Read The Art of Star Wars: The Last Jedi Online Free - 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.

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 say anything...

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 books. The...

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. Lucasfilm and Abrams have t...

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 to show the other side...

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 this movie! W...

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 oodles of eas...

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 wanted so badly...

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 the directo...
