'STAR WARS' AT 40: "HERE THEY COME!"

ILM storyboard by Joe Johnston.

The Death Star surface has been pestered by X-wing fighters, and now the Empire's TIE fighters have joined the conflict, fast engaging the Rebel forces and delivering crippling losses to them, starting off with John D (as in 'Doe', as known behind the scenes), played by Jack Klaff, the first onscreen victim to the TIEs' speed and firepower.

Original model for John D.

Originally it was written and shot with John D shooting down a TIE fighter before being destroyed by another of the enemy craft fast on his tail, but in the end it was decided during editing that it would have more impact if the TIEs were seen being fast and lethal from the offset.
