Numerous entertainment outlets, including Disney, are celebrating Comic-Con @ Home since this year’s San Diego Comic-Con event was cancelled due to the continued spread of the pandemic throughout the nation.

Today, as part of SDCC @ Home, the Walt Disney Company announced the upcoming release of a new Star Wars coffee table book – The Art of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge!

According to Disney Parks Blog, the stunning book features “never before seen artwork – as well as exclusive interviews about the land’s creation – from artists at Walt Disney Imagineering, Lucasfilm and many others, this book offers an inside look at what goes into making an immersive Star Wars destination.”

There is nowhere more experiential for a Star Wars fan than Galaxy’s Edge at either Disneyland park in California or Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.

The opportunity to go behind-the-scenes of Batuu and see the incredible concept art that led to the creation of Black Spire Outpost, the Millennium Falcon replica, and other Galaxy’s Edge landmarks is sure to be a visual treat.

The Art of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge was written by Star Wars: Women of the Galaxy author and Nerdist managing editor Amy Ratcliffe. Walt Disney Imagineering Portfolio Creative Executive Scott Trowbridge penned the foreward for the new Star Wars coffee table book.
