Amy Ratcliffe’s The Art of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is the only book to provide an inside look at the magic behind the themed lands at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort, documenting the art and innovations that led to the creation of Galaxy’s Edge.
Introduction by Disney Imagineer Scott Trowbridge
Featuring hundreds of full-color concept artworks, sketches, blueprints, photographs, and more, this book reveals Walt Disney Imagineering’s creative process behind the popular attraction from a galaxy far, far away.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge invites guests to explore Black Spire Outpost, located on the remote Outer Rim planet Batuu—a spaceport bustling with First Order and Resistance activity where guests can interact with droids, creatures, and fan-favorite characters. Alongside Black Spire Outpost’s vibrant cantina and marketplace, a new and original score composed by John Williams accompanies guests as they seek out the land’s two major attractions: Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, which allows guests to commandeer the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy, and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, in which guests find themselves in the crossfire of a ferocious battle between the Resistance and the First Order.
Exclusive interviews with the key creative minds who shaped the lands’ design provide commentary on what it’s like to dream and then build a life-size Star Wars adventure. Plus, the book offers an inside look at the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser experience, a first-of-its-kind immersive two-night adventure.
