Close-Up Of The New And Improved 'Millennium Falcon'

Outsiders - December 29, 2014
This month's issue of Fortune features Walt Disney Co. CEO Bob Iger, and previews the first close-up of the new and improved Millennium Falcon, a.k.a the “fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.”

The Millennium Falcon debut in the 1977 Lucasfilm flick, Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, where it was manned by smuggler Han Solo and his hairy co-pilot, Chewbacca. In December 2015, an updated version of the Falcon will make its appearance in the much-anticipated seventh installment of the Star Wars series, The Force Awakens.

Lucasfilm’s special effects division, Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), worked with Fortune to create both the cover and the image below. The collaboration started with a photo shoot with CEO Iger earlier this month in New York. The photos were then turned over to ILM where Yannick Dusseault, visual effects art director for The Force Awakens, and his team gave Fortune six options showing the Falcon in different ways. The resulting image required the custom rendering of ILM’s computer generated Falcon. According to ILM, the fabled ship was rendered in wireframe form (a skeletal version) as well as a more layered “textured render,” which were combined in Photoshop to create the final image.
