Get a Close-Up Look at the Millennium Falcon from ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

Star Wars: The Force Awakens” won’t hit our screens until December 2015, but thanks to Fortune, we now have our first close-up look at Han Solo’s (Harrison Ford) iconic Millennium Falcon in its “Episode VII” incarnation.

As part of Fortune’s cover story on Disney CEO Bob Iger, the magazine turned to Yannick Dusseault, the visual effects art director for “The Force Awakens” at Industrial Light & Magic, to create the detailed images of the beloved spacecraft. According to Forbes, the cover shot was a custom build that 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.”

Fans can get a closer look at the Falcon from the side in a composite image that features Iger standing with the ship in the background. Iger was photographed in New York, while the Falcon can be seen on a soundstage at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, England.

The teaser trailer for “The Force Awakens” also features the Millennium Falcon in flight, seemingly going head to head with Imperial TIE fighters. The film, directed by J.J. Abrams, is set 30 years after the events of George Lucas’ original trilogy.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens” will bow in theaters on Dec. 18, 2015.

 

Correction: A previous version of this article mistakenly attributed the picture to Forbes magazine.
