Have you every wondered about the origin of some of pop-culture’s favorite characters? It’s fascinating to see concept art and hear the stories of the changes these characters go through from cradle to grave. Sometimes they start off as one gender and end up the opposite. You’d be surprised what you learn if you dig a little deeper.

Have you picked up your copy of The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens yet? This is not the average art book with pictures and descriptions, this book is a treasure trove knowledge. There is information in this book that you can’t find anywhere else. For example, did you know that Supreme Leader Snoke was almost a woman? Rumor has it that Snoke was to be voiced by actress Shohreh Aghdashloo. The book doesn’t go into detail as to why they chose to go with a man instead, but it would have certainly been interesting a woman working for the dark side.
