The Art of Ralph McQuarrie at Celebration V

We're one month away, and while we can't yet divulge everything we have planned, here are the first few teasers!

We will be offering a limited number of signed 8x10 photographs of Ralph that have never been offered before, including one from his days working at REEL 3 animating the Apollo missions, to a rare shot in costume as General McQuarrie in The Empire Strikes Back.

At the last several Star Wars Celebrations, we gave away a series of bookmarks on each day of the show. For Celebration V, we've made up a set of 9 collectible trading cards. Each card has an image of Ralph on the front (working behind the scenes painting backgrounds or mattes, sketching thumbnails, and in costume as General McQuarrie), and the backs form a puzzle. If you collect all nine, you'll be able to recreate Ralph's iconic painting of Yoda that was used as a fan club sticker in the early 80s.

Details on how you can get your set are coming soon, along with several other exciting announcements! You can keep up with the latest updates by following us on our Facebook page.

We look forward to seeing old friends and new faces in Orlando next month!
