People complained about Struzan’s work in here, some will never be satisfied.

Yeah, I don’t understand that either. I have been a fan of struzans work for decades. I have never seen him put out a bad piece. The D23 poster is fantastic, even though it’s only a promo poster.

It’s probably because his style reminds a lot of people of the PT films and the SE, and for those with certain purist tendencies he wasn’t part of the “original poster artists.”
Well, he sort of was, but there’s obviously artists like Tom Jung, Kastel and the Hildebrants that made the most famous OT posters.
Of course Struzan have been making SW posters since 1978, and he made the Revenge of the Jedi poster as well, but his work on the SE and PT posters have become some of the most famous (at least withing the SW franchise).
I guess those who’s old enough to have seen the OT when it was new never really saw his posters at the cinemas, and therefore they just don’t associate his work with the films. His SE and PT poster however was the official artwork and you could’t go anywhere without seeing it.
