Written and directed by Rian Johnson (Looper, The Brothers Bloom, Brick) and production designed by Rick Heinrichs (Fargo, The Big Lebowski, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Captain America: The First Avenger), this chapter, like every chapter before it, ow...

Reviews The Art of Star Wars

  • Brandon St Mark
    Really liked this a lot! Like I said in my one update for this, I haven't seen the film yet, but I have read the spoilers (of course, I've said many times before that I purposefully spoil myself for things). I'm not sure how I feel about the spoilers, but I'm definitely not going to say anything either way until I actually see the film (either this Thursday or sometime after Chirstmas). Anyway, I think this was a really good choice to read before...

    This is filled with beautiful artwork and conceptual images from the making of the film. It features stunning visuals and interesting descriptions of the creative process. This is a fascinating work for any Star Wars fan.

    Well, this gem arrived underneath the tree X-Mas morning and in the past 48 hours I've devoured it cover to cover. I don't really know how I could begin to criticize this tome. Not only is it jam packed with gorgeous illustrations, character designs, and story boards, there are also oodles of easter eggs and insights into the creative process of making this film from producers, designers, and writer/director Rian Johnson. I know this movie has ca...

    I was listening to movie reviews on NPR this morning and I enjoyed hearing what others thought of this movie and how it compared to the other films. The concept art and design was so greatly thought out and after hearing the reviews about what is going to happen, I can't wait to see this movie! What I liked the most was hearing the process in what went into the design of the various landscapes, the costumes for the characters, and seeing all new ...

    This ‘Art of...’ book was well-written but it lacked something that the last entry had. Or maybe was it because of the curse Rian Johnson took vs the one JJ Abrahams did? With the Art of TFA book they did have a blank canvas, and the magic of the book was laying the new characters and ground, getting new ideas and exploring paths, with Art of TLJ this was more like a work diary, maybe because it had less locations/planets? Maybe because the ...

    I'm glad they included events from Episode 7 (to prevent spoilers) in this one though honestly you should be watching the movie before reading the art book. I'm expecting that the art book for Episode 9 will then have things from The Last Jedi in it because there are some scenes I wanted so badly to be in this book so I could get a closer look but they weren't. Still, I loved taking a closer look at things and learning that a lot of things in thi...

    Great book full of beautiful artwork and some insight into the creative process of the movie. One star off bc it's missing some stuff that i was really looking forward to seeing (they should've just delayed the publication if they were worried about spoilers). I seriously wish there was an actual MAKING of the movie book (for this and TFA).
