This Day in Death

03.04.12: Ralph McQuarrie (‘Star Wars’ designer) – DEAD!

I have… literally no idea what I’m looking at.


Ralph McQuarrie, the designer largely responsible for creating many of the classic visual elements of the Star Wars universe, has died at the age of 82. If you want to know the truth I’ve never seen any of the Star Wars movies and therefore can’t really come at this from a very fair perspective. Sorry, but growing up the rental selection at my house skewed pretty hard towards direct-to-VHS movies about evil leprechauns and sexy frat parties where anything goes. Hearing that the guy who gave Darth Vader an asthma inhaler is dead doesn’t stir a lot of memories for me. But if the sound designer for Puppet Master 5: The Final Chapter croaks anytime soon I’ve already got the obituary on standby.
