Star Wars: The Force Awakens Concept Art Shows the Death Sta
Artist Doug Chiang recently shared a piece of previously unseen concept art from the archives of Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens.Chiang, who currently serves as the vice president and executive creative director of Lucasfilm, shared the "wild concept" of the semi-destroyed Death Star 2 rising out from the sands of the Jakku desert via his Instagram account on Monday."Deathstar ascending! In the early days of EP7, we explored some wild concepts (before we had a script). This was for a dream sequence of the Deathstar 2 rising out of the desert of Jakku," he wrote in the caption of the highly detailed illustration.
The concept of the gargantuan space station being submersed beneath the surface has been circulating for a number of years, as JJ Abrams once explored the idea of a deep sea Death Star, according to various sketches and renders featured in Phil Szostak's "The Art of The Force Awakens" book.This idea made a further appearance in the teaser for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the upcoming conclusion to the Skywalker saga, as the trailer ended with a shot of what appeared to be the wreckage of the Death Star emerging from the sea, followed by the maniacal cackle of Emperor Palpatine.For more on Episode 9, check out our comprehensive breakdown of every detail in the all-new trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, read up on our theory of how Emperor Palpatine was hiding in Snoke the whole time, and catch up on everything else we know about Episode 9.Adele Ankers is a Freelance Entertainment Journalist.
