I agree with Mariogeek. Gorgeous and creative art from the movie, but little kids should definitely not get their hands on this.

This is an absolutely beautiful book. Being an artist myself I always enjoy picking other's brains, so to speak.
I added an age recommendation of 12+ for the following reasons:
1: This is a 40$ book and I personally think no one wants to buy the library a new one after the three-year old got his hands on it.
2: This book does contain sexual references, only two, one in storyboard art (the 4-panel storyboard aptly entitled "seduction") and one of the artists commenting on one of his characters. Other character concepts are sometimes 'edgy'.
I found this a fascinating book, with a good insight into the production of Star Wars, because it started here. This is where the ideas flow out like a fountain!
