    Looking forward to this one: http://theforce.net/latestnews/stor...ng_Of_Star_Wars_Return_Of_The_Jedi_150811.asp

    Random House's product page for The Making of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi now features a synopsis for the book. Here's what you can expect from Lucasfilm editor J.W. Rinzler's latest behind-the-scenes tome:

    Here's some additional information about the book from the Edelweiss catalog:
    * More than 600 photos and images
    * The eBook version will include "bonus content," as will new eBook versions of Rinzler's previous two making-of books, which will also be published on this book's release date.
    * This year, Lucasfilm plans "huge" 30th anniversary events for Return of the Jedi that it will promote alongside this book.

    The Making of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, by J.W. Rinzler, will be published on October 8, 2013

    Aaaannnnd... *drrooooool*

    I hope he does Episode VII as well... and I hope it's released to coincide with the release of the BLURAY, not the theatire release, so that he's able to go inot spoiler territory rather than having to avoid it.

    I bought the first one way back and I'm ashamed to say that I still haven't read the whole thing. Just glimpsed through it.

    I highly recommend both the ANH and ESB ones. Lots of bits of info i personally didnt know about, so that alone made them worthwhile to me.

    Of course, i'm looking forward to this one :woot:

    If we got the EXACT SAME RotJ with Luke becoming Vader, it would make absolutely no sense.

    In an interview about this book, when asked if he'd be doing a "Making of Episode VII" book, JW Rinzler said "I have to recuse myself here. I can't talk about anything Episode VII".

    MAN, do I hope that's a 'yes'.

    That sounds like a "very likely yes" to me hehe. Let's hope so. I have enjoyed these books a lot, and one thing Lucas did have was sharing all of that backstage stuff and info with the fans, so hopefully that's a trend that will continue with the new movies.
