The Art of Star Wars: The Mandalorian (Season Two) Review

“You have something I want. You may think you have some idea of what you have in your possession, but you do not. Soon, he will be back with me. He means more to me than you will ever know.” — The Mandalorian

Abrams Books has done a magnificent job on all of their Star Wars art books. The art book for The Mandalorian Season One was released in 2020, and it was definitely one of my favorite art books of the year. That book included all of the sketches that you saw in the ends credits of all of The Mandalorian Season One episodes as well as other concept art for the show. If you missed out on that must have art book, you can order it at the link below.

Order: The Art of Star Wars: The Mandalorian (Season 1)

As refreshing as the first season of The Mandalorian was for Star Wars fans, the second season was on another level. Abrams Books will be releasing their follow up art book for season 2 of The Mandalorian on February 15th, 2022. The publisher sent me a preview of the book to geek out over. This is the way.

The artwork in this book is organized chronologically into sections for each espisode of the The Mandalorian Season 2.

  • The Marshall
  • The Passenger
  • The Heiress
  • The Seige
  • The Jedi
  • The Tragedy
  • The Believer
  • The Rescue

The credits for each episode of The Mandalorian always feature amazing concept art for the episode. All of that gorgeous concept art is collected in the pages of this book. The book is very complete as it includes art for every character, creature, and setting from the show throughout it’s 256 pages.

We saw a skeleton of a Krayt Drsgon in Star Wars: A New Hope, and we finally got to see one on screen in The Mandalorian. The Krayt Dragon was a visually impressive beast in The Marshall episode. The book has several pages of cool models and concept art that went in to bringing the Krayt Dragon to life in the show.

The Mandalorian and Grogu met a lot of new friends and also some familiar faces on their quest to get Grogu some Jedi training. Some of the characters, we had only seen before in animated form. The book details the designs that brought popular animated characters like Bo-Kattan Kryze and Ahsoka Tano from the Star Wars Clone Wars animated show to live action in the Mandalorian.

The biggest highlight of The Mandalorian Season 2 for me was the return of Boba Fett at the end of The Marshall episode and when he kicked Empire butt when he gets his armor back in The Tragedy episode. We get to see a lot of concept art for Boba’s new look as well as different options created for his throne at the end of the season.

Luke Skywalker saves the day in The Mandalorian Season 2 finale episode, The Rescue. This was a great surprise for many Star Wars fans. To preserve the secret of Luke Skywalker’s appearance, there was no art produced that included Luke or R2-D2. Instead the art team created art for those scenes using one of Dave Filoni’s favorite Jedi, Plo Koon. Plo Koon was last seen shot down by troopers in Revenge of the Sith after Order 66 was issued. All of the art featuring Plo Koon in Luke Skywalker’s scenes can be found in this book.

The Art of Star Wars: The Mandalorian (Season 2) is another epic addition to Abrams Books’ The Art of Star Wars book series. This is an easy recommendation if you are a fan of The Mandalorian.
