Description

Modern Monomyth

Star Wars exploded onto our cinema screens in 1977, and the world has not been the same since.

After watching depressing and cynical movies throughout the early 1970s, audiences enthusiastically embraced the positive energy of the Star Wars universe as they followed moisture farmer Luke Skywalker on his journey through galaxies, meeting extraordinary characters like mysterious hermit Obi-Wan Kenobi, space pirates Han Solo and Chewbacca, bumbling droids C-3PO and R2-D2, bold Princess Leia and the horrific Darth Vader, servant of the dark, malevolent Emperor.

Writer, director, and producer George Lucas created the modern monomyth of our times, one that resonates with the child in us all. He achieved this by forming Industrial Light & Magic and developing cutting-edge special effects technology, which he combined with innovative editing techniques and a heightened sense of sound to give audiences a unique sensory cinematic experience.

Made with the full co-operation of George Lucas and Lucasfilm, this first volume covers the making of the original trilogy - Episode IV: A New Hope, Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi- and features an exclusive interview with Lucas.

The book is profusely illustrated with script pages, production documents, concept art, storyboards, on-set photography, stills, and posters.

“Love people. That’s basically all Star Wars is.”

– George Lucas
