It's not the kind of book I would pre-order either. It's one I would have to pick up and leaf through to decide whether I would want to buy it. So as you said, things like concept art (including Tatootine and OT era) and plans for alternate sites would be interesting to see. So I'll just wait until I see it at a Disney gift shop or a bookstore.

Yep. The only way this book is worthwhile is to see all the various iterations beforehand. The plans from when the land was in alternate sites. The (I'm guessing) many, many blue sky attraction concepts. Numerous versions of various layouts. Showscenes that got rejected. Ride layouts that got simplified. Et cetera and et cetera. I'm not really interested in seeing things that are close to what we currently got.

I'd rather have an art book of all the ideas that got cut from the final product. Before and after Disneyland plans gutted the DHS version.

Buying a book nine months in advance... Either I am getting too old or people are going crazy... And I'm only 39 ;)
