The Art of The Mandalorian (Season 2)



As far as the Art of Star Wars books go, The Art of The Mandalorian (Season 1) was much darker in tone than the previous Star Wars Art Books. I was very much looking forward to The Art of The Mandalorian (Season 2) to see if that dark tone would continue or if it would lighten up a bit. The answer was yes and yes.

There were more desert screen time so that naturally lightened the tone up a bit, also more daytime screen time helped out as well. Do not let that fool you, if you enjoy darker toned art there is plenty in the book.

Once again the Lucasfilm art team did a fantastic job and as per usual some of the art that did not make the final cut left me scratching my head as to why it was left out. I am not in on those decisions, I am just a Star Wars and art fan.

What stands out in The Art of The Mandalorian (Season 2) is the art is more telling of the story and not just an idea put down. There are action art work as well as the more customary standing still (character) art work.

This book makes you really see how the show and episodes were crafted from the art, more so that the previous books discussed here. If there is one thing I would change is I would have made the book more pages, but that is the movie and art fan in me.

The art in all of The Art of Star Wars books is at times breath taking and at times thought provoking. This is part of the joy looking through them and reading the snippets on the art. Every time (which is often) I look through one of the books I notice something new or that I missed before.

The Art of The Mandalorian (Season 2) is a must have art book, more so than Season 1. Do yourself a favor and get a copy.
