If you’ve been watching the new season of The Mandalorian, you might agree that this week’s new episode, The Passenger, may be the best episode yet. Heck, if we’d have seen it back in the 1970s and 1980s with the original trilogy, we might have rated it even better than the films. When we reviewed Abrams Books’ last behind the scenes look at the Star Wars franchise in The Art of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, we mentioned we were hoping that the publisher would get the rights for The Mandalorian series so we could get a close-up look at the costumes, props, and production art–and continue with a sixth volume of Abrams’ superb series of behind-the-scenes looks at the franchise. Well Star Wars fans are in luck. The Art of Star Wars: The Mandalorian is now available for pre-order here at Amazon, and we have a preview for borg readers below.
The Art of Star Wars: The Mandalorian is the official behind-the-scenes companion to the Disney+ series, covering the first season and featuring exclusive concept art, character and costume sketches, vehicle and creature designs, and interviews with key cast and crew including executive producer / showrunner / writer Jon Favreau and executive producer / director Dave Filoni. It includes a foreword by design supervisor Doug Chiang.
