusing on a specific character and then using one of that character’s famous quotes for the title. The Celebration Europe print is the second in the series focusing on Darth Vader.

Jedi News Interviw with Brian Rood

Jedi News posted a really nice interview with Star Wars artist Brian Rood covering his painting for Star Wars Celebration Europe II.

What was the inspiration behind your Celebration Europe piece?

Brian Rood: I have wanted to do this painting for some time…I like the idea of seeing Boba Fett returning to his childhood home in his adult life. We don’t necessarily know what he is doing here. The viewer is not sure if Boba is coming or going…Is he having a moment of doubt or a moment of personal reflection. I love having artwork that can have dozens of possible stories behind one piece. The idea of portraying the actor Temuera Morrison as Boba is something that I have wanted to do since I first saw Episode II. I saw one of Art Andrews photographs of a crouching Boba Fett and that was the initial spark behind the characters pose and setting of this painting. The initial design was just Fett and his ship. It was fun but putting him in the rain in front of his childhood home, really added a new dimension to the story I was trying to portray.
