Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful book: must-have if you're a fan. I bought most of these art book prior to the release of the movie. Needless to say the hype got built up a lot in my mind. The concepts in this collection are incredible and still manage to surprise in this age where digital fantasy art is a dime a dozen. Sadly, my expectations were too high and I wasn't as impressed by the actual film itself. Still, a great book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing This book is really for all the movie's fans! I'm very pleased with this book and adore it. Each picture, each drawing are inspiring for any artists. The size of the book is perfect! This book will be following me a lot for a long time. I highly recommand this, especially for the artists that want to create art based or about the serie and even cosplayers that want to recreate the costumes. Everything is very well detailed for that.
