Stuart Freeborn Passes Away at 98

Original trilogy makeup supervisor Stuart Freeborn has passed away at age 98.

Freeborn’s accomplishments in the film industry were remarkable, having worked on notable films such as 2001: A Space Oddysey and Superman. Perhaps most notably were his contributions to the original Star Wars trilogy. Many of the alien character designs you saw in places like the Mos Eisley cantina in A New Hope as well as Chewbacca were his creation.
