THE BOTTOM LINE
My family is very happy with this book. As I grew up with the original Star Wars trilogy, I think I am the happiest of all. When "Han Solo: A Star Wars Story" is released, I probably will buy the visual companion to that film. In fact, I am also looking forward to purchasing the visual companions to "The Force Awakens" and the previous six Star Wars movies. There is lots of material in these books to keep us entertained. Thumbs up!
[Spoiler]: The only disappointment I have in the book is that they don't go into detail about the planet Mustafar, Darth Vader's castle, Darth Vader's bacta tank - or the process he uses to continually heal his body. There was no glimpse or detail about Grand Moff Tarkin either, even though he plays a role in the film's story too. My only guess is that this material is meant to be a surprise in the movie, but books like this should be all-encompassing in my opinion.
Overall I give this big my highest recommendation. Two lightsabers way up!
There are data files for the major characters and vehicles. Some characters also have personal timelines and general back stories. There's even even a general timeline and galaxy map at the front of the book. The timeline presents the events on Years before Rogue One Mission or BR1, for instance the events in The Phantom Menace take place 32 BR1.
Wanna know more about the background characters at Yavin? They're here. Wanna know more about the background characters on Jedha? They're here. Wanna know more about Saw's militia, the Rebels, the Empire? It's all here. If you want to know more about the characters and everything else in the movie, I highly recommend this book.
This is a great coffee table book, a fun, easy read that probably won't last you more than a few hours, but it's a reference that Star Wars fans will want to revisit more than once, and it should sit next to the other DK Guides in the Star Wars section of your bookshelf.
great for 3d modellers, cosplayers, prop making fans or just fans of the star wars universe.
