It’s happening! A Star Wars Rebels art book by Dark Horse Books and Lucasfilm will be arriving later this year, and we couldn’t be happier about the news.
The concept art galleries in the Star Wars Rebels episode guides were some of my favorites to explore, so imagine a book that highlights even more never-before-seen content as well as commentary from the show creators, like Dave Filoni, Simon Kinberg, Carrie Beck, and more. It’s a Star Wars fan’s dream come true!
Here’s the description as provided by Amazon:
An incredible hardcover amassing art and creator commentary chronicling four seasons of adventure in a galaxy far, far away!
In the early days of the rebellion, a tight-knit group of rebels from various backgrounds banded together against all odds to do their part in the larger mission of defeating the Galactic Empire, sparking hope across the galaxy.
The award-winning team from Lucasfilm Animation brought the beloved occupants of the Ghost into our homes five years ago, now, take a step behind-the-scenes to witness the journey from paper to screen with The Art of Star Wars Rebels. Featuring never-before-seen concept art and process pieces along with exclusive commentary from the creative team behind the show, Dark Horse Books and Lucasfilm proudly present the official look inside one of the galaxy’s most beloved shows.
Written by Dan Wallace, the book is scheduled to be released on October 1.
You can currently place your pre-order on Amazon.
We have visual guides for the first two seasons, but this promises to be something more. It’ll be amazing to see the evolution of the artwork and thought process throughout the development of the series. Personally, I’m also looking forward to any sketches by Dave Filoni, especially for the later seasons.
This announcement also gives us hope that a new and updated Star Wars: The Clone Wars art book might be a possibility in the near future. We also don’t want it to stop there. A Star Wars Resistance art book would also be much appreciated, and if at all possible, an art book based on the LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures animated series. All of these shows have their own individual style and beauty, so here’s hoping The Art of Star Wars Rebels is just the first of many.
