The production of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, like all movies, was one that began with ideas, lots and lots of ideas. While many of these concepts became part of the final film, they also evolved over time resulting in numerous things being planned, and then scrapped, at various points along the road.

Now we have a bit of a look at some of the ideas that were nearly part of Star Wars: The Force Awakens thanks to a new portfolio of images provided by the production design team at Industrial Light and Magic. They give us a new perspective on several locations within the film, as well as a potential look at some places we never saw at all. Check out some of our favorites.

TIE Fighters
We see the First Order attack Jakku with TIE Fighters in broad daylight early in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and we also see stormtroopers on the ground, but we never actually see them land. The only crafts we see the First Order land on the planet are at night in the opening sequence. The other item of note here is that, while difficult to see, the stormtroopers appear to have their classic original trilogy look, likely because the new design hadn’t been finished yet.
