This definitive Star Wars (TM) encyclopedia includes, section by section, every significant Star Wars character, creature, location, battle, droid and vehicle in the Star Wars movie and animated universe. Each entry of this authoritative reference book is presented in chronological order, from the prequel trilogy beginning with Star Wars: The Phantom Menace through to the original Star Wars trilogy, and the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels.
Sections begin with a fully illustrated timeline charting key events, and each entry is illustrated by a full colour, original movie still. Major entries, such as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, R2D2, Yoda, Darth Vader, Han Solo, Millennium Falcon, and Tatooine, receive double-page treatments. Each chapter of this definitive movie guide conclude with a behind-the-scenes look at the groundbreaking special-effects techniques that have brought the saga so thrillingly to life on screen. Interspersed throughout are spectacular features on crucial Star Wars scenes, such as Luke discovering that Darth Vader is his father, and major battles, like the Battle of Endor.
Featuring a foreword by C3PO himself, Anthony Daniels, and with two exclusive Star Wars prints contained within its sturdy slipcase, DK's Ultimate Star Wars is the perfect gift for Star Wars fans and those just getting to know the galaxy far far away.
