“I knew I wanted to continue my series of unseen scenes from previous Star Wars Celebrations and my movie choice was obvious since this year is the 40th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back. I also knew I wanted to paint Princess Leia again to go along with previous pieces featuring her during A New Hope and Return of the Jedi. With those choices in mind, it struck me that I could make this a personal milestone for myself and revisit one of my earliest career highlights, the Little Golden Book ‘Meltdown on Hoth.’ My first illustrated children’s book, published in 1998, tells the story of C-3PO and R2-D2’s dilemma when the heat is turned up in Princess Leia’s quarters, as mentioned during banter between the droids in Echo Base. That book project was really the beginning of my fascination with scenes that take place between what we see on screen. I really loved the idea of going back to the story with my current art style. It was a challenge to capture the essence of the full book in a single frame, but really fun to relive the memories of painting all the dripping walls and puddles. Leia’s classic white dress from A New Hope was a new element I brought into this version because it’s so recognizable and she’s wearing it at the end of the movie, so we know the droids managed to save at least some of her clothes!” - Chris Trevas
