I am very excited to share that today, as part of Comic-Con @ Home, a new book was announced – The Art of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge! Providing an exclusive look at the visual development behind Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, this large-format book showcases much of the amazing concept art and design that ultimately defined the immersive lands. Featuring never before seen artwork – as well as exclusive interviews about the land’s creation – from artists at Walt Disney Imagineering, Lucasfilm and many others, this book offers an inside look at what goes into making an immersive Star Wars destination.
The land’s rich storytelling provided a great opportunity for exclusive commentary from many of the key creative minds involved in bringing Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to life. This behind-the-scenes look at our creative process, combined with hundreds of full-color concept artworks, sketches, blueprints, photographs, and more, is what makes this book about dreaming up and creating Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge so special.
I’m also happy to share that this book was authored by the talented Amy Ratcliffe, managing editor of Nerdist and author of Star Wars: Women of the Galaxy. You also may know Amy as a Star Wars Celebration host, and for her regular contributions to IGN, StarWars.com and Star Wars Insider. And, I am honored to have been asked to write the foreword!
I can’t wait for you to check out The Art of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge when it hits shelves in Spring 2021. It’s another way to live the land’s rich stories both inside and outside the Disney parks, and the only way to see the art and innovations that led to the land’s creation documented in one place!
Pre-orders for The Art of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is now available from ABRAMS publishing.
