So you have watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens and like many movies you have watched, you wonder what are the deleted or rejected scenes? Well, the hints may lie in the book The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (ISBN 1419717804, Abrams Books). This 256-page hardcover book takes you on a journey into the world of The Force Awaken, from the initial gathering of artists and production designers at Lucasfilm HQ to the production at Pinewood Studios to the conclusion of post-production at Industrial Light & Magic. It features exclusive interviews with the creative team, unused “blue sky” concept art, and boatloads of works of art like production paintings, concept sketches, storyboards, blueprints, and matte printings.
The book is a joint effort by Star Wars: The Force Awakens’s conceptual researcher and archivist, image activist Phil Szostak, and Academy Awards winning production designer Rick Carter (of Forrest Gump fame), whom himself have served as a co-production design of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. So, as you can see, both folks sure knows a thing or two about this epic seventh Star Wars flicks – from the inside. You can pick up a copy off Amazon as we speak for $23.84.
