I was giving this book as a present, and boy am I thankful.
If you ever wanted to know how Lucas comes up with his ideas for the movies, then you need this book.
It is full of sketches, high quality concept art, paintings and drawings showing each thought and idea that led to the birth of Episode III.
Along side each image and painting is a small diary showing the development of the story and the movie. At the rear of the book is the entire script for the movie. You will even find scenes and parts of the movie that never made it to the big screen.
These scenes were made, but left on the cutting room floor. Gives us hope for the directors cut or extended version coming out soon.
You find out that Lucas did'nt actually come up with many of the ideas in the movie, his concept artists did. The planets seen in the movies were the brainchild of the artists. Lucas gave them a simple brief, come up with ideas for planets to be used for the clone wars. Simple.
The aliens, the animals and the enemies were also thought up by the concept artists. Yes this book will shatter any illusion that Lucas made the Universe himself. Although he did have final say as to what stays and what goes. He used two stamps to mark ideas he liked. One stamp to mark an idea or drawing is approved and will be allowed to be worked on, another stamp 'fabuloso' meant that no more work was needed on the concept and it was perfect and to be used.
If you think General Greivious was always going to be the villain of the movie, think again. There is a whole section of the book where all the concept artists try to out do each other with ideas for the big baddie of the movie. See who you think was the best.
If you are an artist you will love this book, if you are an art lover you will love this book, if you are a star wars fan you will love this book and if you are wanting to make it in the world of cinema you will need this book.

By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 13 Feb. 2009
Format: Paperback
Length: 0:25 Mins
Putting this book down is difficult after you flip through a few pages. There are hundreds of pieces of conceptual art and beautiful paintings. It is apparent right from the start that George Lucas only hire the best artists for his movie.

The art genre is science fiction. You'll see a lot of concept art on cityscape, robots, planets, costumes, creatures, architecture, props and characters relating to the Star Wars movie. This book is all about art, you won't see any movie stills.

There are two versions of the book. The one with the movie script has 272 pages. The one I'm holding has only 224 pages.

Design concepts are explained for the characters and set. There's not much text but enough. The level of detail, effort and creativity displayed by the artists is simply marveling. This genre is really a playground for artists to explore with their imagination.

For Star Wars fans, there's no reason not to get this book. For artbook lovers, especially those who like sci-fi, this book should be on your shopping list also.

There are more pictures on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile the link.

this book is full of fantastic artwork from the film.I couldn't recommend it highly enough, if you can get hold of a copy that stays together.perhaps the hardback is a better option, unfortunately within a month, every page in my copy came loose, so its difficult to use it for reference as a concept designer/illustrator.

The first thing you notice with this book is how nicely produced it is, bound with hardcover all the interior pages are printed on glossy paper, ensuring top quality printing off all the images.
The book gives a great overview of the WHOLE creative process, starting from photo references taken by George Lucas, into the conceptual 2D images created by artists in 2002, right up to the character and set modelling in full 3D, this is really interesting to see!
There are hundreds of full colour images reproduced fantastically complete with commentaries by many of the artists, giving an insight into their creative process.
Well worth the money for any Star Wars fan or art fanatic!

By Thomas Pots TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 17 Dec. 2009
Format: Paperback
With so many movie artwork books presented in soft cover and on thin paper, it makes a pleasant change to find this book - hardbound with dust jacket, and printed on very nice paper. It features many hundreds of pieces of artwork from right across the project,including many designs for locations, story lines and characters that fell by the wayside.

I bought it purely for the pictures, many of which are quite extraordinary. If you are interested in how the designers develop their artwork, then I recommend Doug Chiang's highly informative book "Mechanika" which, at time of writing this, is available from Amazon for very little money.

It is not perfect, even though I have given it five stars. The index isn't brilliant, though I doubt you will need it anyway. The movie script, which is included in full, seems quite separate from the rest of the book. It is not referenced in any way to the artwork. My only other gripe is that it doesn't indicate which artwork was "approved" for the movie.

Overall though, this books strolls along to an easy five stars. In the words of Darth Grievous: "... a fine addition to my collection".
