Book Review: The Art of Star Wars - The Rise of Skywalker by Phil Szostak (Film/Non-Fiction)

Title: The Art of Star Wars - The Rise of Skywalker
Author: Phil Szostak
Publication Date: 31 March 2020
Bought Copy


The official behind-the-scenes concept, production, and post-production art for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Go inside the creative process behind the most anticipated film of the century. The latest trilogy in the Star Wars film series brings the Skywalker Saga to a close and The Art of The Rise of Skywalker will take readers into the creative process behind visualizing the epic worlds, creatures, characters, costumes, weapons and vehicles of the landmark conclusion more than 40 years in the making.

The Art of Star Wars - The Rise of Skywalker is a fitting conclusion to the new trilogy of books relating to the new trilogy of films. There is some gorgeous artwork here, making it a wonderful book to skim through. The text is okay, though I might have liked a little more from it at times, and, once again, the book feels a touch unbalanced with the material it includes versus what it omits. However, it is, overall, a pleasing completion to the set and is sure to please fans of the movies.
