L’Impero, in Solo: A Star Wars Story, metterà in mostra due veicoli per inediti, anche se uno potrebbe già essere noto ai fan più appassionati di conoscere le origini della Saga.
In quest’ultimo caso parliamo dell’Arrestor Cruiser, che si rifà ad un concept di Colin Cantwell per l’apertura di Una Nuova Speranza, e la cui presenza nella pellicola ci viene confermata da una Hot Wheels. Per gli interessati, qualche parola a riguardo da parte dell’autore:

The creation of the #Stardestroyer – I asked George about the scenes. We had a few words in which he described the scenes. I then asked "Is it bigger than Burbank?" to determine the size of the Imperial Cruiser and the opening scenes of the movie. The hatch concept was developed in terms of the need of actual scenes later in the movie. In the opeing I was describing something WWII-ish of a concept with a gunner in the fuscelage. The ship was designed with a lot of thought on what the viewer would experience related to the massiveness of the ship. This involved thinking of things and creating relationships between all of the ships and their interactions with each other. George and I also discussed several other topics in which I asked qualifying questions. This gave me enough information to start designing the ships. It also gave him the information to continue with his work. I was separate from George for most of that time and worked on the final products alone. I started by creating what had to be in the middle and things were added on and so forth. I basically designed this ship and other ships around the function and the impact of the ship on the viewer. The sequence of function and the emotion and it had to feel like it was already there. When starting on a ship, I never did know what it would look like by the end. PS – those fighters in the concept illustration were the original imperial attack ships. I didn't create the #TIE until much later. See the other concepts at www.cantwellcollection.com
In quest’altra immagine possiamo invece, più che altro, conoscere il nome di questo veicolo, già intravisto nel teaser trailer di un paio di settimane fa:
Vedremo che ruolo avranno in Solo: A Star Wars Story, il prossimo Maggio nei cinema, ma siamo sicuramente favorevoli al vedere ancora riconosciuto lo straordinario lavoro degli artisti che hanno aiutato George Lucas a fare grande Star Wars.
