Star Wars Episode VII Teaser by themadbutcher Star Wars Episode VII Teaser by themadbutcher
When I heard the news that a new Star Wars movie was in production, I knew I had to create a poster, despite never having seen the original trilogy (blasphemy, I know...)

Then last week, a rumor started (that turned out to be false) saying that Zack Snyder was planning a standalone movie inspired by Kurosawa's "Seven Samurai". That's when I decided on the simple concept of a lone Jedi standing in a field under the starry sky of a galaxy far, far away.

I admittedly like this more than the final single sheet art.

Outstanding. I wouldn't let CochiseMFC butcher your work though.

Still probably going to be better than anything Abrams will come up with.

Legend speaks of one created by the Force itself, one who would balance the Light and Dark side and unify all things.

The Jedi believed that Anakin Skywalker was the fulfilment of that prophercy...

They were wrong.

But two generations later, in the face of a war against an evil far more terrible than the most horrible creation of the Dark Side, the last of a legendary line must do what no one else before them has done...

And find the Chosen One

Walt Disney Pictures presents, in association with Lucasfilm...

A J. J. Abrams Film...

Kind of ironic that you used that lens flair on the lightsaber considering JJ Abrams is directing. :D
Eledith Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013
Awesome and unique, nothing to add. Respects from Germany!

this page used this poster
frostdusk Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013
I doubt it's with your consent. If it is though disregard this but your amazing poster is being used by others online. Just thought you should know, BTW, love your work.

I love the composition of everything, it seems so authentic; when I first saw this on Facebook I thought it was an official poster. Very nice!
rsand21266 Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013
Simply beautiful. I get misty eyed just looking at it.
Oj4breakfast Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
The Mad Butcher strikes again! I've been seeing this on facebook lately! Great job!
quisatzh Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013
Oh nice... It's like you already knew JJ Abrams was directing it :P
zan67 Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013
Oh my god this looks so real and epic! If I had seen this on or on Facebook, I would have thought it was the real thing! VERY nicely done!
DarthBotto Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013  Professional General Artist
This is stunning. Absolutely stunning!
akomei Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013
Lightsaber needs to be longer, and you forgot "A long time ago..."

Wait, you HAVEN'T seen the original trilogy??

Not sure the validity of this so-called 'fan' poster then...?
themadbutcher Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013
The lightsaber is the same length as the source photo.

I consciously chose to omit the "A long time ago" for the tagline.

I never used the word "fan" anywhere in the description. I just like to create posters when I have a concept in mind.
akomei Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013
My apologies, was linked here from another source which labeled it "fan-made".

The poster definitely looks well executed, and your source photo might be the same, but what matters most is proportions.

If you watch the films (and you really should!) lightsaber blade length is generally around 3-4 adult heads long (give or take a little due to "movie magic"). In your image the blade is only about 2 heads long.

For future reference, here is a promo still for Episode III: [link]

And a screeshot from Episode VI: [link]

Those were as close as I could get for reference without perspective involved so it should be showing the closest to an orthographic view.
themadbutcher Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013
You're right, I can see the lightsaber length is a bit off. Now that you've mentioned it, it's the only thing I see on my poster haha! I might edit it.

Also, searching for Star Wars pics put me in the mood to watch the movies. I'm going to bite the bullet and rent the Special Edition Blu-rays this weekend and finally watch them! I'm pretty confident Disney will release the original trilogy untouched, but meh, why wait until 2015...

Man, I don't care if Disney is making the movies! Disney can make great action adventures! just look at Pirates of the Caribbean!
fantastic poster too! it's perfect
AiurWarrior1 Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013
I love it. I might have to go get this printed on poster stock so I can put it on my wall.
Jcldrndz07 Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013
Damn! Great job you did there! And the lens flare fits perfectly now that J.J. is directing.
RS--Photography Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013  Professional
That's no moon, it's a lens flare!
DComp Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Do you realize how relevant this poster is now? JJ Abrams was just confirmed to be directing today and you already had the lens flare coming off the lightsaber and you made this before he was announced. Amazing and professional job as always.
themadbutcher Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013
Haha yes, that was quite the perfect timing! My viewcount exploded yesterday.
Mithgariel Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Wonderful. Proud to be a part of the poster :)
SweeneyFan Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013
Beautiful! Let's hope this can redeem the series!

This is the best fan poster there is for this new episode.
