Force Material Episode XXXVI: The Art of Solo: A Star Wars Story

Force Material Episode XXXVI: The Art of Solo: A Star Wars Story

We see how Phil Szostak's latest Star Wars art book stacks up in this week's episode of the Force Material podcast! 

Written by Lucasfilm Creative Art Manager Phil Szostak and published by Abrams Books, The Art of Solo: A Star Wars Story explores the production of Solo through a collection of sketches, concepts, production paintings and more. 

We discuss our favourite revelations from the book on this week's show, including the wild concepts and plot lines that didn't make it to the screen! 

We also discuss the connections Lawrence Kasdan weaved between Solo and The Force Awakens; the films that inspired the makers of Solo; one major change we'd like to see to the art books in future; and the last-minute change to a major character that's inadvertently revealed in The Art of Solo!
