Expand Your “Last Jedi” Library

With every new Star Wars release, there is a plethora of reference material and resource publications that go along with it. For me, they are some of my favorite gifts to give and receive for the holidays. The Last Jedi hits theaters next week, and DK will be releasing their Visual Dictionary and Incredible Cross-Sections books plus Abrams’ The Art of The Last Jedi book. All three are available for preorder now on Amazon at up to 51% off their retail price and ship next week.

    I love the Visual Dictionary books. Will definitely pick this up

      Aside from the great pics, they’ve always got some great tidbits of info you don’t get elsewhere.

        exactly

    The Visual Dictionary and Art Of books are essentials for these new movies. I’ve made it a tradition to get them ASAP after TFA and Rogue One. For TLJ, I was agonizing about whether to order them from Amazon or try to find them locally. (My local stores aren’t super-reliable about putting new books out on their release dates.) I put in a placeholder order on Amazon and then was pleased to get an e-mail that they will ship early so that they arrive at my home on 12/15.

    So the new plan for release weekend is:
    Thursday, 12/14: 7pm TLJ screening
    Friday morning, 12/15: Walmart or Best Buy trip early a.m. to buy the soundtrack, listen to the soundtrack all morning at work
    Friday afternoon, 12/15: leave work early for matinee TLJ screening
    Friday evening, 12/15: book delivery, read all night
    Saturday afternoon, 12/16: matinee TLJ screening with my wife and kids
    Additional viewings of TLJ as warranted. 🙂

      Awesome 🙂 I’m seeing it twice on the 14th though, a 6pm AMC theater “Fan Event” and at the same place for the 10pm IMAX.

        Nice. I would be very tempted to see it twice in a row. But I might also prefer to sleep on it after seeing it the first time.

        It did occur to me that I should incorporate an IMAX viewing. Maybe Sunday. 🙂

      Nice!

      How’d you get my itinerary? LOL!

      • RumSleg

        Ha! I suspect a lot of people are going to have a very similar weekend.

    Love the art books and visual guides, also noticed the Pre-order Price Guarantee popped up for one of them, and it reduced the price of one of the books, as I pre-ordered these last week.

    I got an email order update that they are shipping early, so I’ll get them on the 15th.
