Alt + Poster: Ralph McQuarrie’s Concept Poster Art for ‘Star Wars’

Alt + Poster is a (semi) regular feature where we, the SAW staff, share our favorite foreign and alternative movie posters with the Wasteland. 

If you’ve unearthed a foreign or alternative movie poster that you think the rest of the Wasteoids need to see, please send it to us at or on Twitter @SAWasteland.

As far as I can tell, these posters were never used to officially promote the film. They were just concept movie posters. All I really need to know, I can tell from looking at them: they were designed and painted by Ralph McQuarrie, the man largely responsible for the look of Star Wars. And, therefore, are basically masterpieces.
