May the Force Be With You

Volume two of the definitive exploration
of the Star Wars galaxy
From the moment Star Wars burst onto the screen in 1977, audiences have been in equal parts fascinated and appalled by the half-man/half-machine hybrid Darth Vader. In 1999, creator George Lucas began the story of how Anakin Skywalker grew up to train as a Jedi under Obi-Wan Kenobi, found love with the Queen of Naboo, Padmé Amidala, before turning to the dark side of his nature and becoming more machine than man.

After driving the development of nascent digital technology, George Lucas perceived how he could create new creatures and new worlds on a grander scale than ever before. He created the first digital blockbuster, and met fierce resistance when he pushed for widespread digital cameras, sets, characters, and projection – all of which are now used throughout the industry. He essentially popularized the modern way of making movies.

Made with the full cooperation of George Lucas and Lucasfilm, this second volume covers the making of the prequel trilogy — Episode I The Phantom Menace, Episode II Attack of the Clones, and Episode III Revenge of the Sith — and features exclusive interviews with Lucas and his collaborators. The book is profusely illustrated with script pages, production documents, concept art, storyboards, on-set photography, stills, and posters.

The Ultimate Guide to a Misunderstood Trilogy

Howard, October 27, 2021
I'm a very big fan of the Prequel Trilogy. Despite any problems people may have with them, they represent the pure vision of auteur filmmaker, within the scope of a Hollywood blockbuster. In an age of endless superhero movies and studio-driven nonsense, they've become a rare gem. They're the only films of this scale that have ever been self-funded by an indie director, and that makes them so unique and interesting. So it's wonderful to finally have a definitive reference guide for them.

Beautiful to Behold

Artin, October 27, 2021
The Star Wars Archive books, just like the rest of the Archive series and all that Taschen publishes, are thoughtful, comprehensive and just beautifully put together. You don't have to be a Star Wars fan to appreciate and enjoy these books as they offer a unique insight into the creative process. And even though I personally am not a fan of the new sequel trilogy, I still can't wait to see the future Taschen Star Wars Archive book covering those three films.

Books written with love

I wanted to thank the entire Taschen team for the art and dedication of their books. Impeccable products and excellent shipping service. Thank you very much from Chile!

Maravilloso libro en todos los aspectos menos uno.

Borja, February 09, 2022
No tengo nada malo que decir de la presentación y la calidad de este ejemplar (a la altura de su antecesor), salvo que no incluye el maletín de cartón negro que sí tenía la edición de la trilogía clásica y que aquí ha sido sustituido por otro de peor calidad y calor marrón. Una pena porque el maletín es una solución maravillosa para evitar que se deteriore y, por supuesto, facilitar su transporte. Amén de la pérdida en la estética. Fuera de eso: este libro es una maravilla.

Liebe zum Buch

Laureen, October 29, 2021
Ich habe meinen Freund als absoluten Star Wars Fan diesen Band zu Weihnachten geschenkt. Es ist einfach ein traumhaftes Buch! Die Qualität ist überragend, vor allem des Papiers und der Fotos. Es zeigt einfach eine Liebe zum Buch, die man auch spüren kann, wenn man es durchblättert. Für besondere Geschenke genau das Richtige!

Magnifique édition, comme toujours chez Taschen.
Planches magnifiques, à avoir absolument si l'on est fan de la Saga.

Star Wars einmalig

Ein einmaliger künstlerischer Einblick in die Welt der Star Wars Fantasie - toll für alte und junge Fans, aber auch schön und informativ für weniger Star Wars Begeisterte, wie ich es bin - Buchkauf war für Enkel
