Fortune Magazine has released the cover for their upcoming January issue featuring Disney CEO Bob Iger posing next to the Millennium Falcon from ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens.’
Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) worked their magic to create the cover and the composite image of Iger.
Yannick Dusseault, visual effects art director for The Force Awakens, and his team gave Fortunesix options showing the Falcon in different ways. The resulting image required the custom rendering of ILM’s computer generated Falcon. According to ILM, the fabled ship was rendered in wireframe form (a skeletal version) as well as a more layered “textured render,” which were combined in Photoshop to create the final image.
