The Star Wars Archives Episodes I-III: 1999-2005 by Paul Duncan.
I’ve been wanting to read this book for quite awhile now. I’m really looking forward to its arrival to learn in-depth about my favourite era of the series more than what has ever been released before as it is told through various collaborators and detailed contents such as scripts and concept art, learning more about George’s Sequel plans than what has made it online, and of course hearing directly from him his philosophy and way of seeing life. I feel it’s going to be such an immersive and emotional experience. It will also be a great resource in my continued growth in telling stories of my own. I can’t wait!
Ooof! doubleofive has highlighted many of the mistakes this author’s claims on his Star Wars Visual Comparisons website, and I am told oojason and others also “pulled it apart” on the OT Discord for the number of mistakes and false claims. People who worked on the actual Prequel films and Special Editions have also corrected the author of the book online.
Will there be a second edition with many of the mistakes corrected soon? For Ç150 I would wait for a second version or ask the author or publisher if there is a corrected version planned. Mistakes happen, but I would have expected “a Star Wars historian” and author to have fact checked their work more thoroughly before release. Especially when asking Ç150 for their work.
I do hope you enjoy the book regardless of these problems, and Paul Duncan’s other mistaken online claims about Star Wars history.
