Poster artist Drew Struzan has gained a large fan base for his high-quality one-sheet work throughout the years, although he is now technically retired. Today, we have word that the artist has been approached by Walt Disney Pictures to possibly create new poster artwork for Star Wars: Episode VII. Here's what the artist had to say.

"Oh, well, never say never, [laughs] because...in fact, I got a couple calls already this week on Star Wars from Disney. Oh my god, I'm trying to be retired! You know, I spent 35 years painting Star Wars. [laughs] I painted Star Wars before most of you were born! But I guess there is always a chance. There's no intention. But I would love to have a day off every now and again, and I have to work a weekend and all through the night. If the opportunity arises, it will be a real temptation. »
