Qwell

I remember back in 1997 or '98 when, to much hype and fanfare, Lucasfilm released the very "first" image showing the look of Episode I. It was a piece of concept art by Doug Chiang depicting some kind of "sky bus" on Coruscant- just a simple, yellow, capsule-shaped thing with funny little airfoils, and of course surrounded by those giant mega-skyscrapers that McQuarrie first visualized back in the 80s. Looking back on it and having the full visual scope of the movie in mind it was practically nothing, but it was so exciting to see something new and fresh looking (or at least, sleek and smooth looking) that was so different from the Star Wars we knew.

Ah, those heady days when we thought we could assume that the care going into getting the "look" right would carry over into... well... everything else.

And I never did end up seeing that yellow sky bus. Dicks.
