New Star Wars Pilot

"Boston’s Pilot Studio brings Star Wars to toy store shelves" by Jon Christian  09/14/2015

When Bill Concannon saw the original “Star Wars” in 1977, he was entranced. “Being 13, seeing that in the theater, that was life changing,” said Concannon, now age 52, of the film’s special effects. “Nothing had been even remotely that good looking.”

He certainly never anticipated that he’d one day be responsible for designing much of the public face of the “Star Wars” franchise. But Pilot Studio has subsequently swelled to 21 employees and worked on projects as high profile as “Wall-E,” “Jurassic World,” “The Dark Knight,” and “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” — as well as for non-Hollywood brands including World Wrestling Entertainment and Boston Beer Co., the brewery that produces Sam Adams.

You can't bring that in the theater, can you?


I'm just not as fired up over the new saga.
