Get an inside look at the making of Star Wars: Frames, a new two-volume box set release from Abrams, featuring individual frames — selected by George Lucas himself — from every Star Wars film. According to Lucasfilm’s Howard Roffman, Lucas had the idea to look at the Star Wars films one frame at a time, an idea that evolved into this collection.
Indeed, Lucas went through every film, selecting iconic shots but also including some unexpected imagery. Taken together, these books present the Star Wars story in an entirely new, beautiful way.
Lucasfilm executive editor J.W. Rinzler calls Star Wars: Frames “a truly unique work of craftsmanship and an essential part of the Star Wars saga.”
About the book
After George Lucas finished work on Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, he wanted to look back on the Star Wars saga with an entirely new point of view: isolating stills, or frames, from each of the six Star Wars films, focusing on them intensely as works of photography and design, and reproducing them in a book. For two years Lucas went through more than 150,000 frames per film, editing more than 1 million frames down to the 1,416 images that now comprise Star Wars: Frames, a testament to the hard work, craftsmanship, and dedication evident in every frame of every film. Star Wars: Frames brings together Lucas’s personal shot-by-shot selections into a lavishly designed two-volume hardcover set—one volume for the Original Trilogy and one volume for the Prequel Trilogy. For collectors and fans, Star Wars: Frames is the ultimate look on this grand project devoted to a cinematic phenomenon—and the ultimate Star Wars collector’s tome.
