CLASSIC IMAGE: THE DANGEROUS DUG!


About to take a beating from the mean spirited Dug pod racer named Sebulba, poor old Jar Jar Binks is thankfully saved via the interruption of Anakin Skywalker, a racing rival whom Sebulba hates even more, in a mildly confrontational scene from EPISODE I.

EPISODE VII: A SCAVENGER'S EXISTENCE...


Rey's introduction and life as a scavenger at the beginning of THE FORCE AWAKENS is an evocative and moving sequence, truly powered up by a beautiful theme for her character via John Williams, so it was interesting to recently hear from one of the film's editors that her early opening sequence had some of her speaking dialogue cut. A wise editorial choice that ultimately benefitted the final release.

EPISODE VII: RATHTAR RIOT!


They're loose. They're hungry. They don't stop. Han Solo's commission to deliver the nasty, carnivorous and truly repulsive looking Rathtars to King Prana has now gone kaput thanks to Rey, though our hero and Chewbacca are soon able to use the resultant chaos to their advantage, in a fun sequence from THE FORCE AWAKENS.

British conceptual ideas for the Rathtar, briefly shown at CELEBRATION 2016.

CLASSIC IMAGE: "YOU WILL BE A JEDI. I PROMISE."


With the slaying of his master-to-be in Qui-Gon Jinn, young Anakin Skywalker's feelings of isolation and discomfort for his future are momentarily put at ease by the Obi-Wan Kenobi, promising to train the boy in the ways of the Force as best he can, in this memorable scene from EPISODE I.
