CLASSIC ART: JEDI LEAP!
An early version of either Jedi Knight Qui-Gon Jinn or Obi-Wan Kenobi makes an escape leap from the fearsome Darth Maul, in a classic pre-production storyboard for EPISODE I- just one of many thousands of intense visually stunning pencil drawing boards created for the film, and subsequent episodes, as the new Prequel Trilogy geared up for filming.
Now, a vital selection of that material is being assembled for the first time in another wondrous STAR WARS behind the scenes book from J.W. Rinzer and LUCAS BOOKS (with a foreword from conceptual artist Iain McCaig), published by ABRAMS: STAR WARS STORYBOARDS: THE PREQUEL TRILOGY.
