The Art of Star Wars: The Last Jedi (The Art of Star Wars) Reviews

  • Kelly Sedinger
    Mar 25, 2018

    Really liked this a lot! Like I said in my one update for this, I haven't seen the film yet, but I have read the spoilers (of course, I've said many times before that I purposefully spoil myself for things). I'm not sure how I feel about the spoilers, but I'm definitely not going to sa...

    The art in this book, like all art of Star Wars books, is great. The attention to detail is amazing. Besides, it is always fun to look at these kinds of books to see what kind of designs weren't used. However, the text portion was not as fun to read as it usually is for these types of ...

    Following the same format as Szostak?s ?The Art Of The Force Awakens? (and last years ?Rogue One? by Josh Kushins), this takes the story of ?The Last Jedi? from initial concepts (and also includes some spoiler moments from ?The Force Awakens?) right through production...

    I need this for, uh, research . . . ...

    This is filled with beautiful artwork and conceptual images from the making of the film. It features stunning visuals and interesting descriptions of the creative process. This is a fascinating work for any Star Wars fan. ...

    This is a good but not spectacular entry in ?Art of ____ movie? books. Quite a bit of the art is gorgeous, of course, and there are some interesting tidbits about the making of the film ? such as how they only built half the bridge of Snoke?s ship and then flipped the image...

    I was listening to movie reviews on NPR this morning and I enjoyed hearing what others thought of this movie and how it compared to the other films. The concept art and design was so greatly thought out and after hearing the reviews about what is going to happen, I can't wait to see th...

    I'm simply amazed at how much work goes into one movie. Especially one as big as Star Wars! ...

    Well, this gem arrived underneath the tree X-Mas morning and in the past 48 hours I've devoured it cover to cover. I don't really know how I could begin to criticize this tome. Not only is it jam packed with gorgeous illustrations, character designs, and story boards, there are also oo...

    I'm glad they included events from Episode 7 (to prevent spoilers) in this one though honestly you should be watching the movie before reading the art book. I'm expecting that the art book for Episode 9 will then have things from The Last Jedi in it because there are some scenes I want...

    of course this is incredible - not just visually, but the text explains the process, from conception to end, from writing to all of the details, that made this film come to life, as well as the timeline overlaps with TFA and RO (production-wise, which was a little tricky). how and why ...

    I love "art of" books and seeing the design process. The illustrations and sketches in this book are amazing and if you liked The Last Jedi, you'll really enjoy flipping through this to see what various costumes and aliens and vehicles looked like as they were being designed. There'...

    If I could give this 3 1/2 I would. I think that I am too used to Marvel and their way of doing their books. I really wish that there was more concept art in this book. It seems more to be a story board than anything else. While it was interesting, it wasn't what I wanted. ...

    Okay, honestly I wanted more info about the First Order and Kylo Ren and Hux was like, barely mentioned. But I understand that most of the movie is not about that. I guess I was hoping for more bonus content like you would see on the DVD edition or something. There was a little bit of ...

    I always love the "Art of..." books for all the STAR WARS movies, and this is no exception. The books gather lavish selections of concept art for each film, including storyboards, matte paintings, costume designs, and more. These are of particular interest to STAR WARS fans, obviously,...

    I love these "The Art of..." Star Wars books they release with the film. They not only show where the cool visuals and ideas came from but, even more intriguingly, they show which ideas they didn't use. That last point is even more powerful because I didn't care for "The Last Jedi" at ...

    Absolutely loved the Last Jedi, so knew I had to get this! A beautiful book which gave me deeper appreciation for the huge amount of work that goes into making these films, a lot of which the audience will never see on the screen. 'What could have been' is a common theme in these a...

    The artwork and concept information was excellent, but I was disappointed that there wasn't more text on key characters. ...

    these books are perfect. tlj's edition is no exception. ...

    This ?Art of...? book was well-written but it lacked something that the last entry had. Or maybe was it because of the curse Rian Johnson took vs the one JJ Abrahams did? With the Art of TFA book they did have a blank canvas, and the magic of the book was laying the new charact...

    ??? ...

    In the absence of a more thorough "making of" book such as those by J.W. Rinzler for the original trilogy, this still provides a great insight into the creative process behind The Last Jedi. Just keep in mind that the focus is on the visual design, not so much on the development of the...

    Great book full of beautiful artwork and some insight into the creative process of the movie. One star off bc it's missing some stuff that i was really looking forward to seeing (they should've just delayed the publication if they were worried about spoilers). I seriously wish there wa...

    The artwork in this book was absolutely beautiful but I just wish there was more of it. This art book was not as organized as the TFA one, where things were split month by month. None the less I enjoyed reading and seeing how TLJ was created. ...

    The Star Wars universe is a vast and constantly growing thing. But did you ever stop to wonder what makes something look like it belongs in a Star Wars movie? In The Art of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, readers see the various stages of planning that went into creating new creatures, ve...

    I'm a sucker for The Art of ... books when it comes to the films I love. It's both a way of decoding intentional symbolism and of revelling in the world created by the story. The super serious commentary by the technical creators is always interesting although it often borders on prete...

    I always enjoy reading books like these that describe the creative processes behind my favorite films. This book highlighter, amongst other tings, General Leia, the planet Crait, Canto Bight, Rey and Luke and First Order ships. Within each section were drawings, paintings and digital a...

    With the lack of a Making of sort of book, the Art of The Force Awakens underwhelmed, with a ton of gorgeous artwork but no context as to how and why the movie was developing the way it was. This book fixes that, with insight from the director and the artists about production as well a...

    Usually the art of books are among my favorite tomes in the Star Wars pantheon. Why then the middling review? Well, it's odd. It seems like Rian Johnson had a very strong idea from the very beginning of which direction he wanted to take the film in. While that made for a particularly s...

    The artwork in this book was absolutely beautiful but I just wish there was more of it. This art book was not as organized as the TFA one, where things were split month by month. None the less I enjoyed reading and seeing how TLJ was created. ...

    The Star Wars universe is a vast and constantly growing thing. But did you ever stop to wonder what makes something look like it belongs in a Star Wars movie? In The Art of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, readers see the various stages of planning that went into creating new creatures, ve...

    Really liked this a lot! Like I said in my one update for this, I haven't seen the film yet, but I have read the spoilers (of course, I've said many times before that I purposefully spoil myself for things). I'm not sure how I feel about the spoilers, but I'm definitely not going to sa...

    The art in this book, like all art of Star Wars books, is great. The attention to detail is amazing. Besides, it is always fun to look at these kinds of books to see what kind of designs weren't used. However, the text portion was not as fun to read as it usually is for these types of ...

    Following the same format as Szostak?s ?The Art Of The Force Awakens? (and last years ?Rogue One? by Josh Kushins), this takes the story of ?The Last Jedi? from initial concepts (and also includes some spoiler moments from ?The Force Awakens?) right through production...

    I'm glad they included events from Episode 7 (to prevent spoilers) in this one though honestly you should be watching the movie before reading the art book. I'm expecting that the art book for Episode 9 will then have things from The Last Jedi in it because there are some scenes I want...

    of course this is incredible - not just visually, but the text explains the process, from conception to end, from writing to all of the details, that made this film come to life, as well as the timeline overlaps with TFA and RO (production-wise, which was a little tricky). how and why ...

    If I could give this 3 1/2 I would. I think that I am too used to Marvel and their way of doing their books. I really wish that there was more concept art in this book. It seems more to be a story board than anything else. While it was interesting, it wasn't what I wanted. ...

    Okay, honestly I wanted more info about the First Order and Kylo Ren and Hux was like, barely mentioned. But I understand that most of the movie is not about that. I guess I was hoping for more bonus content like you would see on the DVD edition or something. There was a little bit of ...

    I love these "The Art of..." Star Wars books they release with the film. They not only show where the cool visuals and ideas came from but, even more intriguingly, they show which ideas they didn't use. That last point is even more powerful because I didn't care for "The Last Jedi" at ...

    Absolutely loved the Last Jedi, so knew I had to get this! A beautiful book which gave me deeper appreciation for the huge amount of work that goes into making these films, a lot of which the audience will never see on the screen. 'What could have been' is a common theme in these a...

    If I could give this 3 1/2 I would. I think that I am too used to Marvel and their way of doing their books. I really wish that there was more concept art in this book. It seems more to be a story board than anything else. While it was interesting, it wasn't what I wanted. ...

    Okay, honestly I wanted more info about the First Order and Kylo Ren and Hux was like, barely mentioned. But I understand that most of the movie is not about that. I guess I was hoping for more bonus content like you would see on the DVD edition or something. There was a little bit of ...

    I always love the "Art of..." books for all the STAR WARS movies, and this is no exception. The books gather lavish selections of concept art for each film, including storyboards, matte paintings, costume designs, and more. These are of particular interest to STAR WARS fans, obviously,...

    I love these "The Art of..." Star Wars books they release with the film. They not only show where the cool visuals and ideas came from but, even more intriguingly, they show which ideas they didn't use. That last point is even more powerful because I didn't care for "The Last Jedi" at ...

    Absolutely loved the Last Jedi, so knew I had to get this! A beautiful book which gave me deeper appreciation for the huge amount of work that goes into making these films, a lot of which the audience will never see on the screen. 'What could have been' is a common theme in these a...

    The artwork and concept information was excellent, but I was disappointed that there wasn't more text on key characters. ...

    these books are perfect. tlj's edition is no exception. ...

    This ?Art of...? book was well-written but it lacked something that the last entry had. Or maybe was it because of the curse Rian Johnson took vs the one JJ Abrahams did? With the Art of TFA book they did have a blank canvas, and the magic of the book was laying the new charact...

    ??? ...

    In the absence of a more thorough "making of" book such as those by J.W. Rinzler for the original trilogy, this still provides a great insight into the creative process behind The Last Jedi. Just keep in mind that the focus is on the visual design, not so much on the development of the...

    Great book full of beautiful artwork and some insight into the creative process of the movie. One star off bc it's missing some stuff that i was really looking forward to seeing (they should've just delayed the publication if they were worried about spoilers). I seriously wish there wa...

    The artwork in this book was absolutely beautiful but I just wish there was more of it. This art book was not as organized as the TFA one, where things were split month by month. None the less I enjoyed reading and seeing how TLJ was created. ...

    Really liked this a lot! Like I said in my one update for this, I haven't seen the film yet, but I have read the spoilers (of course, I've said many times before that I purposefully spoil myself for things). I'm not sure how I feel about the spoilers, but I'm definitely not going to sa...

    The art in this book, like all art of Star Wars books, is great. The attention to detail is amazing. Besides, it is always fun to look at these kinds of books to see what kind of designs weren't used. However, the text portion was not as fun to read as it usually is for these types of ...

    Following the same format as Szostak?s ?The Art Of The Force Awakens? (and last years ?Rogue One? by Josh Kushins), this takes the story of ?The Last Jedi? from initial concepts (and also includes some spoiler moments from ?The Force Awakens?) right through production...

    This is filled with beautiful artwork and conceptual images from the making of the film. It features stunning visuals and interesting descriptions of the creative process. This is a fascinating work for any Star Wars fan. ...

    This is a good but not spectacular entry in ?Art of ____ movie? books. Quite a bit of the art is gorgeous, of course, and there are some interesting tidbits about the making of the film ? such as how they only built half the bridge of Snoke?s ship and then flipped the image...

    I was listening to movie reviews on NPR this morning and I enjoyed hearing what others thought of this movie and how it compared to the other films. The concept art and design was so greatly thought out and after hearing the reviews about what is going to happen, I can't wait to see th...

    I'm glad they included events from Episode 7 (to prevent spoilers) in this one though honestly you should be watching the movie before reading the art book. I'm expecting that the art book for Episode 9 will then have things from The Last Jedi in it because there are some scenes I want...

    The Star Wars universe is a vast and constantly growing thing. But did you ever stop to wonder what makes something look like it belongs in a Star Wars movie? In The Art of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, readers see the various stages of planning that went into creating new creatures, ve...

    I'm a sucker for The Art of ... books when it comes to the films I love. It's both a way of decoding intentional symbolism and of revelling in the world created by the story. The super serious commentary by the technical creators is always interesting although it often borders on prete...

    I always enjoy reading books like these that describe the creative processes behind my favorite films. This book highlighter, amongst other tings, General Leia, the planet Crait, Canto Bight, Rey and Luke and First Order ships. Within each section were drawings, paintings and digital a...
