    “These stories were something that I had been working on for a long time. I didn’t know it would be for television. But I loved the idea of doing a story [after the fall of the Empire in Return of the Jedi.” Jon Favreau This book will appeal to three, possibly overlapping, sets of people: fans of Stars Wars, those who have noticed and liked the art displayed with the closing credits of The Mandalorian television series, and those curious about the creation prop and set designs.

But I loved the idea of doing a story [after the fall of the Empire in Return of the Jedi.” Jon Favreau This book will appeal to three, possibly overlapping, sets of people: fans of Stars Wars, those who have noticed and liked the art displayed with the closing credits of The Mandalorian television series, and those curious about the creation prop and set designs. All three should be satisfied with one caveat: the text font is so tiny and thin it impedes reading the text. So what, you say, this is about the art. Well, yes, but the text deserved better treatment. “While flipping through these pages I am transported back in time, not just to 2018 but all the way back to 1977. We’ve honored George Lucas’s design philosophy in order to realize Jon Favreau’s bold new vision.” Doug Chiang, executive creative director The book follows the creative process tracing The Mandalorian back to its roots in spaghetti westerns, samurai classics, and Boba Fett and IG-11. The artifacts spring from World War Two and Gulf War aircraft, ancient firearms, and assorted machine parts. The evolution of the title character’s armor and the Yoda child are especially interesting. “Our ambitions can make the Force into something terrible even when our intentions might have been good. The Mandalorian has a choice: do his job … or take this lost child in and protect it, become it’s guardian.” Dave Filoni

    I watch each episode's credits for the music and the concept art so it's great that we can see an entire book of the art. Definitely worth checking out.

The book opens with a compelling foreword by Dou With the second season of The Mandalorian inching past its midway point, the release of The Art of Star Wars: The Mandalorian (Season One) tie-in book is perfectly timed. The Art of Star Wars books always provide a rare opportunity to look behind the scenes at the developmental processes involved with creating Star Wars and Abrams Books’ newest release is a must-have. READ THE FULL REVIEW AT YOUR MONEY GEEK: https://yourmoneygeek.com/review-the-... The book opens with a compelling foreword by Doug Chiang, Lucasfilm’s executive creative director, discussing his work on The Mandalorian and how Jon Favreau’s pitch for the series made him smile. His sentiments about the series are a glowing reflection of his fifteen years of involvement in designing for the Star Wars universe. If there were any doubts in the minds of viewers — The Mandalorian is made by fans of the franchise.  From there The Art of Star Wars: The Mandalorian is written by Phil Szostak, who goes through the inception of the series, the pitch, and the creatives that bring it to life, burying tidbits of information among full spreads of gorgeous illustrations and concept art. He delves into the creative processes of both Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, as well as the way in which the art informed the tone and style of the show.  The book features insightful quotes from Favreau, the executive producer, showrunner, and writer, as well as Filoni, executive producer and director for The Mandalorian. Their passion and love for the franchise is apparent in what they have been able to create with the first-ever live-action Star Wars television series. Some are cheeky little comments that are sure to amuse fans of the creators and their past work.  Through the course of the 250-page book, Szostak takes readers through each episode. He starts each new chapter with several paragraphs of background information; discussing the characters and creatures introduced during the episode, and he even includes details about when each episode was filmed. One of the most interesting details revealed in these sections was that the series shot episodes out of order. In fact, Chapter 5: The Gunslinger, was the last episode filmed during the production of the first season of The Mandalorian. These are the kind of details that Star Wars fans love to find out.  Each illustration, sketch, storyboards, and sculpt is paired with detailed captions with quotes from the artists, reasons behind why specific versions were chosen, and details about their creation. Fans of “Baby Yoda” will enjoy seeing early concept art for the Child — some of which are downright terrifying, while others include top knots and adorable baby feet. For those who follow Szostak on Twitter, some of the concept art will be familiar, but having all of it bound into one collection is truly remarkable. The Art of Star Wars: The Mandalorian is page-after-page of jaw-dropping art, some of which is so detailed you will find yourself wondering if you’re staring at a still from the series. Be sure to flip through every page — including the acknowledgments! You won't want to miss out on any of the art in this book.  Don’t miss out on never-before-seen concept art that brings the magic of The Mandalorian to life. Pick up your copy of Abrams Books’ The Art of Star Wars: The Mandalorian on December 1st.

    A great trip through the season in art and concepts. There are some very talented people that work on Star Wars.

    I really enjoyed this collection, as I have all of the art of star wars books. Some great behind the scenes info combined with some fantastic art (Particularly glad to have Chiang working on this series as I just adore his work...) One thing that I found intriguing (and they touched on it in the book) is there is a lot less art that looks drastically different than what the episodes ended up looking like.

    Quite possibly the best of the "Art of..." books so far. Not only did I like the forward, I liked all of the text and found it interesting and relevant. I also liked the thorough/detailed captioning. The art quality is great and the breadth of what they included was very good. There were a couple of areas where I'd have liked to see more, but maybe they showed everything they have (I don't know if Esposito was envisioned as the Big Bad from the get-go, for instance...).

But if you like concept art and seeing the progression from idea to on-screen, you should like this. My one quibble is that the quality of the paper felt a little inferior to what they've used in prior Star Wars "Art of" books. It's not bad/flimsy, but just didn't feel quite as robust to me.

    Great!! One of my favorite parts of the series is seeing the amazing concept art at the end of each episode, so it was a no-brainer for me to get this book. I loved seeing the character design evolve from version 1 to the final design we see in the series. It was fascinating to read about the movies and stories that inspired The Mandalorian, and how much they deferred to the original trilogy for the way the series was going to look. If you love The Mandalorian, this book is for you!!! "This is the Great!!

    Wonderful addition to any collection of ‘the art of’ books. Printed on a nice heavy stock & the same dimensions as the previous ‘Star Wars art of books’ excepting of course the originals from the 70’s & 80’s which are more of a rectangular book format. Lots & lots of behind the scenes artwork & the thinking of the crew about tying ‘The Mandalorian’ into the existing universe post ‘Return of the Jedi’ ( I don’t remember blurgs being in the Ewok special?) Cool factoid! Can’t wait to get my hands on Wonderful addition to any collection of ‘the art of’ books.

    This was a fantastic look into all of the work that goes into a single episode of The Mandalorian. I had no idea how many rounds character, costume, and set designs went through before filming. All of the concept art and early designs were simply stunning and I recognized a lot of them from the end credits. All of the commentary given by producers and the artists and creators really helped bring it together. I was just blown away by how talented and dedicated these people are to their work.

    Phil Szostak’s Art of Star Wars books continue to be the high water mark for behind the scenes books on film, providing a look into the imagination behind Star Wars not just though the artists’ works but through their words as well. Thrilled that Dave Filoni is finally a major presence in one of Szostak’s books. My only about this book is it once again inflames my desire for a work on the art of Clone Wars or Rebels done in the same thorough format.

    As a Mandalorian fan I must simply say I loved this book! It is filled with concept art from every chapter of Season 1. The text also gives a behind the scenes look into the making of the Mandalorian. I enjoyed this so much I picked up the Art of Rogue One book - the only other Disney Star Wars production that captures the essence of as Star Wars since the corporate mouse took over.

    A really cool collection that gives fans insight into the creative process and art development for the Disney+ series. I always found myself enjoying the concept illustrations included over the show's end credits, and this book is chock full of them. A great peek behind the scenes for Star Wars fans, and the presentation is beautiful.

    Odd, unexpected and unfortunate that the book does not include the (usually quite wonderful) concept art that shows during the credits of the television episodes. Otherwise quite interestingly detailed about the process of using illustrations to influence costume , creature, set and object design - even inspire story elements. I probably would have preferred larger illustrations, even if that meant including fewer in the book, but others are likely to have different preferences.

    I told my husband that I really liked the art work that showed at the end of each show of The Mandalorian and would like to have some of it. So, for Christmas he surprised me with this. It's a beautiful book and I've been reading through the stories of the production and the evolution of the ideas.

    Just finished reading The Art of The Mandalorian and really enjoyed it. I am a big fan of all the Art Of Star Wars books that I have been reading since the late 70s, and this one certainly didn’t disappoint either. Such impressive, creative work!

    A wonderful collection of pre-viz art from the first season. The only thing missing is all of the images shown during the end credits. Some are included, but not all.
