Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Concept Art Shows An Interesting Alternate Opening

Star Wars: The Force Awakens had its moments. Some aspects of the film I completely disagree with. However, the first 10 minutes or so is some of my favorite Star Wars content, ever. I thought J.J. Abrams’ opening shot, the silhouette of a Star Destroyer was well done, even though it was very safe.

Today, we get a look at some concept art that I wish Abrams and company would have followed through with. Instead of the shot we got, it appears as the film and the trilogy could have opened with a powerful statement. As you can see below in the Instagram post from artist Christian Alzmann, one idea for the opening was to have an old Star Destroyer being towed to Jakku, the Star Wars version of being taken to the junkyard.

This opening would have conveyed to fans what that the Empire isn’t what it used to be. And while The First Order sufficiently fills the void left by the tyrannical faction from the original trilogy, it’s a new era in a galaxy far, far away.
