“Frames” For The People

TFN posted a link to Amazon’s pre-order for “Star Wars: Frames” in paperback. This was the insanely expensive volume of shots from all 6 existing Star Wars films personally chosen by Papa George. The hardcover was thousands of dollars. This version is less than a hundred. Due out in November!

    Aaaahhhh, too awesome!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’d always been hankering to see which shots he chose, and why!

    Just so you know…Rinzler’s “Making of Return of the Jedi” tome is finally available for pre-order too! Maybe spread the word because they are wonderful books in series that should really keep going.

      Yeah, I’m definitely buying that one.

      I am interested to hear the news, but have to admit that, having parsimoniously bought the paperback edition of “The Making of Star Wars,” I’ve been waiting for a comparable paperback of “The Making of The Empire Strikes Back” for quite a while now… maybe I’ll just have to resign myself to shelling out for the hardcovers.

    Just scroll down a bit on Amazon and while it has no image available, it does show a Oct 22, 2013 release.

    The making of ROTJ is a must. Have all the other making of books, there a MUST have. I’m phsyed about Frames always want it but def couldn’t swing $3000 on it. Will be a welcomed addition to my Star Wars library.

    It’ll be liking having the maker’s hand on your shoulder — well, his one hand — while he’s gently caressing your buttocks with the other. Okay, maybe the buttocks-thing is pure invention on my part. He’ll be caressing the buttocks in your brain, though. This may be one time that George Lucas would be justified in quoting/paraphrasing RedLetterMedia for the blurb on the back cover: “You may not have noticed these exact frames, but your brain did!”

    Really looking forward to this. With the stupidly-high price of the original — surely, not even gourmet fried Ewok mixed with essence of Gungan eye-stalk costs that much? — I had rationalized that I didn’t need this, but at a price that’s a tiny fraction of the original, it could just have turned into an essential purchase. Hell, I could buy TWO copies, and cut one up and stick all the frames on my wall; or as many as would fit. That’s not a bad idea, actually… ๐Ÿ™‚

    P.S. Totally random factoid. There are meant to be 1,416 hand-picked images from Papa George himself, right? Those integers, split right down the middle, “rhyme” with the fictional and real age of Queen Amidala/Natalie Portman in Episode I! I’ve said before that the prequel trilogy — in some ways, the entire damn saga — is actually Padme’s story; and I think GL says as much about Episode I on the DVD commentary. Just a quirky link. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah, I may have to have this. And love Rinzler. His ROTS set the standard. Can’t wait for him to do a big deluxe TPM and AOTC.

    I hope Rinzler plans on big ole deluxe editions of I-III.
