"Star Wars IV: A New Hope" in One Infographic

On BoingBoing, I came across this amazing piece of art that combines two of my favorite things: Star Wars & graphic design.

Swiss artist Martin Panchaud created an amazing, scrolling infographic that details the entire Star Wars: A New Hope movie. Click the link below to view the entire graphic:

The exact measurements are a ridiculous 1024 x 465152 pixels / 27 x 12307 cm / 10.6 x 4845.3-inches. If the entire thing were printed out, it would be over 400ft long!

As someone who works in Adobe Illustrator daily and appreciates how complicated detailed art files can become, the scope of this project makes my head spin.

Here is a screenshot of the work in progress- featuring Princess Leia's CR90 Corellian Corvette (the Tantive IV) & its pursuant Imperial Class Star Destroyer:

Here are some of the vector objects he created, to use throughout this truly impressive graphic:
