Star Wars: The Force Awakens shattered box-office records as one of the highest-grossing films of all time, and its eagerly awaited sequel, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, is sure to do the same. Written and directed by Rian Johnson (Looper, The Brothers Bloom, Brick) and production designed by Rick Heinrichs (Fargo, The Big Lebowski, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Captain America: The First Avenger), this chapter, like every chapter before it, owes its visual language and fully imagined cinematic landscape to an incomparable art department: the Lucasfilm "visualists." The Art of Star Wars: The Last Jedi explores their vision and illuminates their creative process in stunning detail. Featuring concept art and costume sketches, storyboards, and blueprints, fans will take a deep dive into the development of the fantastic worlds, characters, and creatures - both old and new - of The Last Jedi. Featuring unforgettable art and exclusive interviews with the filmmakers, this visual archive highlights moviemaking magic at its finest.… (more)

Writing: 4.5; Unfortunately, there isn't a lot of writing to be read here. However, the illustrations are the focus of the book, so this is a nearly void topic.
Theme: 5.0; The focus of this book is the art behind the eighth episodic film in the Star Wars saga. Since this is Star Wars and art behind the film, I especially enjoyed it, seeing all sorts of different ideas that the designers originally had created for the movie and its contents.
Content: 5.0; Nothing objectionable.

Overall: 4.8; this book is a good read, despite its lack of words. The visual aid is what you'd be reading this book for, and it is interesting to see the different concepts the filmmakers had imagined originally. This is a nice volume to pick up if you're really into Star Wars and the stories behind the movie, but it is also easily skippable if you aren't into the behind the scenes of the films. Recommended, if this type of book interests you. If you aren't into the behind the scenes of Star Wars, this isn't the book for you. *Reviewed on June 4, 2018; DNO* ( )
