While we may not all be able to jump on the nearest starship and journey to Batuu anytime soon, you can bring home the magic of the happiest place on earth with Amy Ratcliffe’s latest edition to the Art of Star Wars collection. 

Explore Batuu with never-before-seen concept art that brings to life every corner of Galaxy’s Edge and shows how Walt Disney Imagineering’s placemaking works to manifest and develop large-scale worlds that create unforgettable experiences for Star Wars fans.  

The Art of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge contains 250 pages of full-color concept artwork, sketches, blueprints, photographs, and interviews that showcase the hundreds of thousands of hours that go into creating life-sized Star Wars locations. 

From the Millennium Falcon to the Garrison Village, Oga’s Cantina and Savi’s Workshop, to the droid technology and Cast Member costuming, this book is bound to have behind-the-scenes information to appeal to every type of theme park and Star Wars fan out there. 

While the artwork is a visual masterpiece, some of the best parts of The Art of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge comes from the narrative interwoven between sketches and photographs.
