Sinon la qualité est là! je suis surprise de voir certaines scène coupés ou simplement inexistante dans le film, le story-board recèles d'informations et de dessins vraiment superbes! Je ne regrette pas d'avoir acheter ce volume. Quand je dis volume c'est vraiment le cas, livre très épais et fournis!

Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy is as thick as the earlier book at 352 pages. It's hardcover and the paper quality is nice.
The storyboards featured are split between Episodes IV, V and VI, with 82, 112 and 142 pages devoted to each respectively.
These storyboards are of course way older than those from the Prequel Trilogy book. Some of the storyboard artists include Joe Johnston, Ralph McQuarrie, Nilo Rodis-Jamero, Roy Carnon and more. There are 15 artists total. You can see different drawing styles, and medium such as in pencil, ink, markers and even watercolours.
Not every sequence in the film are included of course. In this book are mostly those that require visual effects, or action scenes, or the more complex sequences. It's cool to study the composition and story flow, and the handling of space and perspective is impressive.
The art is fantastic. Many of the storyboards are drawn quite detailed. You can actually make out the designs for the mask that rebels and stormtroopers are wearing. Same goes for the many spaceships and robots.
It's interesting looking at the storyboards for these three old films. Even though the technology supposedly outdated by today's film or sci-fi standards, it doesn't feel that way because of the suggestive nature of art.
The text only comes in the form of short captions describing the scenes on each page.
This is a great artbook that goes well together with the Prequel Trilogy book.
Highly recommended to those who love Star Wars and storyboards.

If you are interested in how the original trilogy movies were made, I would say this is a significant book, second only to Rinzler's series on THE MAKING OF STAR WARS, EMPIRE and JEDI. This storyboard book makes a great companion to those books as well as FRAMES.
One of many nice surprises in this book was finding boards drawn for THE STAR WARS, an early draft of the movie (when Alderaan was a floating city, for example).
Really didn't know what to expect when I ordered this. So pleased that I did.
Text is sparse in this book. Beyond the foreward and introduction, it's all artwork with brief captions.
If there is a drawback to this book, it's that not all scenes are included--probably to keep the page count and price manageable. One glaring omission is the Cantina scene. Given how choppy the Kenobi/"Walrus Man" battle was, I'd like to see how it was portrayed in storyboards.
If there is one treasured advantage to this book, it's that we see more drawings based on early designs that didn't appear in the movie. For example, the original Millennium Falcon was the Blockade Runner ship from Ep4's first scene. The cockpit was reused for the MF's "hamburger" design so the BR got a "hammerhead" cockpit. In these boards we see the original MF design escaping from Mos Eisley and being captured by the Death Star. That kind of stuff pleases me to no end!
SPOILER ALERT! You won't believe what Alderaan originally looked like! It looks pretty familiar!
It appears that Rinzler kept his choices as close to the finished movies as possible. That means that pretty much none of the cut scenes are included. For example, the scene of Luke and Biggs early in Ep 4 isn't here. Nor are any of the 1990's Special Edition scenes included. I did find one board from the sandstorm scene in Jedi, and there might be a few other rare instances, but overall the cut material is left out. I very much hope a future edition gets the "Special Edition" treatment with all that added.
***Side note for those who don't know what storyboards are.***
Storyboards are drawings of each shot for a movie. Every shot in a movie is pre-planned. Directors hire artists to sketch out what a particular shot will look like, meaning who is in the shot, how close they are to the camera, what action is taken (such as a spaceship's movement across the screen), and important background elements. Sometimes storyboard artists are asked to redraw a shot many times, depending on how many times the director changes his/her mind!
Keep in mind, storyboards are sketches. They are not conceptual art involving detailed paintings. These are just production sketches that are placed on a big wall so the director can see the flow of the movie. And since directors often use a team of storyboard artists, the quality and style can vary greatly. They also vary in medium: some in pencil, some in ink, some in grey wash tones, and a very few in color. PLEASE DO NOT EXPECT FULLY RENDERED PIECES OF ARTWORK! Directors do not need storyboards that are finished pieces, so it is wasteful to pay for anything more than a sketch that shows the bare essentials for the shot.
The beauty in this project is to experience the movies in their raw, imagined form. It's not just a revisit to the visuals or the story. It's a journey into the mind of Lucas and his assistants as they create the greatest sci-fi epic of all time.
This book delivers! Several of the images I had seen before in the various "Art Of . . " books, and I had expected seeing some of the same material here, but this delves deep into the archives and pulls out images about Ideas I never knew were being discussed, making this book something like a time travel device. If you are into Star Wars, you should have this on your shelf. If you are into the pre-production art of films you should have this book. If you are a student of film, you too should have this book because the art of storyboarding is valuable to the filmmakers ability to communicate. This is a great way to see how film looks are developed.
I highly recommend this book.
It's really a fascinating read into the creative minds that propped up George Lucas and his vision. No man does it alone, and Lucas is no exception. This book was a great pre-order purchase. Very worthy.
