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

  • Virginia Mae

    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 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...

    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. ...

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

    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. ...

    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...

    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. ...

    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...

    If the movie captivated your imagination, then this book will continue your journey deeper into the film. There are some very interesting reveals about the origins of some of the scenes and plot points. Things you might attribute to Johnson originate from designers, producers, Intellec...

    There are many things to love about the book. The artwork is stunning and it is all beautifully presented. However, I am only giving it four stars rather than five because of how much is missing. There's very little artwork relating to major plot moments such as Rey and Kylo's force bo...

    This is a great book and I always love peering at the Art of Star Wars books. I love hearing how the production designers and all their teams' input on how they create the characters, ships, worlds, and look of our favorite universe. One big bummer is that they don't put everything in ...

    Weird to say I "read" an art book, but there is a surprisingly large amount of behind the scenes stories in here; it essentially describes the full process from script writing all the way to post-production. It delves into Johnson's writing process, specifically in regards to his estab...

    Gorgeous art, so interesting to see the early ideas all the way through to production. While I'm not much of a behind the scenes person I do really love the concept art. I would have preferred a bit more on the fleet and it's characters and a bit less of Canto Bight. But otherwise no c...

    Beautiful and inspiring! I love the behind the scenes insight into the development of the story. I would have loved to have seen so many of the ideas that didn't end up in the movie. The art is so often hauntingly gorgeous that this book is impossible to put down. ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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. ...

    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...

    If the movie captivated your imagination, then this book will continue your journey deeper into the film. There are some very interesting reveals about the origins of some of the scenes and plot points. Things you might attribute to Johnson originate from designers, producers, Intellec...

    There are many things to love about the book. The artwork is stunning and it is all beautifully presented. However, I am only giving it four stars rather than five because of how much is missing. There's very little artwork relating to major plot moments such as Rey and Kylo's force bo...

    This is a great book and I always love peering at the Art of Star Wars books. I love hearing how the production designers and all their teams' input on how they create the characters, ships, worlds, and look of our favorite universe. One big bummer is that they don't put everything in ...

    Weird to say I "read" an art book, but there is a surprisingly large amount of behind the scenes stories in here; it essentially describes the full process from script writing all the way to post-production. It delves into Johnson's writing process, specifically in regards to his estab...

    Gorgeous art, so interesting to see the early ideas all the way through to production. While I'm not much of a behind the scenes person I do really love the concept art. I would have preferred a bit more on the fleet and it's characters and a bit less of Canto Bight. But otherwise no c...

    Beautiful and inspiring! I love the behind the scenes insight into the development of the story. I would have loved to have seen so many of the ideas that didn't end up in the movie. The art is so often hauntingly gorgeous that this book is impossible to put down. ...

    I'll start by saying that I did not like The Last Jedi movie. That did not stop me from enjoying this book, however. It's fascinating to see how the artists and creative minds behind the movie create the planets, the droids, ships, and outfits of the movie. It's humbling to realize how...

    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. ...

    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...

    If the movie captivated your imagination, then this book will continue your journey deeper into the film. There are some very interesting reveals about the origins of some of the scenes and plot points. Things you might attribute to Johnson originate from designers, producers, Intellec...

    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...

    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. ...

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

    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. ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    If the movie captivated your imagination, then this book will continue your journey deeper into the film. There are some very interesting reveals about the origins of some of the scenes and plot points. Things you might attribute to Johnson originate from designers, producers, Intellec...

    There are many things to love about the book. The artwork is stunning and it is all beautifully presented. However, I am only giving it four stars rather than five because of how much is missing. There's very little artwork relating to major plot moments such as Rey and Kylo's force bo...

    This is a great book and I always love peering at the Art of Star Wars books. I love hearing how the production designers and all their teams' input on how they create the characters, ships, worlds, and look of our favorite universe. One big bummer is that they don't put everything in ...

    Weird to say I "read" an art book, but there is a surprisingly large amount of behind the scenes stories in here; it essentially describes the full process from script writing all the way to post-production. It delves into Johnson's writing process, specifically in regards to his estab...
