'Storyboards' Gives Glimpse Into Unseen Past of 'Star Wars' (Video)
Abrams Books releases an animated trailer for its forthcoming collection of the complete storyboards to the first three "Star Wars" movies.
While fans wait for more news about Star Wars: Episode VII or the animated Star Wars Rebels, they can revisit the galaxy far, far away in a way they’ve never seen it before -- with Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy, a new hardcover collection of the compete storyboard to the original Star Wars movies.
Scheduled for release next week, the Abrams Books collection -- edited by J.W. Rinzler, with a foreword from director Joe Johnston, who worked on storyboards and concept designs for the first three Star Wars movies -- includes never-before-seen storyboards from Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
To promote the book, Wired premiered an animated trailer, created by New York-based ad agency Outsider, that showcases some of the art contained therein -- including dramatically different looks for some familiar characters. (Seriously, who is that right at the very end?)
Watch the trailer below; Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy will be released in bookstores May 13.
