Announced earlier this week on The Star Wars Show, is an upcoming book dedicated to one of the most beloved characters in the Star Wars universe. From his earliest beginnings, through the films, expanded universe, and more, there is a lot to know about Han Solo, and Gina McIntyre’s new book aims to give us a comprehensive look at the smuggler with a heart of gold.
StarWars.com has revealed the final cover for the book, and features an interview with the author. You can see the cover and read the intro to the Q&A below:
Han Solo. The name alone evokes an almost instantaneous response from Star Wars fans: Cool. Loyal. Hero. Nerf Herder.
Indeed, there are few characters in movies or fiction at large that have come to mean as much to us as Han.
As revealed earlier this week on The Star Wars Show, a beautiful new tribute to our favorite scoundrel, Star Wars Icons: Han Solo by Gina McIntyre, is coming November 13. Published in the US by Insight Editions and in the UK by Ilex, the tome covers Han’s entire journey in great detail; complemented with arresting imagery and photos, McIntyre charts the character’s history from George Lucas’s first explorations in the mid-’70s to Harrison Ford’s performance in the original trilogy and The Force Awakens, up to the high-adventure and personal origin tale in Solo: A Star Wars Story. It delves into his role in novels, comics, and video games, and features exclusive new interviews with Harrison Ford, Alden Ehrenreich, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams, Peter Mayhew, Ron Howard, J.J. Abrams, Lawrence Kasdan, Jonathan Kasdan, and more. To borrow a phrase from the man himself, Star Wars Icons: Han Solo has got it where it counts. StarWars.com caught up with author Gina McIntyre to discuss crafting Star Wars Icons: Han Solo, interviewing a staggering number of legends, and what the ol’ pirate means to her.
