When we knew the Death Star was gonna be featured we wanted to explore different angles of the battle station. At some point we had to question what the north and south poles looked like. We went right to the source: Ralph McQuarrie. We took one of his Death Star paintings and just adapted it to the final version we see in the film. Unfortunately we didn't have a chance to feature the poles prominently with the exception of one shot at the end. Still a fun little task to tackle.
