We’re only a couple episodes into The Mandalorian, but the visuals so far have been on par with what we’ve come to expect from blockbuster movies. That’s partially because the series has an average budget of $12.5 million per episode, but that’s also because the artists working on The Mandalorian have incredible vision when it comes to expanding the world of Star Wars and bringing us firmly into sci-fi western territory. Thankfully, Disney and Lucasfilm have officially released the concept art that can be glimpsed in the credits at the end of each episode. We’ll be updating this post with new concept art from each episode as it becomes available. Read More »

But it seems that Disney is still full steam ahead with Hawkeye, which will follow the everyman Avenger as he takes on a new protegé Kate Bishop, who Steinfeld is in talks to play.
With the launch of Disney+ today, fans got a glimpse at the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a new episode of Expanding The Universe, which gave a preview of several pieces of concept art for Hawkeye.

Concept artist Ralph McQuarrie helped craft the vision for the original Star Wars trilogy with his stunning concept paintings and early sketches. And long after the legendary concept artist’s passing in 2012, McQuarrie continues to influence the look of that galaxy far, far away even today. The Lucasfilm creative team had incorporated parts of McQuarrie’s original unused concept art in films like Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the prequel film Solo: A Star Wars Story, and they again return to McQuarrie’s vision for inspiration with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Ash Ketchum may have taken 22 years to finally become a Pokémon Master, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. Sure, he should have won the Kalos League a few years ago, but bygones. However, if you’re curious about other “what-ifs,” some newly revealed Detective Pikachu concept art gives insight into unused character designs and an awesome Charizard Vs. Gyarados battle that we almost got. See the Detective Pikachu concept art by artist R.J. Palmer below.

In the years following the release of 1999’s groundbreaking The Matrix, dozens of films and TV shows tried to ape the grim, apocalyptic world of the Wachowski’s films. But none could really nail the elaborate, weird, and grotesque designs that was crafted by The Matrix concept artists Geof Darrow and Steve Skroce, who along with Jim Martin, helped create the eye-popping style of the sci-fi franchise. But the big question of the moment is: Can The Matrix 4 recapture what made that world so stunningly realized in the first place? With Darrow and Skroce confirmed to return as the concept artists for The Matrix 4, it certainly looks like it could.

In early January of 2013, a few months after The Walt Disney Company had purchased Lucasfilm, a meeting was called to establish concept art for the film that would become Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This was long before a script was in place, and even a few weeks before J.J. Abrams was officially announced as the film’s director. One of the people present was Doug Chiang, a talented concept artist who now serves as Lucasfilm’s vice president and executive creative director, and you may have seen some of the concept art that was produced in the days after that early meeting.
Today, Chiang has shared a piece of concept art we’ve never seen before – one that involves a Death Star rising out of the sands of Jakku. Check it out below. Read More »

It’s been about a year and a half since Justice League hit theaters, and there are still fans who are clamoring for Zack Snyder‘s original cut of the DC Comics superhero movie that never made it to theaters. In fact, there’s a GoFundMe campaign that raised $20,000 to pay for a small campaign at Comic-Con to promote the mere desire of some fans to see the director’s cut of Justice League.
In the meantime, Zack Snyder continued to add fuel to the fire and keep the social media outlet Vero in business with a Father’s Day post that tantalized fans about what they didn’t see happen in Justice League. The filmmaker posted a piece of concept art with the villain Darkseid laying waste to a planet by enacting the Anti-Life Equation, which is meant to illustrate how hope, love, and freedom are all meaningless. Darkseid uses the mathematical formula and an entire army to spread despair and destruction. Read More »
