Storyboards for the ultimate sci-fi film.

Star Wars (1977)
Director: George Lucas
Storyboard Artist: Joe Johnston

I love how you can still see the late, great Ralph McQuarrie’s influence.

Joe Johnston, who drew these, art directed the original Star Wars trilogy as well as Raiders of The Lost Ark and Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom.  He’d also go on to direct himself, most notably The Rocketeer and most recently Captain America: The First Avenger.  George Lucas would go on to ruining his creations and legitimately raping your childhoods.

c/o Kokaku, Star Wars figures were just inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame.  Raising two questions: a) There’s a toy hall of fame? and b) If there is, how did it take them so long to recognize the best toys ever made?
Anyway, this image, which I remember from the back of the cards, brought back some nice memories for me.
