Mandalorian season 2 is coming
The second season of The Mandalorian has been acclaimed by viewers and critics alike. Now, a new book will take Star Wars fans behind the scenes of the artistic process involved in bringing Season 2 to life.
Lucasfilm announcement this week that The Art of Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season 2 will be released in December, just in time for the great holiday season. Published by Abrams Books and written by Phil Szostak, the book will reportedly contain exclusive concept illustrations of creatures, vehicles, weapons and more.
In addition, exclusive anecdotes and interviews from people involved in the show will be included. This includes stories from series creator Jon Favreau and executive producer Dave Filoni, among others.
Abrams website states that the book will also cover many new characters introduced in season 2, including Boba Fett and Ahsoka Tano. “Readers will encounter the first visual and conceptual ideas for these new characters and their arsenal of weapons, ships and armor,” the website said.
Abrams Books has become somewhat of a primary partner of Lucasfilm over the past decade. The company has released numerous titles under the Star Wars brand, including concept art books for the five Disney-era feature films, exclusive illustration series and many more related to the artistic history of Lucasfilm.
Previous The Art from Star Wars: The Mandalorian, which covered the show’s first season, was released in December 2020 and received rave reviews. Space.com called it “a captivating coffee table book dedicated to providing an overview of the entire pre-production artistic process behind the hit show.”
If the upcoming book looks like its predecessor, then a lot of the same unique information about the show will likely be available within its pages, and the 300 full-color illustrations it would include could bring new secrets to light.
Although it only comes out on December 14, The Art of Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season 2 is available for Pre-order now on the Abrams Books website.
