Watch This Awesome Empire Strikes Back Original Storyboard Comparison

Never tell me the odds... of storyboard concepts making it to screen.

Storyboarding is an essential part of the movie-making process, but how much of the original dream for a film actually makes it to the screen? In this side-by-side comparison of the asteroid field sequence from The Empire Strikes Back, we’re able to see exactly how much of the sweet concept was transformed into reality.

Surprisingly (and awesomely), the cockpit shots, TIE fighter collisions, and the Falcon docking inside an asteroid are all virtually identical to their storyboards (using practical effects, nonetheless). Impressive! The force was obviously with them for this one.
