The beauty of Star Wars is that it created an entire universe that people could discover and re-discover and fall in love with over generations. Some of the most creative minds in the film and design industry were involved in the creation of scenes so real and believable, we bet plenty of you were fooled into thinking that they were actual sets. Chris Evans, Mike Pangrazio, Frank Ordaz, Harrison Ellenshaw and Ralph McQuarrie are masters of their craft, hand painting ships, backdrops and even stormtroopers from the series we all know and love. Take a look at some of the best matte paintings and concept art from the first three films below.
