Modern Monomyth Star Wars exploded onto our cinema screens in 1977, and the world has not been the same since. After watching depressing and cynical movies throughout the early 1970s, audiences enthusiastically embraced the positive energy of the Star Wars universe as they followed moisture farmer Luke Skywalker on his journey through galaxies, meeting extraordinary characters like mysterious hermit Obi-Wan Kenobi, space pirates Han Solo and Chewbacca, bumbling droids C-3PO and R2-D2, bold Princess Leia and the horrific Darth Vader, servant of the dark, malevolent Emperor. Writer, director, and producer George Lucas created the modern monomyth of our times, one that resonates with the child in us all. He achieved this by forming Industrial Light & Magic and developing cutting-edge special effects technology, which he combined with innovative editing techniques and a heightened sense of sound to give audiences a unique sensory cinematic experience. Made with the full cooperation of George Lucas and Lucasfilm, this first volume covers the making of the original trilogy - Episode IV: A New Hope, Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi- and features an exclusive interview with Lucas. The book is profusely illustrated with script pages, production documents, concept art, storyboards, on-set photography, stills, and posters. "Love people. That's basically all Star Wars is." -- George Lucas

Review:

"My films have a tendency to promote personal self-esteem, a you-can-do-it attitude. Their message is: 'Don't listen to everyone else. Discover your own feelings and follow them. Then you can overcome anything.'"

Book Description Taschen, 2018. Condition: new. A cura di Duncan P. Modena, 2018; ril., pp. 620, cm 41,5x30. (Extra Large). Star Warsdeflagrò sui nostri schermi cinematografici nel 1977, e da allora il mondo non è più stato lo stesso. Dopo aver guardato film depressi e deprimenti per tutta la prima metà degli anni Settanta, il pubblico accolse entusiasticamente l'energia positiva trasmessa dall'universo di Guerre Stellari, seguendo l'estrattore di umidità Luke Skywalker nel suo viaggio intergalattico, e incontrando personaggi straordinari come il misterioso eremita Obi-Wan Kenobi, i pirati spaziali Han Solo e Chewbecca, i buffi androidi C-3PO e R2-D2, l'ardita Principessa Leilae il terribile Dart Fener, al servizio del malvagio Imperatore oscuro. Lo scrittore, regista e produttore George Lucasha creato così il monomito contemporaneo, capace di parlare al bambino in ciascuno di noi. Per far ciò ha creato Industrial Light & Magic e ha sviluppato tecnologie in grado di realizzare effetti speciali all'avanguardia, combinandole con tecniche di editing innovative e un audio amplificato per offrire al pubblico un'esperienza cinematografica e sensoriale unica. Realizzato insieme a George Lucas e alla Lucasfilm, questo primo volume degli archivi di Guerre Stellaricopre il making of the della trilogia originale - Episodio IV: Una nuova speranza, Episodio V: L'impero colpisce ancora e Episodio VI: Il ritorno dello Jedi - e include un'intervista esclusiva con Lucas. Il libro è inoltre riccamente illustrato con pagine tratte dalla sceneggiatura, documenti di produzione, concept art, storyboard, fotografie scattate sul set, fotogrammie poster.
