Star Wars: Behind The Scenes: Book II: Designing The Galaxy

The sequel is here! Your "ultimate look" was not complete...


1. Introduction

Instead of handing finished screenplays over to art departments, George Lucas worked closely with highly talented concept artists to develop Star Wars characters, vehicles, and planets while the movie's stories were still in progress.

During the production of Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, design supervisor Ralph McQuarrie recalled that George "wanted to get what he could see in his mind on the screen. I thought that what he expected from me was the look that he hoped for--the light, the textures, the excitement he saw in his mind's eye."

The approved concept artworks served as visual guides for the designers of the Star Wars saga's many costumes, sets, and models.

In The Phantom Menace, concept designer Doug Chiang says, "I realized that this was going to be something new and not just a rework of the earlier material."
