The promotion blitz for Star Wars: Episode VII is well under way. The franchise hit Instagram only days ago, and now a new featurette has landed on YouTube, featuring the Millennium Falcon's famous flight through the Hoth asteroid field. The clip, taken from The Empire Strikes Back, shows storyboards from the scene, exposing how the pre-production wizards envisioned the chase before filming. Hopefully more archival footage is released between now and when Episode VII hits theaters in December 2015.
