The mythical Game Boy was the inspiration for a design from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

MOVIE NEWS – Concept artist Matthew Savage tells some of his references for the latest film in the saga.

Matthew Savage, a concept artist with credits in the latest Star Wars films, has commented on networks that, possibly, he was inspired by the Nintendo Game Boy for the design of one of the terminals that we see in Rise of the Skywalker.

Specifically, Savage has shared through his Instagram several images of Babu Frik, a droid reprogrammer that we see in the last film of the saga accompanied by different devices as the protagonist of this same news, with an appearance that, in effect, it may remind us of the mythical Japanese gaming device.

As can be seen in the video attached to the news, the design of Matthew Savage was not a simple proposal and was included in Episode IX. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, let’s remember, premiered in theatres at the end of last year, achieving a gross of over $ 1 billion.

As new movies arrive, Star Wars will receive a new video game from EA in the coming months. This time we talk about Star Wars: Squadrons, a space action title with story mode and multiplayer just introduced.
