What we know as Star Wars went through a lot of changes on the way to the silver screen. We know that the film was completely re-edited after shooting. The story went through even more changes between George Lucas' original concept and the final screenplay. To see what his initial ideas might look like in a movie, students from the DAVE School took Ralph McQuarrie's concept art for The Star Wars along with some early script drafts and make an animated trailer-length version.
It's pretty cool to see Luke Skywalker as a girl, but hey, we finally got that in the new trilogy. I'm glad they changed Chewbacca from a scary monster into a hairy hero. -via Geeks Are Sexy
