"Episode VIII" ratchets up the body count in new and stunning ways, but here are the ones that left us gobsmacked.
The Last Jedi has arrived in theaters, offering an expansive new vision of the Star Wars universe as conceived by writer-director Rian Johnson . To accomplish his vision, Johnson teamed with production designer Rick Heinrichs ( Fargo , The Big Lebowski , The Nightmare Before Christmas , Captain America: The First Avenger ) and Lucasfilm’s in-house team of “visualists.” Together they dreamed up new planets stocked with never-seen species, original characters, sleek starships, and lots of porgs. Their concept art, costume sketches, and storyboards have been collected alongside author Phil Szostak’s detailed commentary in the new The Art of Star Wars: The Last Jedi . Yahoo Entertainment got a sneak peek at the book and exclusively presents some of the highlights here. __________________________ All images via The Art of Star Wars: The Last Jedi by Phil Szostak, and Lucasfilm Ltd. © Abrams Books, 2017; © 2017 Lucasfilm Ltd. and TM.
