One of the things I find so interesting about Star Wars is how the
creative process so clearly wasn’t locked from the beginning. It
was a long and winding road, and throughout writing the essays for
Kitbashed I’ve found that despite intense pressure there was
always an energetic adventurousness with ideas which inevitably
lead to some of the most iconic designs in film history.
The Falcon is a great example of that, specifically because the
final design is so distinct. It makes it a much more enticing to
try to decipher how it came about.
While I’ve been pursuing this subject for years, it wasn’t until I
starting putting together this essay that I finally began to find
some of the finer details of the Falcon’s creation.
