J.W. Rinzler takes the release of Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy as occasion to take a look at some of Lucasbooks’ other upcoming nonfiction (and humor) releases. He has a bit to say on one of the new books James spotted last month, Star Wars Costumes: The Original Trilogy. It will include new photos of the costumes and interviews with costume designers John Mollo, Aggie Rodgers, and concept artist Nilo Rodis-Jamero. We even have a release date: October 28.
He also talks about the next Jeffrey Brown Star Wars book, Goodnight, Darth Vader, which we’ll start hearing more about soon – and Rinzler confirms there’s a fourth book in the pipeline as well.
Out Tuesday is Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy, J.W. Rinzler’s complete storyboard collection for A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. We got a peek at some of these a few weeks back, and of course there’s a trailer as well.
Meanwhile, Wednesday brings Star Wars #17 to the comic shops. The end is nigh: We know that series is ending at #20.
Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy, edited by J.W. Rinzler, will be in bookstores on May 13 (next Tuesday.) If you can’t wait, the prequel trilogy one was released last year.
With the release of Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy less than a month away, Vulture has a look at some of the earliest visuals for A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back.
The book, edited by Lucasfilm’s J.W. Rinzler, will be available on May 13.
