May 11, 2014 – OK, this I must get: “Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy” is both art and history, showing us how the early creators envisioned Star Wars coming to life – even before the cameras first started filming.
The press release from Abrams Books states:
“For the first time ever, Lucasfilm has opened its archives to present the best of the 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. Featuring more than 1,000 boards and sketches, ‘Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy’ is a visually stunning, must-have piece of memorabilia.”
