Spectacular Concept Art for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”

If you’ve seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens — and if you haven’t by now, come on, just do it, the film’s great — you’ll know that it’s visually spectacular, and a lot of that is attributable to the impressive locations. Rey’s home planet of Jakku resembles Luke Skywalker’s desert home Tatooine (only with extra dead Star Destroyers), the First Order’s proto-fascist interiors are as imposing as the Empire’s ever were, and the characters romp through plenty of other striking locales. So it’s fascinating to look at some of the art that preceded the finished product — this collection of storyboards and concept art is taken from the book The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens by Phil Szostak, which is out now, and we’re delighted to feature it on Flavorwire.
