The January 2015 issue of Fortune magazine features Disney CEO Bob Iger along with a conceptual image of the Millennium Falcon as a backdrop on its cover, while the inside spread has an exclusive look at the Falcon as she appears in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The image of Han Solo’s favorite ride featured on the cover was custom rendered for this issue by Industrial Light & Magic working in conjunction with Fortune. Along with the cover, the interior image of Bob Iger posing with the Falcon is also a bit of ILM magic, as explained by the magazine:
The collaboration started with our photo shoot with CEO Iger earlier this month in New York. The photos were then turned over to ILM to, well, work their magic. Not surprisingly, the secretive division was mum about the exact process for creating the realistic shot of Iger standing right on set, casually leaning against a chunk of metal (the image seen in the opening pages of the story).
