A hand-drawn Pirate Ship storyboard from the production of George Lucas' Star Wars: A New Hope. During pre-production, the ship that was later seen onscreen as the Millennium Falcon was referred to as the "Pirate Ship," with the earliest designs by Colin Cantwell and updates made by Joe Johnston.
This hand-drawn storyboard of the Falcon in the early blockade runner style is rendered in ink on vellum marked "Board 42," "8," and "The POV of Pirate Ship." Also included is a list of handwritten notes regarding the film's sequencing. Both pieces are in good overall condition.
