DREW STRUZAN DOCUMENTARY SNEAK PEAK AT “STAR WARS CELEBRATION V” EVENT!!


Producer Charles Ricciardi announces that exclusive scenes from “Drew: The Man Behind The Poster,” a feature-length documentary film highlighting the career of movie poster artist Drew Struzan, who’s most popular works include the “Indiana Jones,” “Back to the Future” and “Star Wars” movie posters, screened at this year's "Star Wars Celebration V" event!

Telling the tale through exclusive interviews with George Lucas, Harrison Ford, Michael J. Fox, Frank Darabont, Guillermo del Toro, Steven Spielberg and many other filmmakers, artists and critics, the journey starts with Drew’s early career in commercial and album cover art (Alice Cooper/Black Sabbath) through his recent retirement as one of the most recognizable and influential movie poster artists of all time. The film is a comprehensive presentation about the artist, the art, the stories behind Drew’s most recognizable creations, as well as a never-before-seen insider’s examination of the industry and the profession of motion picture advertising.


After screening selected highlights from the film in front of a standing room only audience at this year’s Comic Con event in San Diego, the trailer for the film, along with a preview of a scene with Drew Struzan and George Lucas discussing a piece of Drew’s Star Wars artwork, was shown at this year’s “Star Wars Celebration V” event in Florida. That presentation is now exclusively available for viewing on the Official Star Wars website:

Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
I'm behind both of these ideas!
I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
It isn't for me.
