For any Star Wars fan, this book is amazing. In fact, even folks only mildly interested in it will find this book fascinating as a terrific behind-the-scenes look at every aspect of the making of The Phantom Menace. Especially wonderful are all the photographs (and there are several on every page) that show everything from costumes and make-up of the stars to tons of special effects secrets. How they built the sets, how they made all the animated characters, so many of the action scenes and close-up details of the costumes.... Wonderful for film students and fans alike.
