I mistakenly thought that this book was also going to describe some of the actual outdoor movie set locations of where various exterior scenes were filmed, but it is actually a well-presented and detailed description of all of the various ficticious locations in Star Wars episodes IV,V,& VI from the fantasy point of view.

The exterior views and also the cut-a-way illustrations, maps of planets,and their detailed descriptions of Star Wars space technology are amazing in detail and descriptive content.

It is a pleasurable study of the Stars Wars Planets,Cities,and buildings and other space-related ships and other story-related structures for those who love the technical points of things like I do. Someone went to alot of trouble to produce this very definitive work, and I appreciate that kind of technical diligence as seen in this most enjoyable book.

This is the third book in the "Inside the World's of Star Wars" series. All of them are absolutely incredible! They take you on an in depth tour of the locations in the "Star Wars" galaxy. If you have ever looked into the background while watching the "Star Wars" movies, and wondered about the complex environments depicted by George Lucas, this book is for you. It gives complex detail about every aspect, of every location, of every scene from the movies. It show's you all of the location's on Tatooine, the Yavin base, the Death Stars, Eco Base, Yoda's hut, the Ewok village, and much, much more. Anyone curious about the colorfull worlds of the "Star Wars Trilogy" should purchse this book. For much more information on the variety of characters from "Star Wars," the "Visual Dictionary" series is also a must have, and to go in depth with the ships and technology, "Star Wars, the Incredible Cross-Sections" is another great series from DK.

I have enjoyed reading the DK series of books on Star Wars worlds and vehicles and once again they do not disappoint with an amazing level of detail. One really does appreciate the time and patience the artists and writers put into each illustration. Each illustration often contains additional material explaining events that happened off camera (i.e. as characters travel from place A to place C, something occured at place B). Some events I recognised from the original screenplay and deleted sequences(such as the Tosche station / Biggs sequence). Not being a hard core Star Wars fan, I have no idea where the others can from, beyond their being ideas that were tossed around during pre-production.

The copy I have was let down by some unprofessional publication flaws, notably incomplete sentences that trailed off into nothing (this occured about three times).

I am not an expert on Star Wars but there were one or two things that caused me to wonder, particularly the reference to C-3PO and Anakin's lightsaber on Tatooine which I thought may have contradicted something I read on the Star Wars site about droid memory erasure.

The book also vaguely fleshes out a few interesting "links" in the twenty or so year gap between the events of the current triology and the original triology of films, notably with reference to Yoda.

Recommended for fans of the Star Wars films (five stars if DK fix the typos).

I have 3 obsesions in collecting and Star Wars is #1. This book is a must have for any fan that has wondered about the actual details of the surroundings of locations in the Original Trilogy. The artest and writer have gone through pain staking detail to make sure you believe the locations we have seen were habitable/ functional. Plus the book is massive in size. Definately a must have for any Star Wars fan!
