The Cheesy Art of Skywalker Ranch

Illustration for article titled The Cheesy Art of Skywalker Ranch

Click to viewSome of the most magnificently cheesy Star Wars art I have ever seen is hanging on the walls at Big Rock Ranch, the building on Skywalker Ranch where Lucas Animation is housed. Earlier this week, while I was waiting to interview Clone Wars director Dave Filoni (more on that tomorrow), I was set free to wander the halls of Big Rock Ranch with my camera. I wasn't surprised by all the gorgeous original film posters from classic Westerns, old Hollywood, and Samurai movies. But I was a little startled by the airbrushed Leia in front of a purple background with lightning; and there was a pencil drawing of Anakin that I could swear Lucas must have bought from a fan site (maybe he did?). Check out these cheesy finds from the Lucas Collection.

I thought I had seen it all. Star Wars on Black Velvet.

Tatoonie in the middle of a dry spell

Senator Organia in the Corvette up high

Luke's whining 'bout Uncle Owen's harvest

The suns are settin' like Death Stars in the sky

The boy could fly, knew how to move, everything

Always wanting more, he'd be imortalized on

Chorus:

Black velvet and that Lucas guy's style

Black velvet through that mysterious Force guile

A new religion that'll bring ya to your knees

Black velvet if you please

Up in Mos Eisley the music's like a heatwave

White lightening, bound to drive you wild

Rosemary's Baby in the heart of every smuggler

Sy Snoodles leaves 'em cryin' in the aisle

The way he moved, it was a sin, so sweet and true

Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for

chorus

Every vwing of every saber that he swung was for you

In a flash he was gone, it happened so soon, what could

you do?
