On Our Shelves Now
For the first time, Lucasfilm has opened its Archives to present the complete storyboards for the original Star Wars trilogy--the world-changing A New Hope and its operatic sequels, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi--as well as never-before-published art from early conceptual and deleted scenes.
From the opening chase above Tatooine in A New Hope to the Battle of Endor in Jedi, this book presents the visual inspiration behind now-iconic moments. Readers can finally see a full set of storyboards by legendary artist Joe Johnston, as well as early boards for Episode IV by Alex Tavoularis and for Episode V by Ivor Beddoes, rarely seen Episode VI boards by Roy Carnon, and Ralph McQuarrie's never-before-seen storyboards for Episode V.
