Imagine being tasked to make a Star Wars poster. How do you take everything you love about even one of the movies and boil it down to a single image? It’s possible, we’ve seen it, but one thing we rarely see is all three movies summed up on one poster. How would that even be possible?
Well, you see how it’s possible above. We’re happy to exclusively debut the latest poster from Acme Archives and Bottleneck Gallery, the Star Wars Trilogy by the artist Gabz. And there’s good news. The officially-licensed poster has both a limited edition variant for super-collectors as well as a timed edition for everyone else who just wants to own that beautiful piece of work.
Both the 7-color regular (seen above) and 6-color variant (seen below) 36 x 24 inch screenprints will go on sale at noon EST Thursday November 5 at bottleneckgallery.com. The variant is an edition of 225 but they’ll print as many regulars as people order through the weekend, ending at 11:59pm EST November 8. Regular costs $50, variant $65.
“I have always been a huge Star Wars fan and I cannot even describe how profoundly thrilled and honored I was when I was given the opportunity to work on the original Star Wars trilogy,” said Gabz. “Although at first I planned on doing something clean, iconic and centered primarily around Luke Skywalker, in the end I decided to try to capture the most of Star Wars plot with very carefully picked characters and essential scenes from all 3 episodes. I would not like to reveal all the details so that the fans could discover all the hidden clues themselves. Thus, I will just say that I started building the composition around the Dark Side represented by Darth Vader and his conflict between the soon-to-become-a-Jedi-Knight, Luke Skywalker.”
“There are many amazing Star Wars prints out there, but I do not think I have ever seen anybody trying to do the original trilogy on one canvas before. I do hope that the fans will enjoy the final result as much as I do.”
I think it’s safe to say we do.
