According to Omega Underground, Lucasfilm has hired Paul Inglis, the visionary mind behind Skyfall, Game of Thrones, Prometheus, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Children of Men, and Blade Runner 2049, as the art director for Episode IX, which means that whatever happens in the movie, it sure will be easy on the eyes. J.J. Abrams revealed this week that they’d start shooting Episode IX sometime this summer.
His previous credits include Skyfall, Blade Runner 2049, Game of Thrones, Prometheus, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, and Children of Men.
Paul and his team of Lucasfilm artists, Abrams, and the production designer will come together to craft the overall look of the film. You can imagine after working on a labor-intensive production like Game of Thrones, Paul will bring something special to the table. Here is Paul speaking about his work on Thrones along with examples of the projects he’s previously worked on.

It could also suggest a possible return to Vader’s Castle on Mustafar.
Inglis has also worked with creature effects lead Neal Scanlan on Prometheus. He isn’t the only Blade Runner alumni working on the film either as Episode IX’s costume designer Michael Kaplan worked on the original 1982 film.
