A signed production storyboard from Irvin Kershner's 1980 classic, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.
The Rebels find themselves scattered and in retreat after being defeated on the ice planet Hoth. Luke (Mark Hamill) starts his training with Yoda, and Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Han (Harrison Ford) are pursued by Darth Vader.
After the original storyboard was approved, copies were made and distributed to the various department heads during pre-production. This storyboard shows the sequence during the battle on Hoth where Luke's Snowspeeder gets hit, and includes a description of the action below each image. It has been signed by special/visual effects supervisor, Brian Johnson. In the final cut of the film the shots play out slightly differently than were storyboarded, but not drastically so.
The shots are labeled '150, 151, 152', and the white paper is hole punched on the left-hand side showing that it was held in sequence with other pages.
The storyboard comes beautifully presented in a custom-built frame with laser-cut mount board featuring the classic movie title. The display is in excellent condition.
Materials: Wood, Acrylic, Paper, Card, Ferrous Metals.
