While the rest of us were poring over the teaser trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, searching for plot clues and Easter eggs, Phil Noto was busy creating this gorgeous piece of tribute art.
"I couldn't help myself," he tweeted. Elaborating on his blog, he wrote: "I haven’t been this excited since the first teaser for TFA. I desperately wanted to make this right after I saw the trailer but had finish up some Poe Dameron work. It’s all crazy and wonderful."
Of course, Noto knows a thing or two about illustrating the Star Wars universe: In addition to Marvel's new Star Wars: Poe Dameron series, he also drew its Chewbacca miniseries.
