Hey everybody, this week I wanted to talk about something I haven’t really addressed through my blog- art books! I always love looking through them and I especially love looking through books with character design art or concept art so writing about the new Art of Star Wars book was very fitting.
The book, which costs $79.99 and is a lengthy 240 pages, is set to release on November 19th of this year. I’m not a huge Star Wars person myself, but the art seems really cool to look through and I’m sure this will be an amazing companion book for this new video game. Justpushstart’s website wrote that “with detailed concept art of all-new characters, exciting weapons and equipment, and locales both familiar and new, this tome offers a behind-the-scenes look at the production of a hit game–all accompanied by intimate artists’ commentary that reveals how this incredible universe is brought together. This limited edition also features a cover and slipcase inspired by ancient Jedi tomes, as well as an exclusive gallery-quality lithograph!” (https://www.justpushstart.com/2019/09/star-wars-jedi-fallen-order-art-book-announced/ ).
Interested to see what the new game was about, I went ahead and found an article briefly describing the video game that will launch on November 15th of this year, “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will feature an authentic story set shortly after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, when the Jedi have fallen. Fans will play as a young Padawan named Cal Kestis, brought to life by Cameron Monaghan (Shameless, Gotham), who has survived Order 66, the Emperor’s secret decree to eliminate all Jedi. Players must pick up the pieces of Cal’s shattered past to complete his training and master the art of the iconic lightsaber—all while staying one step ahead of the Empire and its deadly Inquisitors”. The article also includes the official reveal trailer for the game which was incredibly hyper-realistic and beautifully moody.
