Okay, honestly I wanted more info about the First Order and Kylo Ren, and Hux was like, barely mentioned. But I understand that most of the movie is not about that.

Has some never before seen art from The Force Awakens also. Several paragraphs about changes to the story that didn't make it in the movie. Beautiful artwork. Alternate scene and scenery lay outs and ship designs and costume, etc.

Okay, honestly I wanted more info about the First Order and Kylo Ren, and Hux was like, barely mentioned. But I understand that most of the movie is not about that. I guess I was hoping for more bonus content like you would see on the DVD edition or something- details about how more of the scenes were filmed, more about the characters and some insider info about how the creators feel about those characters. There was a little bit of that, but more about the setting challenges and Rian Johnson's gushing about how natural and fun it was to work on Star Wars and the many many MANY decisions to be made about luxury ships and outfits. I wanted more about lightsabers and action sequences and got more about the Caretakers and the Canto Bight residents than I really wanted to know. But it was still a gorgeous book and I did enjoy going through it, as well as some of the really interesting insights (like about Snoke's ship being more like a city, and the gorilla walkers being different than AT-ATs). Definitely would recommend if you enjoy Star Wars at all.

The art is gorgeous--no surprise. But what's truly astonishing is the degree of thought that goes into the creative decisions. Don't just look at the images; the commentary is invaluable to appreciate not just the Star Wars franchise, but also how complex the best of American film-making has become.
