The Art of Star Wars The Madalorian Book First Impressions

This post contains an affiliate link to Amazon.com.

A few months ago, I found The Art of Star Wars The Madalorian for sale at Walmart. I purchased nearly every single art book I own from Amazon because the prices are less than buying them in store. When I looked at The Madalorian art book, I realized the price of the book was similar to Amazon’s. Since the prices were similar, I decided to buy the book in store. That way I wouldn’t need to wait for it to come in the mail.

I have yet to read the book cover to cover, but I still wanted to write a first impressions post about The Art of Star Wars The Madalorian. I originally planed to publish this post on May 4th (Star Wars Day AKA May the 4th Be With You), but I was unable to finish writing it in time.

Here is what the front looks like….

At the time I took these photographs, I didn’t take the price tag sticker off the book. As you can see, it cost me $27.94 without tax.

The back looks like this…

And after opening the front of the book, the reader is greeted by a two page spread of an concept art for setting the mood and tone for a scene…

There are many concept art illustrations through out the book, including this one with the title of the book and author credits…

The book has a forward by Doug Chiang, the vice president and executive creative director of Lucasfilms, the studio that produces the Star Wars franchise as well as other movies and franchises by George Lucas…

The concept art is so beautifully detailed. I really love it.

In addition to the art, there are stories from the making of The Mandalorian including the story about pitching the idea for the series…

The Art of The Mandalorian also includes concept art for the character’s costumes…

And other characters in the series, including the child…

 

My first impression of the book is that it is extremely thorough about showing the production of the series without giving too much of the series away. I could be wrong about this book containing important spoilers, but I don’t think it gives away so much of the plot that it causes anyone who has not see the series to know what’s going on it without watching it.

As for how it compares to other art books from movies and TV shows I own, I honestly think it’s one of the best art books I own. It’s full of information and art from rough sketches from brainstorming sessions to formal, full color concept art to story board art. The book covers the first season only, which I don’t mind. I do hope Lucasfilm and Disney will make another art book of The Mandalorian for future seasons!

Even though I have yet to actually read this book, looking though the book and seeing what the book contains makes me excited to actually read it. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves The Mandalorian and wants to know more about how it was made.

Well, that’s all for now! Thank you for reading!
