The Force is Strong With These Star Wars Artists On Etsy

By Chris Mullen, March 19, 2014

Intriguing news recently emerged concerning the upcoming Star Wars VII film. Lucasfilms, a Disney owned company, released a statement indicating¬†a “trio of new young leads along with some very familiar faces” would participate in the next trilogy. It has also been reported that director JJ Abrams allegedly expanded the roles of the original characters (Luke, Leia, Solo) than initially written. This is not surprising since shortly before Disney acquired the franchise, George Lucas himself indicated that contracts were close to being signed by actors Mark Hamill, Carrie Fischer and Harrison Ford.

Admittedly, I am skeptical of the next trilogy due to the colossal failure of the last movie debacle. Yet Star Wars is difficult for me to dismiss entirely due to the impact it had on my childhood. What a great time to observe Star Wars by showcasing amazing poster art by fans! After hours of research, I was amazed at the numerous Star Wars art discovered through Etsy.

I’m not sure I would consider this next Star Wars trilogy print set as posters, but they are certainly frame-ready since they are each 8.5×11. The artist, a naturalist, does indicate that additional sizes are available.
