By the time of Revenge of the Sith, the digital dream of the prequels finally existed and the movie was able to reach the limits of George Lucas and the art department’s imaginations. With the manta of “go wild”, the concept team designed what was at the time the final installment of the Skywalker saga’s most ambitious episode yet. Join us as we take a fun filled, action packed look at JW Rinzler’s genius 2005 art book, the unique look of ROTS, some creative roads not taken, and how the concepts of ROTS continue to echo into all of modern Star Wars!
