    The Star Wars Celebration Chicago mural that Lucasfilm has been hyping up has been recorded on footage by a fan! Well, most of it, anyway. The Star Wars Episode IX portion of the thirteen-piece mural will remain hidden until the reveal, but until it's shown, fans can get a preview of the impressive piece that details the Skywalker Saga (and a few other things) in full length.





    Not that long ago, Lucasfilm announced that Star Wars Celebration Chicago would have a stunning banner showing the entire story thus far, with murals in tribute to each of the main works in the series. The announcement stated that this mural would feature content from all nine films in the Skywalker Saga (The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, and the still-to-be-named Episode IX) and two animated series (The Clone Wars and Rebels). A portion featuring the original trilogy section of the piece, was shared online, and you can see it above.



    As it turns out, a fan has managed to snag footage of the mural as the event is now officially public, and it looks like Rogue One and Solo will also be receiving love on the massive piece:

    Below are more detailed shots of a few sections: The Clone WarsRebels, and the portion of the sequel trilogy that isn't covered up:

    I'm guessing that the tarp on this won't be lifted until after the trailer drops at the end of the Episode IX panel. It'll only be two days from now, so we shouldn't have long to wait!



    Star Wars Celebration Chicago begins tomorrow. We'll be sure to have you covered at Star Wars News Net - your Force for news.

    Man, that photo-real Rebels cast is . . . unnerving. Cool, but strange. Is it me or does Thrawn look like Pierce Brosnan?

    Seeing a "live action" take on Aksoka is so awesome. She looks beyond amazing and I won't this as a poster right now. My God I love celebration.

    Great mural!
    The Rebels part is weird. Like I like Ezra and Sabine in that artwork (Ezra looking cooler than the show ever made him), but Kanan and - as many pointed out - Thrawn seem a tad off.

    The rest looks amazing, AND GUESS WHO'S HOLDING THE "HERO'S" LIGHTSABER IN THE TFA PART?!? MY BOY FINN. STANDING PARALLEL TO KYLO LIKE HE ALWAYS SHOULD HAVE BEEN. BOOM.

    Seriously though, the whole thing is beautiful, but man that Clone Wars section is probably my favorite part; I’d love to have that as my phone background or something! I’m also dying to see the Episode 9 section! We’ll see if anyone is brave and/or insane enough to take the tarp down. :eek:

    5BD720D8-6092-4FFA-9682-27ADDA4BF9E3.gif If they sell smaller copies of these I definitely am going to buy one - it’s absolutely gorgeous! Am so glad they’ve included clone wars and rebels too and the standalone film characters . It’s wonderful! :)

    There is still nothing on the official SW instragram, I hope they'll release one day the full banner in jpg format or whatsoever...

    Okay, but what are the actual odds nobody just lifts the curtain and snaps a photo before tomorrow?

    EDIT: Nvm, I see they are raising it up where people can't reach. Smort.

    I guess there is a whole army made of the best stormtroopers legions standing all around, off camera, and the first one who approaches the curtain less than 1 parsec will be permanently deleted. :eek::D

    Well, as I try to dive into that mural, especially with the video posted here by SWNN, I suddenly realize Snoke and Hux are not part of the fresco, while we strangely get Rose and Phasma...
    Is that a big oblivion ?

    Wow, you're right, not even in a very very small size.
    Maybe an insinuation for what's under the black part from 9?

    Maybe JJ surprises us and puts Snoke in 9 in the middle of everything. Don't know how, but could be.

    I must admit I thought the same, but.... still why?

    Same way as Luke : Kylo sliced a Force projection. The real Snoke is still laughing out loud.

    Given the size of the Ep IX hidden panel, I am guessing that it is just going to be a title.
