Rogue One marks not just the beginning of a new Star Wars story, but an entirely new approach to Star Wars storytelling—breaking away from the Skywalker saga and exploring new heroes, new tales, and new corners of the iconic “galaxy far, far away.” Featuring personal recollections and anecdotes from designers, creators, cast, and crew at all stages of production—as well as concept art and behind-the-scenes photos—this book offers an immersive look at Rogue One’s journey to the screen. From the early decision to spin stand-alone stories and the hiring of visionary director Gareth Edwards, to the triumphs and challenges of principal photography and the exciting innovations of Industrial Light & Magic’s post-production, Making Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the comprehensive oral history of this new film’s production.
