1977 birthed the most iconic film franchise of all time. Over the past 3-plus decades, Star Wars has gone on to become a cult classic, but just how did things come to be for the galaxy far, far away?

Over the weekend, this collection of original Star Wars concept art  by illustrator Ralph McQuarrie surfaced. The collection sees many of our favorite characters in their pre-big screen debuts (1975) including everyone from C-3PO and R2-D2 to Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. There’s even drawings of the X-Wing flying through the Death Star as a Tie Fighter hunts it down. Oddly enough, McQuarrie believed that his concept art would never make it to the big screen, stating that he thought it was too complicated for a mainstream audience. Obviously millions of people proved that notion to be far from true.
