Starting today, the Disney+ homepage carousel will feature Star Wars concept art from the legendary Ralph McQuarrie from his 1975 painting of the droids in the desert. For the first time, fans will be able to navigate to a dedicated brand page directly from carousel art. Once immersed in the Star Wars brand page fans will be treated to an adaption of character art from the Star Wars Celebration 2019 commemorative mural by Jason Palmer and other celebrated artists.
The concept art takeover continues on May the 4th with each film and series’ artwork updated to feature its original concept paintings. Click through for more details and a sneak peek at some of the other Concept Art!
The unique brand-centric architecture of Disney+ gives us the opportunity to get creative with how we showcase and engage fans around the content. As part of the “May the 4th” celebration we partnered with the teams at Lucasfilm to honor the artistry of Star Wars and bring their vision to life on Disney+ by showcasing the incredible concept art from over four decades of the beloved saga.
