The new book STAR WARS ICONS: HAN SOLO features new behind-the-scenes details about how the iconic smuggler came to be.
Written by journalist Gina McIntyre, Star Wars Icons: Han Solo is a new Insight Editions book that chronicles the history, aesthetics, and evolution of the famed Star Wars character Han Solo.
The book, available via pre-orders, boasts a huge collection of exclusive behind-the-scenes photos, storyboards, and interviews. Those interviews include Harrison Ford, Alden Ehrenreich, Peter Mayhew, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams, Ron Howard, and J. J. Abrams… and many more!
In addition to exploring the films, McIntyre also goes in-depth with the huge expanded Star Wars universe, as well as Han Solo’s lasting impact in pop culture. This book seems to cover just about everything, from the infamous who-shot-first-debate to Han Solo’s iconic wardrobe.
Smuggler. Rogue. Hero of the Rebellion. Scruffy-looking nerf herder. Han Solo has been called all these things and more since making his debut in the original Star Wars film back in 1977. Four decades later, the irrepressible Solo continues to be one of the most iconic and enduring elements of the saga.
Star Wars Icons: Han Solo covers the character’s entire journey, from his genesis in George Lucas’s first drafts of Star Wars to Harrison Ford’s iconic performances in the original three films and The Force Awakens, and the character’s rebirth in Solo: A Star Wars Story. The book also takes an in-depth look at Solo’s role in the Star Wars expanded universe, through novels, comics, video games, and more, and the indelible impression the character has made on pop culture.
You can pre-order the book now on Sideshow Toy (with estimated shipping for this month!).
