In the 1970s, Georga Lucas began creating a space fiction film trilogy following Luke Skywalker on his journey a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.
Forty-one years after Star Wars exploded onto cinema screens, new behind the scenes images, concept art, on-set photographs, and a first person account by writer, director and producer George Lucas has been released, and just in time for the holidays.
The 600-page book The Star Wars Archives: 1977—1983 published by Taschen will have die-hard Star Wars fans relive the original trilogy, as Lucas recounts the making of A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi.
From the drafts to concept art, the book reveals how Lucas’s characters evolved from ideas to reality.
The Star Wars Archives is selling for $200 and is available online at Taschen.com.
