Watch This Alternate Opening To Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Here's a cool piece of "what if" via NME

While the final cut of the movie opens with an Imperial fleet preparing to attack the plenty Jakku, Abrams’ original vision and storyboard was for the film to begin with republic vessels towing an Imperial Star Destroyer into the gravitational pull of Jakku. It would then crash, before Rey surfaced to scavenge the wreckage. While parts of the sequence did make it into the film, mystery surrounds why it was dropped from the opening.

Now, animator Tim Grey has recreated the original opening sequence. Check it out below.
