Creating the Worlds of Star Wars: 365 Days Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1997, as George Lucas worked to complete early drafts for Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, he enlisted the talents of some of the greatest storyboard artists of the modern era to illustrate conceptual storyboards that would inform the development of the final shooting script, as well as the finished film. Working from Lucasand#8217;s ideas for scenes and sequences, these artists produced beautiful drawings that helped lay the foundations for the worlds, characters, and shots of the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy. Together, these conceptual storyboards show early takes on favorite scenes; alternate, unused approaches to character designs and environments; and entirely different approaches to key moments. Like wordless comic books, they have an energy and rhythm all their own that is fascinating to explore.

Now, for the first time, Lucasfilm has opened its archives to present the best of the conceptual storyboards for Episodes I, II, and III. Star Wars Storyboards: The Prequel Trilogy collects the best storyboards from all three films together in one striking volume. Throughout this book, readers will find insight into how these conceptual storyboards helped to contribute both to the creation of the Prequel Trilogy and the expansion of the Star Wars universe.

Praise for Stars Wars Storyboards:

and#147;We had no idea the Star Wars prequels could have been this good! Overall, the book gave us a new appreciation for what could have been . . . Plus itand#8217;s exceptionally gorgeous, and you should check it out.and#8221; and#151;i09

Book News Annotation:

Knoll saw the first Star Wars film in 1977, when he was 14 years old, and a couple decades later he wound up working on episodes I, II, and III as visual effects supervisor for Industrial Light & Magic. For Star Wars enthusiasts and others who want to know how it was done, this book looks at illusions created in all six films (through 2005). The author gives commentary on 365 scenes and enivronments, which are presented in 1,000 color photos of interior and exterior sets and models. The book is 9.5x6.5<"> and comes with a CD-ROM with photos and mini-videos.

Synopsis:

The only book that covers all six "Star Wars" films, Knoll's spectacular survey explores the visual world created by those films. A CD-ROM, with nearly 100 QuickTime panoramas of the sets, adds to the beauty of this edition.

Synopsis:

From Ralph McQuarrie and Joe Johnston to Doug Chiang, Ryan Church, Iain McCaig, Erik Tiemens, and the next generation of animation and video-game artists, Star Wars Art: Concept collects, for the first time ever, the very best Star Wars conceptual artwork. As curated by George Lucas, the artwork that helped bring the Star Wars Saga to life is revealed in all its glory, featuring pre-production drawings and paintings from the Original Trilogy, the Prequel Trilogy, the TV shows, and the video games, including an exclusive preview of artwork from the highly anticipated 1313. Spanning the years from 1975 to the present, Star Wars Art: Concept is a fascinating look at the process of conceptual design. From pen and paint and paper to the digital realm, the result is the creation of breathtaking iconic worlds, vehicles, and characters that successive generations have embraced and made their own.
