Roger Christian

Set Decorator - Star Wars; Second Unit Director - Return of the Jedi and The Phantom Menace.

Roger won the Oscar in 1977 for Best Production Design for his work creating the iconic “lived-in” Star Wars universe we’ve all grown to love. He was Star Wars’ first Armourer, designing and building Luke’s lightsaber, Han Solo’s blaster, Chewie’s bowcaster and the Stormtrooper blaster (among others). Using surplus military and airplane scrap, he created the Millennium Falcon’s cockpit and Luke’s Landspeeder. Roger worked alongside George Lucas in Tunisia, designing the look and feel of Tatooine we've returned to so many times. Years later, Lucas tapped Roger to become the Second Unit Director for Return of the Jedi and The Phantom Menace!
