The Shot List for 12/14

“I am a Jedi. I’m one with the Force, and the Force will guide me.”


Today we launched a huge feature: The Star Wars Story, in which we’re exploring the history and making of the Star Wars universe. That’s the focus of today’s Shot List.

+ The 50 Most Beautiful Shots of The Star Wars Franchise
+ That Timeless Sci-Fi: Gareth Edwards on Taking Risks with Rogue One
+ The History of Star Wars Posters
+ The Art That Inspired Star Wars
+ Star Wars Documentaries: Chronicling A Galaxy Far Far Away
+ Shooting Star Wars: The Cinematographers of the Franchise
+ The Craft of Costumes: Star Wars and Clothing
+ These Are The Droids You’re Looking For
+ How One Line of Dialogue Changed The Entire Star Wars Universe


+ The Hidden Fortress (1958), a film that inspired a lot of Star Wars’ look.


+ For something not Star Wars-related, here’s the first trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, which looks fantastic.

The Shot List is our newly revamped daily newsletter. Instead of bombarding you with everything we publish, we’re breaking it down into a quick list of links, both from FSR and beyond.
