It arrives 27th April – our review will land on day of release – and StarWars.com allow us an early peek behind the covers of The Art of Galaxy’s Edge, the latest release from Abrams written by the wonderful Amy Ratcliffe and Imagineer Scott Trowbridge. The concept art, noodles, ideas and development of this ground-breaking project are all here, and according to Amy it was a mammoth project to undertake.
“Bringing The Art of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge together was such an undertaking from everyone involved,” author Amy Ratcliffe tells StarWars.com. “I conducted a ton of interviews with Walt Disney Imagineering and Lucasfilm geniuses, and I was continually grateful for how available everyone made themselves. And also I was super impressed with everyone’s long-term memory as we went back years and years to the beginning of ideas for what would become Galaxy’s Edge!”
For Scott Trowbridge, portfolio creative executive, Walt Disney Imagineering, The Art of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is a chance to show fans the evolution of ideas and the work of many unsung heroes. “While guests and audiences always get to see the finished product, I’m excited to be able to share this rare glimpse into the creative process and to share how Imagineering develops a concept from the earliest brainstorms and sketches, to developing those into fully fleshed out and buildable designs,” he says. “I think that it might be surprising to learn that for every element that is eventually built, there may be dozens and dozens of explorations and options that led up to that final version.
