An artist has created a series of posters for the upcoming "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" movie in the style of the iconic poster for "Full Metal Jacket."
The tribute posters are the handiwork of vector artist Orlando Arocena, who released them to the website Poster Posse in celebration of the upcoming release of “Star Wars: Rebels: Season 2” on Blu-ray and DVD, as well as “Rogue One."
At Arocena's official Behance page, he said, "Back in 2015 I was excited to hear the news about a potential 'Star Wars Rogue One' story being developed, and directed by Gareth Edwards. I was very happy to read how the story would be more set within a military, covert ops thematic. A year later and after a few trailers. I’m back to pay tribute with a parody. I decided to pay reverence to one of my favorite wartime movies, Stanley Kubrick’s 'Full Metal Jacket' and the artist who created that films iconic artwork, Philip Castle, by visually combining the intensity and fighting spirit of the Rebellion in a new vector tribute."
Season two of "Star Wars: Rebels" will be released on Blu-Ray/DVD on August 30, 2016. "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" will premiere on December 16, 2016. Check out more on Arocena's creative process at Poster Posse, and sound off on what you think of his rebellious images in the comments.
