Frank's Star Wars DVD/BD Covers

Author

 (Edited)

So since a few other cover designers have their own threads, I decided I should make mine to prevent clutter in the main thread. All these designs are presented in order of release, and I will add new ones here as I create them.

Warning: These covers are not to be redistributed without my prior consent. Also, please do not create sets for sale using my designs. Because if I find out, I’ll have to file a lawsuit against you, and I don’t know how that’s going to work!

1992 UK VHS Blu-rays


Originally tailored for the Despecialized Editions. Supplanted by the later DVD iterations below - but still available here.

Arrow “White Box” Blu-rays - The Despecialized Editions


The first versions of covers made with the idea of blending the Star Wars Trilogy with other cult films of the Arrow ilk. Note: The subtitle has since been changed to “Original Theatrical Version Reconstruction”. Available here.

Revisited 2000 VHS DVDs


I’m not entirely sure that the information I’ve given the prequel covers would be relevant, given they’ll get a complete overhaul. 2 and 5 come in both black and white flavours, so you can have a chequered set or a half-and-half set. Available here.

Definitive Collection Combo DVDs


A combination of both the LaserDisc and Executor VHS Definitive Collections. Available here.

Arrow “White Box” Blu-rays - Double Pack


When the Respecialized Edition came out, a double pack of the two Harmy reconstructions was invariable. An additional cover was made for ESB, but Adywan’s 14GB 97SE MKV rendered it redundant. The first is still available on request.

1994 UK VHS Blu-rays


I know Moth3r did them before, but I couldn’t resist… anyway, I wanted to see if I could based on the limited resources I have! May possibly revisit later to convert to Criterion/PS4 size. Available here.

1992 UK VHS DVDs


A significant improvement over the original BD versions, notably replicating the colour schemes of the original VHS covers. Available here.

Arrow “White Box” Blu-rays - Slipcover


A largely experimental prototype of a potential slipcover. Ran into a number of problems making it - for starters, I wasted paper trying to line up the double-sided cover correctly. I also tried using photo paper for the slipcover itself, but it’s a little… sticky. Somehow though, it worked. Unfortunately, this cover is not available at this time.

Angel Blu-ray Prototype


Experimenting with the teal/orange colouration that Angel’s edit is noted for. Unavailable at this time.

Trek Wars Remastered/Revisited DVDs


These follow in the vein of the Star Trek Remastered DVDs. Unfinished; will later be supplanted by Blu-ray versions.

Arrow “White Box” Blu-rays - Reversible sleeve


A box for the entire trilogy. Available here with options for extras from ronwlim, phildesfr’s BD-ROMs or njvc’s BDs.

Arrow “Full Size” AVCHDs


Produced as a tideover until ROTJ 2.0. The discs are all Tom Jung poster art. This cover comes in Criterion/PS4 size to differentiate it from the BDs. Available on request.

Criterion Collection


Something I made while I was in a sort of phase of making Criterion covers. Unavailable at this time.

Team Negative1 Silver Screen Experience


In commemoration of Team Negative-1’s release. Available here. A reissue is anticipated with further details on whatever the BD ISO contains.

Worst May the 4th EVER.

Team Negative1 Silver Screen Experience v2


This version reverses the ratings logos to better fit with other Blu-ray covers. By request, there is also a variant with US/Canadian ratings, as seen above. Both variants have a new minimalistic disc label. Available here.

Though not quite within the criteria of DVD or BD, these are also added for completion.

Revisited Jewel Case


Initially produced as an experimentation with the jewel case format, these are designed around the 2000 VCD covers. The back details for ESB and ROTJ may prove incorrect.

Magnetic Video Sleeve


A hypothetical replica of what the cover for the Magnetic release of Star Wars would’ve looked like had they been granted the rights to it before 1982. Hey… without Magnetic, we wouldn’t have home video.

Super 8 Jewel Case


Based on the original F48 Ken Films box. It also experiments with the way some VCD covers use the back of the case as the front of the cover (like the San Andreas one, for example), which is actually rather nifty.

Worst May the 4th EVER.

Do you have the Executor box cover art? I’ve been looking for it everywhere.

And in the time of greatest despair, there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as the Son of the Suns.

Presumably you’re referring to the Definitive Collection Combo? That’s already linked.

A box for the entire trilogy. Unfinished - anticipated release around the time of ROTJ 2.0; it’s likely that I’ll be using phildesfr’s ISOs for feature reference.

Beautiful mate - looking forward to getting hold of these to use as covers for my Harmy set 😃

Many thanks - and keep up the great work!

Team Negative1 Silver Screen Edition v3


I decided to change the “Experience” to “Edition”, since that’s what it says on the actual material, and I didn’t want people to get too confused. …not that that’s been an issue, in any case. Available here.

Hello guys,
Hello FrankT,

I’d be interested in the double-feature cover including the Respecialized edition. You mentioned that it is “available on request”. It would be great if you could somehow provide it, it looks awesome.

Thanks and regards

1982 TCF Video Criterion/PS4


The '82 VHS, Beta and Laserdiscs were all used as reference. The idea is that this being a rental disc, it’s differentiated by their larger cases. Comes complete with the misprint on the back, “Captain Hans Solo”! Available here. Disc Label

Sorry, the spacing on the front of my last cover made the names look like a single word. I’ve fixed that now.

UPDATE: The disc label has also received an update, mainly to cover sizing and clipping issues.

Hey Frank. Just wondering if you’ll have the trilogy reversible cover done by sunday, when Harmy released ROTJ v2.5?

Thanks in advance.

I like your cover. Ivemade some of my own, but Id like to use yours as well. Quick question though, maybe Im an idiot, but is it supposed to say “fully resorted” on the front? Or is it supposed to be “restored?”
