Star Wars DVD Covers — Page 183

Finished up a new set of UK 2011 style blu-ray labels for anyone interested. Had to make do with Last Jedi just because finding a poster to properly match the rest of the set has been difficult (I definitely wanted something hand-drawn rather than photocollage-y, and the White/Red art I could find was giving me trouble)

Have you considered using the Struzan D23 poster for TFA?

Exactly! Though I’d probably rotate it to be properly vertical, even though I know the poster is at a canted angle like that.

Never really been a fan of these covers - yet for anyone that is…

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?
And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Here’s a blu-ray disc label I put together for my edit of The Last Jedi using a couple promo posters:

Well, it took about a hundred years, but here it is. My 1992 VHS esque DVD cover for The Last Jedi. Now I need about a week of sleep.

Last Jedi

"The other versions will disappear. Even the 35 million tapes of Star Wars out there won’t last more than 30 or 40 years. A hundred years from now, the only version of the movie that anyone will remember will be the DVD version [of the Special Edition], and you’ll be able to project it on a 20’ by 40’ screen with perfect quality. I think it’s the director’s prerogative, not the studio’s to go back and reinvent a movie." - George Lucas

^I took this Hugh Fleming poster, and edited it to look like one of the 80s posters.

that is indeed an awesome cover , I loved the Hugh Fleming poster when I first saw it , it is a great composition , but the colors you used look far more natural and your cover is a great throwback to the original Empire Strikes Back theatrical poster and vhs . I would hang that on my wall for sure !

Thanks, I really wanted it to have the look of the classic posters. Force Awakens and Rogue One got a lot of neat throwback style posters, but everything for Last Jedi was like gritty modern war picture posters. Fleming was the only one that gave it a proper classic style, but it clashed with the set. It’s also neat that every cover of my set is a poster from a different artist.

Well, I guess the cover bug bit me again.

Ooh, I like them! And I dig the poster art for TLJ you went with.

^Thanks, I had to really modify it to make it fit the style of the classic OT posters. I really wish The Prequels had more retro art, and I’d give them the 90s CBS VHS treatment as well, but sadly they don’t. I love Struzan’s work, but I was never as crazy about his Star Wars posters individually. I’m even playing with the idea of covers for Solo and Rogue One, as they both have fairly retro looking posters.

About 2 1/2 years ago I made some covers for the German G’Kar SE DVDs. I completely recreated the german VHS covers in HiRes:

Hey. What was in the first link? It doesn’t work anymore. And could someone make such '97 SE Covers in English and Hungarian or neutral without any text on it, so I could place my onw text on it?

Well, it took a long time, but I’m happy with the work. I’m still planning Rogue One and Solo cases if I can get the art the way I like it first. Enjoy!!
