Take a Look at Never-Before-Seen Star Wars Art in Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy

That's a face only Grand Moff Tarkin could love.

Man, there’s been a lot of Star Wars info to talk about lately, but let’s not forget where it all began. The book Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy will be available on May 13, and it’s got the complete set of storyboards from the original films including never-before-seen concept art, storyboards for deleted scenes, and what looks like the most frightening Darth Vader I’ve ever seen.

I think that hole is for feeding on your nightmares.

Here’s what you can expect out of the full book, courtesy of its Amazon product description:

For the first time, Lucasfilm has opened its Archives to present the complete storyboards for the original Star Wars trilogy—the world-changing A New Hope and its operatic sequels, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi—as well as never-before-published art from early conceptual and deleted scenes.

From the opening chase above Tatooine in A New Hope to the Battle of Endor in Jedi, this book presents the visual inspiration behind now-iconic moments. Readers can finally see a full set of storyboards by legendary artist Joe Johnston, as well as early boards for Episode IV by Alex Tavoularis and for Episode V by Ivor Beddoes, rarely seen Episode VI boards by Roy Carnon, and Ralph McQuarrie’s never-before-seen storyboards for Episode V.
