From the moment Star Wars hit the screen in 1977, audiences were fascinated and awed by the half-man/half-machine hybrid Darth Vader. In 1999, creator George Lucas began the story of how Anakin Skywalker grew up to train as a Jedi under Obi-Wan Kenobi, found love with the Queen of Naboo, Padmé Amidala, before turning to the dark side of his nature and becoming more machine than human.
Having initiated the development of digital technology, George Lucas saw how he could create new creatures and new worlds on a larger scale than ever before. He created the first digital blockbuster and met fierce opposition when he pushed for large-scale digital cameras, sets, characters and projection, all of which are now used in the industry. He essentially popularized the modern way of making movies.
This second volume, created with the full cooperation of George Lucas and Lucasfilm, covers the making of the prequel trilogy - Episode I The Phantom Menace, Episode II Attack of the Clones and Episode III Revenge of the Sith - and includes exclusive interviews with Lucas and his collaborators. The book is lavishly illustrated with script pages, production documents, concept art, storyboards, on-set photography, stills and posters.
