Disney Plus Celebrates Star Wars Day with Concept Art Take Over

    From Ralph McQuarrie to Doug Chiang and beyond the concept art of Star Wars can be just as iconic as the final designs that ended up on screen. That's why Disney are celebrating the first Star Wars Day since the launch of Disney+ with a concept art takeover, replacing their standard banner and film artwork with concept art drawn from every era of our favorite saga.

    In a press release Michael Paull, President of Disney Streaming Services, said:


    Starting today the Disney+ homepage carousel will feature the iconic artwork of Ralph McQuarrie and for the first time the carousel link will take fans to the Star Wars brand page instead of directly to an individual film or series. On the Star Wars brand page fans will be greeted by the gorgeous artwork of Jason Palmer taken from his mural depicting the full Star Wars saga which was revealed at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago last year.

    Then, on Star Wars Day, the concept art take over continues as each individual  film and series' artwork will be updated to feature original concept paintings from its production. This includes all of the Skywalker Saga films from A New Hope to The Last Jedi, both Star Wars Story films Rogue One and Solo, along with TV series The Clone WarsRebelsResistance, and The Mandalorian.

    Of course the concept art take over isn't the only event Disney+ have planned for Star Wars Day. As we've reported, May the 4th will also see The Rise of Skywalker arrive on the streaming platform, the premiere of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, and the series finale of The Clone Wars. For fans in the UK, and presumably across Europe, May the 4th will also see the first season of Resistance arrive as well. Most fans may be in lock down but at least Disney+ is making sure we have plenty of content to enjoy as we celebrate Star Wars Day!
