By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Feb. 12 2009
Format: Paperback
Length: 0:22 Mins
This art book is noticeably better that the already good The Art of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

This time round, even more details are added to the concept art. Most of the sketches are now coloured. As usual, the pages are filled to the brim with character designs, environment paintings, storyboards, sculptures and ships. All drawings are captioned by the individual artists on the idea they are trying to bring across.

In some ways, the character designs and sketches look better on book than in the movie. The environment paintings are just epic.

Included also, at the back of the book, is the full script for the movie.

This book is highly recommended to sci-fi artists, concept artists and of course Star Wars fans.

There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.

I was hyped up for Episode 1 only to be let down by one 3-worded mistake: Jar Jar Binks. Of course, if you've read my review for The Art of Episode 1, the you know that I still thought well of that book, despite certain Gungan monstrosities. The Art of Episode 2 proves that the Stars Wars films are like leftovers from dinner, they just taste better and better. Aside from showing the reader sketches of returning locations (Such as Tatootine, Naboo, and Coruscant), it also expands on these locations by showing us things like Coruscant's lower levels, and new areas of Naboo. Added to this is artwork for two new planets in the Star Wars universe: the dry and desolate Geonosis and the watery and storm-shrouded Kamino. Also there are sketches of a certain army cloned from a certain bounty hunter whose son captured a certain Han Solo. If you're a Star Wars addict then get this book as soon as humanly possible because the only Art of Star Wars book better than this will probably be The Art of Episode 3.

One of the saddest things about seeing the Star Wars prequels taking such a drubbing from critics and fans is knowing how hard the artists and designers work to make these movies go from concept to the finished film. I admit it; I am one of those rare fans who apparently enjoyed Episodes I and II, and I owned this book several weeks before Attack of the Clones was released in May 2002.
The book is beautifully designed and Mark Cotta Vaz's accompanying text to the conceptual art is authoritative yet accesible even to younger readers. The many designs -- even those not used in the movie -- evoke memories of the earlier trilogy's Art of...series, and one can see the "evolution" of the many ship and costume designs to what fans call Classic Star Wars. (To me, the most interesting "fact" is that Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter's lines will be echoed in the evil Empire's Imperial Star Destroyer.)
The screenplay by George Lucas and Jonathan Hales (who also wrote the story for The Scorpion King) is included. It is the complete "before edits were made to the film" draft, which allows readers to catch glimpses of Padme Amidala's family and other scenes that were filmed but later deleted. (Those scenes are included on the extra features disc of the Episode II DVD set, but some fans may only have the VHS version instead.)
For Star Wars fans and film art aficionados, this book is definitely a keeper.

Nice art.
Small text and caption numbers.
Read in bright light.
Nice tie-in of illustrations to screenplay that may be missed by some. It's pretty subtle.
Result: Though the book is poorly designed, the illustrations are beautiful making The Art of Star Wars The Attack of the Clones a must for any Star Wars and Sci Fi movie fan.

Read the book STAR WARS attack of the clones there is a bounty hunter trying to kill the senator of naboo and there is a big fight against the sith on the planet of genosis. I will not stop liking star wars.

It misses him so much, I knocked it down three stars. Chiang did such a good job on the Episode I art, and in this one he appeared sloppy and rushed. I love the art of the star wars universe. And the best works are those "90% there, it's almost what the movie will look like" paintings by Ralph McQuarrie. And this collection had not one painting like that.
I think the other reason I was underimpressed with this art was that the Original trilogy art really projected a pure creative pulling stuff out of thin air type art. THis art is less inspired and more forced. Almost a rationale "fill in the gaps" of how things would look between episode 1 and 4.
However, the one bright part of the book is the conceptual art regarding what the Sith Lord of Episode II would look like. I am so sorry they didn't go with any of the concepts (with the exception of the curved lightsaber). These were AWESOME designs,
That and the script gain back a star. 5 - 3 + 1= 3 stars.

One of the best of the AOTC companion books, The Art of Star Wars: Attack Of The Clones (written by Mark Cotta Vaz) is a fascinating book, including many different faecets of production design and artwork. These boks give an interesting insight to the huge effort that goes into Star Wars films, with many visualisations that never made it to the screen, and poster art by Star Wars veteran Drew Struzan. The best part is, you get the entire screenplay, including all the deleted scenes and dialouge. The provided info on the entire evolution of production artwork, to models to visual design and then to film is endlessly fascinating, with a wealth of amazing sketches and design artwork.
