A hand-drawn production-used storyboard from George Lucas' 2002 entry in the Star Wars saga - Attack of the Clones. These illustrations were used as part of the pre-visualisation process for the film's elaborate effects and stunts.
Precisely sketched in blue pencil by design director Doug Chiang, the storyboard features two illustrations focusing on the battle in the arena on Geonosis. During the sequence, Padme (Natalie Portman), Anakin (Hayden Christensen) and Obi-Wan (Ewan McGregor) are sentenced to die at the hands of Dooku's (Christopher Lee) various fell beasts and gladiators. However, the trio break free and are assisted by an army of Jedi assisted by Mace Wimdu (Samuel L. Jackson).
Originally intended as part of the huge arena battle featuring the Jedi, the manoeuvre was ultimately performed by Obi-Wan just after he escaped from his restraints. In the storyboard, a Picador mounted on an Orray races towards a lone Jedi, attempting to impale him on a lance. The Jedi uses the lance as a lever and flips the picador off his mount. In the film, Obi-Wan was the one to grab hold of the lance and neutralise the charging Picador.
A printed scene description beneath the illustrations details framing and action directions – at the top of the page, 'Picador Pole Vault' has been handwritten in pencil. The storyboard comes beautifully presented in a custom-built frame with laser cut mount board featuring the classic movie title and remains in very good condition.
