Concept Art For The Forbidden Planet Remake That Never Happened

You may not be aware, but back in 1995, Irvin Kershner tried to make a remake of Forbidden Planet. Sadly, the project never happened, but Ralph McQuarrie, John Eaves, Mark McCreery, Syd Mead, and Stan Winston were already doing some work on it. We can take a look at McQuarrie and Mead’s work here.

The McQuarrie concept art has immense sets where the humans are like ants and the Mead art shows off the technology that we would have seen. From what we can see here, this would have been quite the epic. We can only dream about how amazing this stuff would have looked on screen.
