What You Will Find in The LEGO Batman Movie: The Making of the Movie
Since this is a large coffee table style book, you of course need a table of contents:
It’s hard to see from my photo, but the main sections of the book revolve around Locations, Characters and Vehicles.
Here are some of the page excerpts from the publisher and a few photos of my own favorite pages from the book:
This is truly a behind-the-scenes “making of” book. You’ll get wireframes, sketches and walk-throughs of who certain sections were created. You get a close up view of how they chose to make certain scenes, use light to their advantage and the various iterations and supporting builds created to make a movie on this scale. And if you’re not into reading, this book has some seriously amazing photography. Whether you and your kids are more literary than visual, or vice-versa, I guarantee you will find something to enjoy in this book. DK Publishing did an excellent job with this one.
