According to the Official Site, prequel concept artists Doug Chiang and Iian McCaig have returned to Lucasfilm for work on future STAR WARS films.
Artists Doug Chiang and Iain McCaig, both instrumental in shaping the look of the STAR WARS saga, reunited at the start of this year as part of the team Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy has assembled to create an exciting new future for STAR WARS… Chiang and McCaig join the previously announced team of top filmmaking talent, including J.J. Abrams, Michael Arndt, Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg, who are shaping the future of STAR WARS.
Team? That sounds a lot like what Drew McWeeney was saying in his piece. I wonder who else is on board who hasn’t been “previously announced?”
“It’s wonderful to be back! It’s been over ten years since I last worked on STAR WARS but my STAR WARS roots have touched nearly every film I’ve designed since. It’s still a bit surreal that I get to work on another one.” says Chiang.
Asked about his work on upcoming STAR WARS movies, McCaig smiles. “I never thought I’d live to see this day. It’s pure magic to have the band back together again.”
