Dennis Pellegrom over at Star Wars Interviews caught up with Creature Concept Designer Jake Lunt Davies to talk Porgs, more Porgs and Pao from Rogue One.

How did you get involved with Star Wars and start designing all these creatures and droids for the movies?

I’d worked with Neal Scanlan on and off from 2000 to maybe 2005 doing design work. Our careers diverged after that – I was focusing more on work in commercials, storyboarding, design and subsequently some directing and I think Neal was doing more prosthetics and SMUFX. By the summer of 2013 I don’t think I’d been in touch with Neal for five years when he phoned me out of the blue to tell me he’d got Star Wars and was looking get some concept designers on the team.
