(20th Century Fox, 1982) A very rare set of (3) original drawings used in the creation of lightsaber effects for the second film in the Star Wars saga, The Empire Strikes Back. To achieve the futuristic look of the glowing lightsabers, rotoscoping was used by the animation team to trace over the film images by hand, frame by frame. This technique was used for the lightsabers and laser blasts used throughout the film. These drawings, accomplished in ink on 3-hole animation paper, were used in the creation of this historic film. Each inked drawing has an image size ranging from 2" to 2.75" long, and are on 10.5"x12.5" sheets of animation paper. The condition is very good with minor edge wear from use.
