'STAR WARS' AT 40: ATMOSPHERIC ESCAPE!
"Imperial entanglements" have literally arrived on Han Solo's docking bay doorstep, forcing a faster retreat than expected from Mos Eisley and Tatooine for the Millennium Falcon, soon being chased by the planetary blockade of Imperial cruisers out into space.
A classic image of the Falcon - one of several notable ILM composite shots of the vehicle in space created for film promotion. It also became a famous cover for CINEFEX magazine back in 1997, when they examined the film's original outstanding effects work.
