Lauded Star Wars author James Luceno returns to pen an intense tale of ambition and betrayal that sets the stage for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. War is tearing the galaxy apart. For years the Republic and the Separatists have battled across the stars, each building more and more deadly technology in an attempt to win the war. As a member of Chancellor Palpatine's top secret Death Star project, Orson Krennic is determined to develop a superweapon before their enemies can. And an old friend of Krennic's, the brilliant scientist Galen Erso, could be the key. Galen's energy-focused research has captured the attention of both Krennic and his foes, making the scientist a crucial pawn in the galactic conflict. But after Krennic rescues Galen, his wife, Lyra, and their young daughter, Jyn, from Separatist kidnappers, the Erso family is deeply in Krennic's debt. Krennic then offers Galen an extraordinary opportunity: to continue his scientific studies with every resource put utterly at his disposal. While Galen and Lyra believe that his energy research will be used purely in altruistic ways, Krennic has other plans that will finally make the Death Star a reality. Trapped in their benefactor's tightening grasp, the Ersos must untangle Krennic's web of deception to save themselves and the galaxy itself.

"Star Wars" and comics share a history as long as "The Star Wars Saga" itself: "Star Wars" debuted both on the silver screen and the printed page in 1977, when, a few months after the first film's premiere, Marvel Comics began publishing a monthly series inspired by the characters, worlds, and adventures of "Episode IV: A New Hope". Soon, a daily comic strip followed, and now, more than three decades later, countless ongoing and limited comic-book series from Dark Horse Comics continue to enrich and expand the "Star Wars" Galaxy. "Star Wars Art: Comics" brings together the very best artwork from the entire history of "Star Wars" comics publishing, including original and finished art from the top comics artists, cartoonists, painters, and illustrators working in the industry. Hand-selected and curated by George Lucas, this volume includes pencil roughs, inked pages, concept art, and fully painted covers and interior art from the original Marvel Comics series, "The Star Wars" comic strip, more than two decades of "Star Wars" comics from Dark Horse Comics, and officially licensed Japanese manga. Featuring the work of Howard Chaykin, Al Williamson, Gene Colan, Dave Cockrum, Drew Struzan, Carmine Infantino, and many more, "Star Wars Art: Comics" is a celebration of the worldwide inspiration that is Star Wars, as well as a look at the creative process behind the page.

The unprecedented box office success of 1977's Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, and the ensuing pop culture phenomenon, took Lucasfilm by surprise. Fans had to wait nearly a year for the first action figures to appear. But as of 1978, an industry unto itself was born, consisting of Star Wars books, trading cards, magazines, video games and merchandise. Thirty five years later, these printed book and magazine covers, trading cards and collector's items continue to expand the limits and celebrate the iconography of the Star Wars galaxy through painting, illustration and graphic design. Now, the third book in the Star Wars Art series, Illustration, collects the very best of these artworks, as curated by George Lucas: more than three decades of book jackets; art from StarWars Insider magazine and role playing guides; limited edition prints; Topps' Star Wars Galaxy trading cards; marketing artwork from LucasArts video games and Lucas Licensing; and one of a kind works generated for collectible merchandise. Featuring previously unpublished, rarely seen, or fan favourite art from John Alvin, Brett Blevins, Rick Buckler Jr., Dave Dorman, Tommy Lee Edwards, Hugh Fleming and many others, Star Wars Art: Illustration celebrates the wide range of styles, influences, and tones that illustrators have brought to bear on a galaxy far, far away ...

In 1997, as George Lucas worked to complete the script for what would become Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, he enlisted the talents of some of the greatest storyboard artists of the modern era; Peter Chang, Benton Jew, Jay Shuster, Ian McCaig, Ryan Kaful, Terryl Whitlatch and Ed Natividad, to complete conceptual storyboards that would inform the development of the final shooting script, as well as the finished film. Working from Lucas's ideas for scenes and sequences, these artists produced beautiful drawings that helped lay the foundations for the worlds, characters, shots and sequences of the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy. For Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, Lucas again turned to this approach, working with conceptual storyboard artists Warren Drummond, Kirk Henderson, and Ian McCaig (Episode II), and Iain McCaig and Derrick Thompson (Episode III) during preproduction to tease out story germs and inspire the screenwriting process. Together, these conceptual storyboards show early takes on favorite scenes, alternate, unused approaches to character designs and environments and entirely different approaches to key moments; more than 80 percent of these storyboards offer an intriguing "what if?" view on alternate directions the Prequel Trilogy could have taken; like silent comic books, they have an energy and rhythm all their own that is fascinating to explore. Now, for the first time, Lucasfilm has opened its archives to present the complete conceptual storyboards for Episodes I, II, and III. Starting with Episode I, Star Wars Storyboards: The Prequel Trilogy collects the conceptual storyboards for all three films together in one striking volume, along with relevant excerpts from early drafts and shooting scripts, to provide context for these pre-visual guides which are, in their own right, stunning, action-and-adventure-packed images.
