I like what C has suggested but how about doing something with the black, could try something like this?

Funny you should me bring up doing a starfield in the background, I was taking a few days off from working on it and had thought about doing that on the back cover with maybe Naboo in the background of the black just to break it up and give it a little texture.

Try doing the star-field with smaller stars along with some blue and red stars plus a planet added in the mix if need be.  These are stunning.  ;)

I've decided to continue developing both concepts with the darker gold going forward. I've added a starfield (using the background of stars from the opening shot of Tatooine in the original with a few brighter points added as well as Naboo in the background to add some texture to the back.

Now that my new computer is up and running, I can get back to work on these.

I have added a gradient to the front title to make it a little less flat. I plan to expand the same gradient to the back once I figure out whether the gradient should be more or less subtle.

I considered adding starfield to the front of the cover as well but elected not too as I like the simpler black background for the front.

Outside of adding a gradient, I feel pretty comfortable with the cover overall so once I get it done, I'll probably consider it done unless I think of anything else. After that, I'll use the same template and style to do all 6 main films and Rogue One.

Apologies for the delay on further work. The move to my new pc broke the text and after quite a bit of trying, I can't seem to replicate the font and have to settle for an inferior one.

I have added a gold gradient effect to almost everything gold. I figure once I get that right, it will be complete and I'll begin working on the rest of the series.
