The wait is over. On 19 May this year (2005), all remaining
questions will be answered when Star Wars: Episode III
- Revenge of the Sith hits our screens. Over a month before
the event, The Art of... book of this movie arrives
in bookshops to give fans an exclusive behind-the-scenes look
at the production of the film...
of the Sith is the Star Wars film that fans have
been waiting to see, and with that in mind two books that
any true fan should treat themselves to this year are being
Making of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and
The Art of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith).
love these coffee table books. The Art of... is a rich,
sumptuous, book that you can dip into again and again, though
I suggest you do so only after watching the film as the book
contains the full script. It includes thousands of illustrations,
matte paintings and conceptual art. The thick gloss paper
on which the book is printed maintains all the detail of the
fascination of these books lies as much in what made it into
the eventual look of the film as the ideas which were rejected.
Clothing, interiors, craft, the evolution of all of these
is demonstrated here. This book is different to the others
in the series. Previously, the art work was set out to follow,
as much as possible, the screenplay. This one however is presented
in the chronological order that the paintings where created,
which may confuse anyone who might just purchase this single
volume. Most of the pages have the date when the art was created
and the reasons for that become obvious when you buy this
as well as The Making of...
has cleverly linked the two books by this method, so if you're
reading about what conceptual art was being created on a particular
date you can pick up The Making of... to see what was
happening on the movie's production at the same time.
who is Rinzler, some lucky fan boy who got to follow the good
and great for a couple of years? What makes these books so
complete and fascinating is that he is in fact a senior editor
at Lucasfilm. So, for once, this really is an insider's view
of Revenge of the Sith, warts and all.
With their interconnectivity it really is worth getting both
books, it would even be worth getting a coffee table, to display
these heavy tomes on, just to make your friends jealous.
