The Making of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith by J.W. RinzlerOne of the things that is immediately striking about Making of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith is how this book is unlike many of the other Making of books out there. I think it really tries to capture the drama that is inherent in making a movie. This does come at the expense of not having a lot of information on how special effects or difficult shots were done. The book also doesnt have that overly positive tone where everyone who worked on this movie is a genius which is meant to appeal to fans. I love Star Wars, but I still found this to be a nice change of pace. This format also works well for Star Wars because of George Lucass process which leaves a lot of uncertainty in the movie, especially until post production starts. The beginning of the book is also particularly interesting because it shows how the amazing art/visual aspects of the movies are created.
The Making of Revenge of the Sith has a nice mix of images as well. Many of them are set photos which have a lot of green screen backgrounds, but there is some concept art too. The only area where this book could be improved is that it tries to capture the monotony of the mid to late shoots. Everyone knows what theyre doing and are just trying to power through it. The book dwells too much on this less interesting part. While it certainly captures how those on set feel, much less time and space could have been devoted to this subject. Ive been reading quite a few Making of and Art books lately and this is one book that I think anybody interested in how films are made will like. It really shows the process and potential pitfalls of making a movie. Of course, Star Wars fans will also love seeing how the best of the prequels was made too.

To get the best angles of the amazing atmospheric battle in Episode III , Anakin and Obi-Wan had to dangle their legs outside of the cockpit to keep their knees out of the shot. Jackson wanted.
It would stand to reason that the weeks following Star Wars Celebration would be light on Star Wars news, considering those five days gave the fans a movie title, a new trailer, lots of details about the Mandalorian TV show and the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge theme park attraction, and all kinds of other smaller tidbits.
