Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied were married on August 4, 2012. In honor of their third anniversary, we take a look at her wedding in the Star Wars saga.
Marvel took over publishing Star Wars comics at the beginning of 2015. The first issue of the ongoing Darth Vader series was released on February 11, 2015. Among the numerous variants for Issue #1 was a blank sketch variant. On this sketch cover, Lacey Marie Simpson has recreated the wedding of Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala, which occurred at the end of Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones.
I commissioned this sketch at CollectiveCon in Jacksonville, Florida, on May 9, 2015.
