COLIN CANTWELL’ S AMAZING CAREER
Death Star Creator, Colin Cantwell, has been under the radar for much of his recent life until now. During his amazing career, he worked with George Lucas on designing the X-Wing, TIE Fighter, Y-Wing, Death Star, Millennium Falcon, and Star Destroyer for the very first “Star Wars” movie. In addition, he collaborated with Stanley Kubrick on “2001 a Space Odyssey” (in which he was responsible for suggesting the theme song, “Also sprach Zarathustra“), and he worked with Steven Spielberg on “Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” Other projects included “War Games”, “Buck Rogers”, “Mars, the Search Begins”, “Around the World in 80 Days” and more.
On this site you can find prints and other products showing the original concept drawings that Colin presented to George Lucas before Colin was hired to design the ships for the first Star Wars film.
