Product description


“An incredibly in-depth look at all the alternate designs that could have ended up onscreen.”

“It’s gorgeous to look at and worth buying for that alone, but seeing so much preliminary concept art will just make you appreciate the finished product that much more.”

“Absolutely brilliant concept art.”

“It’s a visual feast of fantasy worlds, iconic characters, spectacular spacecraft and colossal creatures.”

The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens . . . is the rare art book that is actually worth going out and purchasing right now.”

“An inside look at [the] evolution and tracks the record-breaking film from its early concept art to its finishing touches.”
(Yahoo! Tech)

“It’s fascinating to look at some of the art that preceded the finished product.”

“Packed with breathtaking concept art revealing alternative visions and early ideas for the film.”
(Yahoo! Entertainment)

“Some of the best concept art and behind-the-scenes details have been collected in a book titled The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

“Each page . . . is a visual feast.”
(Entertainment Weekly)
