A lot of Star Wars news has been coming out of San Diego Comic Con, and when the Star Wars publishing panel took to stage we got some cool new info and reveals. One of the big reveals of the panel was cover artwork for the upcoming book The Art Of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The ‘ART OF‘ series is one of my personal favorite aspects of Star Wars Publishing, always showing the ridiculous amounts of concept art the talented people at Lucasfilm produce for each film. I’ve been collecting these gorgeous big printed tomes ever since Star Wars: A New Hope, with The Art of The Empire Strikes Back still holding a favorite place in heart.
The Art of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is definitely one I’m going to pick up when it arrives to get a glimpse into the conceptual stages of Rogue One and the artwork that inspired the film. The cover art features artwork of K-2S0
The book is written by Josh Kushins with forwards by Doug Chiang, Niel Lamont and Gareth Edwards. It is slated for release on December 16th, the same day Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters
