The website of Industrial Light & Magic, the design and effects team made famous by the original Star Wars, has shared a massive art dump from The Force Awakens, containing images from throughout the film’s development.

Which is probably more exciting than the art itself! I mean yes, it’s nice seeing some near-final artwork here, showing characters and locations which would be copied almost exactly for the movie, but you’ll also notice some pieces from very early on in The Force Awakens’ development, where many things—evil castles, old Stormtrooper helmets, weird folding TIE Fighters, two-man X-Wings, what looks like a male Jedi star—look wildly different than the ones which ended up on screen.

Below are some highlights, but the whole dump is available to view on ILM’s site.
