The Art of Star Wars:
A New Hope / Special Edition
Published by Del Ray
Scott's Rating: 4 out of 4
This book is the Star Wars movie script with all of the cut scenes still included! In this book are pictures of models, costumes, paintings, sketches, etc. It's all in this very nice book!
If you are going to read the Star Wars script, this is the way to do it. The book would be worth it for the pictures alone. It has a lot of behind the scenes factoids as well (such as the fact that in the cockpit of the Blockade Runner there is a mini SW poster and a Playboy centerfold). The pictures of the props will either stun you with their detail or amaze you with their simplicity. The script also includes the cut Biggs scenes, the cut Jabba scenes (to be seen in the Special Edition), and other cool stuff. Another cool feature is art by young Star Wars fans mailed to Lucas, SW based comic strips, and SW comic covers. A must for SW Fans!
I can't think of anything bad about this offhand except for the price. $25. That means you'd have to pay $75 for the entire trilogy. Worth it? If you can afford it!
Realizing how long ago it was since you first saw SW. Oh, boy.
