Award-winning visual effects company Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) has updated their official site with concept art that their talented team of artists created for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
"Each artist began to explore his individual response, and collectively, we began to answer, with our words and art," wrote Rick Carter, co-production designer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. "Out of our brainstorming sessions emerged visual imagery of where we might want to go and what it would look like when we got there. We were not merely illustrating scenes that already existed: we were initiating storytelling concepts through the visual images themselves."
Check out the artwork in our gallery at the bottom of the page.
In this thrilling continuation of the epic space opera, ex-stormtrooper Finn, scrappy desert dweller Rey, and droid companion BB-8 get caught up in a galactic war when they come across a map containing the whereabouts of the vanished Luke Skywalker. They soon embark on an epic adventure that brings them face-to-face with heroes from the past, as well as new villains such as Kylo Ren and the First Order, a fascist regime that has emerged from the ashes of the old Empire.
The Force Awakens on Digital HD on April 1st before coming to Blu-Ray on April 5th.
