SW’s 30th to include “The Making of Star Wars” book

Tentatively set for publication on April 24, 2007, is The Making of Star Wars: The Definitive Story Behind The Original Film by J.W. Rinzler.

First announced by Lucasfilm in May of this year, the book will be released just in time for the 30th anniversary of the original Star Wars movie on May 25. The film was later re-titled Star Wars: Episode IV-A New Hope.

The book also features a foreword by Lord of the Rings trilogy director Peter Jackson. It will be available in both hardcover and paperback editions.

Rinzler also wrote last year’s The Making of Star Wars: Episode III-Revenge of the Sith.
