The new Star Trek actually has me more excited about what J.J. Abrams could do to make some good Star Wars movies again. More importantly, Disney now technically has the power to remake those terrible, terrible prequels!
With that in mind, I thought I’d share again my old project, Star Wars 1999, which re-imagines a prequel trilogy only using canon material before Lucas’s actual (awful) prequels were made. Also, the visuals are based almost entirely on Ralph McQuarrie’s early and/or discarded designs from the original trilogy.
