Star Wars 7 - We're Back by Robert-Shane Star Wars 7 - We're Back by Robert-Shane
As a long-time fan of Star Wars I was overjoyed to hear that there are finally plans for more feature films now that George Lucas has sold the franchise to Disney. I know not everyone agrees – but I’ve been waiting for this since 1983 and I think it’s great news!

The momentous event prompted me to dust off my digital pen and draw this picture to show how I imagine the lead characters might look now. I have no idea if the plan is to use the same actors in the new movie – although I really hope they do.

I also gave them new costumes – nothing radical – just variations on what we saw them wear in the original trilogy. I’d love to design new characters and costumes for the new movies – but for this piece the main thing was to get the actors’ likenesses right and I’m pleased with the result.

This is an original depiction of George Lucas’s / Disney’s copyright characters – intended solely to show my artistic ability. I’m not a professional – this is fan art – and none of my work is for sale or available for reproduction.

Love it. If you look at recent pictures of Mark Hamill you can see his beard is almost exactly like that but is isn't as white as your picture. He still has a bit of colour left. 
But why isn't Leia wearing her jedi robes?

And according to the new rumours, Chewbacca is going to have a robotic arm. I was hoping to for him to have one robot leg instead since there are so many characters missing a hand/arm already in the movies.

:lol: if he does - I'd be interested to see if he looks anything like how I've drawn him. Let's hope we find out in Episode 7!

could this picture be any more awesome. Only way really is if this is how they would look in the new movies. If they use the original characters. I hope the next three movies are either about Grand Admiral thrawn which would make sense, Or the Yuuzhan Vong

Thank you very much (and sorry for taking so long to so say). I think I read somewhere that they don't intend to use Thrawn - which may or may not be true. It would be a shame if they don't (even if he wasn't the main character) - he's such an integral part of the Expanded Universe and it was the 'Thrawn trilogy' that helped reignite interest in the saga back in the '90s.

I made Luke look (a little) like Ben Kenobi intentionally... I thought he might try to model himself after the old man who introduced him to the Force and the Jedi. I guess we'll have to wait and see in Episode 7 if I guessed right! :)

Thank you very much for saying so. That was my only goal - to create some original art of the old familiar characters - as I expected it was what everyone was wondering in the days after the news of Star Wars 7 was announced.

Words cannot describe how big my smile was upon seeing this picture; many people don't want to see their childhood heroes and heroines growing older, but for me, there's something magical about revisiting them down the road decades later, and see them still in great spirits, no matter what time has done to their bodies. Seeing Luke, Han, Leia, Lando, and Chewie here, even if it's just in a painting, is wonderful. Thank you so much for doing this!

Very sorry for the slow reply - I somehow missed this comment. But just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to tell me how much you enjoyed seeing this. I was incredibly pleased at the news that there will be new films - so quickly drew this as it made me want to imagine how these old friends, who've been away for so long, might look now. I hope they do all come back - and I hope that time has treated them well and we get to see them all smiling again! :)

Wonder who the new villan is.. Probably Grand Admiarl Thrawn.

I think that they've now confirmed that Thrawn won't be in the movies. Shame really - the books with him in were great. But I can understand if they want to create someone, or something, new that we don't already know.

Old man Luke is actually a way cooler prospect than I had originaly thought! Well done!

Thanks. I was surprised when I drew this how much the 'old man' look suited Luke. I tried to make him look a bit like Alec Guinness's Obi-Wan as I figure that's who he'd model himself after... if he hasn't turned the dark side in his old age!?

Thanks. It's strange to me - but he does seem to get left out a lot. If any of these characters do make a return - I hope he's with them. It would be nice to find out if he fully redeemed himself or if he ever reverted to his 'scoundrel' ways.
