Wow! That's really all I can say after opening this book for the first time. It is filled with wonderful behind the scenes pictures, interviews, storyboards, I could go on and on! I highly recommend spending the extra cash on the hardcover as you get 48 extra pages of the original storyboards for Star Wars, as well as the big man himself, George Lucas, speaking for the first time about the expanded universe. My favourite part has to be the unknown stories about the casting process as well as details on early versions of the script. There are so many ways this movie could have turned out differently(for the worse in my opinion), and it took a lot of hard work to bring the movie we all know and love to the big screen. Did you know that Star Wars premiered in only 32 theatres across the United States? There weren't many people who had faith in this "little space movie"..but thankfully George Lucas persevered, and brought us a legend.
