Amy Richau, writing over at StarWars.com takes a look at The Art of Star Wars Rebels and chats with veteran author Dan Wallace about the book and the series behind it.
Dan Wallace: Rebels art director Kilian Plunkett was my ticket inside the process of how the show decided on its signature look. I was able to get his insights on design for creatures, tech, starships, and more, and he is heavily quoted throughout the book in reference to the show’s artistic decisions.
StarWars.com: What was your relationship to Star Wars Rebels when you started writing this book? After you knew you would be writing this project, did you re-watch any of the series?
Dan Wallace: I’ve been a Rebels fan since the beginning, and even before the beginning! During Season One of Rebels I wrote two tie-in books: Ezra’s Rebel Journal and Sabine: My Rebel Sketchbook, and as part of that I got to read the early scripts before the show was officially released. Of course, I kept up on the show as it aired, and you’re definitely right that working on The Art of Star Wars Rebels required a lot of rewatching of certain episodes and sequences.
