"My films have a tendency to promote personal self-esteem, a you-can-do-it attitude. Their message is: 'Don't listen to everyone else. Discover your own feelings and follow them. Then you can overcome anything.'" - George Lucas

Star Wars exploded onto our cinema screens in 1977, and the world has not been the same since. After watching depressing and cynical movies throughout the early 1970s, audiences enthusiastically embraced the positive energy of the Star Wars universe as they followed moisture farmer Luke Skywalker on his journey through a galaxy far, far away, meeting extraordinary characters like mysterious hermit Obi-Wan Kenobi, space pirates Han Solo and Chewbacca, loyal droids C-3PO and R2-D2, bold Princess Leia and the horrific Darth Vader, servant of the dark, malevolent Emperor.

Writer, director, and producer George Lucas created the modern monomyth of our time, one that resonates with the child in us all. He formed Industrial Light & Magic to develop cutting-edge special effects technology, which he combined with innovative editing techniques and a heightened sense of sound to give audiences a unique sensory cinematic experience.

In this first volume, made with the full cooperation of Lucasfilm, Lucas narrates his own story, taking us through the making of the original trilogy—Episode IV: A New Hope, Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi—and bringing fresh insights into the creation of a unique universe. Complete with script pages, production documents, concept art, storyboards, on-set photography, stills, and posters, the XXL-sized Star Wars book is an authoritative exploration of the original saga as told by its creator.

Big, heavy, and that high quality paper and ink smell make browsing through the photos a wonderful experience. And I haven’t even started to read the text. There is a smaller and much cheaper version on Amazon but that’s no fun 🤩. If you’re an OT fan just get it. You’ll love it.
