'STAR WARS' AT 40: THE DEADLY PURSUIT!


"The opening shot was one of the most important shots of the movie for visual effects, because if the audience bought that shot you had them."

Notable words from the former ILM genius, and continuing effects genius, Richard Edlund about the opening scene to the original Star Wars - the Blockade Runner pursuit by an Imperial Star Destroyer above the desert world of Tatooine - which stunned the world, took us to that Galaxy created by George Lucas with pure film-making skill, and defined cinema and cinema-going forever more...

At ILM, Grant McCune and Doug Smith ready the upside down Star Destroyer for filming.
