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.
All of the visual elements of the film are included here (with the exception of a few that are meant to be surprises).
- Characters: Jyn Erso, Saw Gerrera, K2-SO, Director Krennic, Darth Vader, etc
- Rebel and Empire forces, as well as their costumes
- Props such as weapons, survival kits, and other gear
- The various ships and transports such as the X-Wing, TIE Striker, and AT-ACT.
- The Death Star plans and the datatape cartridge that contains them.
- The various planets in the film and their environments, local populations, and landmarks.
The book includes a nice foreword from John Knoll, as well as a galactic map which includes the new planets in Rogue One, and a size comparison chart (so you can see the relative scale of the film's combat vessels in relation to each other). There are also a few pages at the end of the book that go behind the scenes with photographs of the film's production, a very welcome addition for those curious about the filmmaking process.
If you are more interested in conceptual artwork, then the book to get is The Art of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. I'd highly recommend both books if you enjoyed the film.
The team wisely abandons the old format of white pages with a few pictures and completely revamps the format, separating it into chapters and totally changing the layout of each page, focusing on factions and locations.
This is the most "Visual" of all the Visual Dictionaries, containing massive pictures and close ups of props, characters, costumes and screenshots from the film that highlight the detail of the amazing production design.
This new format should totally be adopted for all future Visual Dictionaries and in the inclusion of the Cross Sections is by far my favorite feature. You don't have to buy a second book just to see a few (cool) drawings of vehicle cutouts. It's all in here!
Unlike The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi Visual Dictionaries, this actually feels like a guide to the film and expands on everything you see in it. It connects to the larger universe and each page has something entertaining about it, whether it's the little stories Pablo writes about a random extra, or the great photos of the various aspects of costumes and production design.
If you are a fan of the Star Wars Visual Dictionaries and/or Rogue One pick this up cause it's by far the best one ever!
