An armada of Rebel X-wing and Y-wing fighters pass the planet of Yavin before engaging the Death Star. These newly created CG ships proved difficult to match to their 1977 model-built counterparts, as the bluescreen/optical printing process had added unanticipated shifts to the original fighters’ colors schemes. A digital solution was soon found to re-create the appropriate hues.
