Inside The Worlds Of Star Wars Trilogy
by James Luceno (Consultant - Curtis Saxton)
by Illustrated by Hans Jenssen & Richard Chasemore

Published by DK Publishing


Scott's Rating:   4 out of 4


Like the other books in the DK Incredible Cross Section / Incredible Locations series, this book features amazingly detailed drawings of locations within the Star Wars Universe from the Original Trilogy. (A few vehicles are also highlighted.) These key places are shown in cross section with their inner workings, machinery, and details exposed. Notes on the history and functions of certain items are also explained. The following locations and vehicles are featured:

  • Tatooine
  • Luke’s Landspeeder
  • T-16 Skyhopper
  • Lars Homestead
  • Tosche Station
  • Ben’s House
  • Mos Eisley
  • The Cantina
  • The Death Star
  • The Great Temple (Yavin)
  • Hoth
  • Walker Dropships
  • Echo Base
  • Ion Cannon
  • Dagobah
  • Yoda’s House
  • Cloud City
  • Carbonite Storage Block
  • Cloud City – Processing Vane
  • Jabba’s Palace
  • Jabba’s Throne Room
  • Endor
  • Ewok Village
  • Death Star II
  • Emperor’s Lair
  • Executor Command Tower



Scott:

    Like all of the other Incredible Cross-Sections books from DK, this one is simply stunning. The drawings are incredibly detailed and you can spend literally hours looking at all the hidden touches in it. The drawings make everything not only seem real, but functional. For every location, the artists not only figure out how every place fits together, but what’s beyond it. You see new corners of Echo Base, Mos Eisley, the Death Star, and more. You even learn how the AT-AT’s were brought from space to Hoth. Not only that, but they tie in some deleted scenes from the films. For example, you see where the cut wampa attack scene in Echo Base took place. You see where Luke built his lightsaber in Ben’s Hut in Return of the Jedi. You see Tosche Station which was cut from ANH. There’s more beside this. I’m just blown away by what they were able to accomplish.

And though the artwork is the star of the book, the text has its own fair share of surprises. For example, you learn that a piece of artwork in Palpatine’s quarters was a gift from “Moff Panaka”. Was Padme’s former bodyguard made a Moff? You learn Tosche station is owned by “Merl Tosche” and Fixer’s real name is “Laze Loneozner”. You see where Ben kept his journals in his hut along with lightsaber making instructions. You find an arena in Mos Eisley named after Jango Fett. There’s even an Imperial Base shown in Mos Eisley. You also learned that the first Death Star destroyed TWO planets before Luke blew it up. This book also confirms that Darth Sidious, Palpatine, and the Emperor are all one in the same being (in case there was any doubt.) Then how about this line:

"After seeing Anakin's lightsaber, C3PO's protocol programming requires him to request that he shut down to protect his ex-owner's secrets."
You even learn that Owen and Beru slept in separate beds. (OK, maybe that wasn’t as exciting.) Anyway, you get the idea – this book is a goldmine of information for Star Wars fans.

Overall, this is a fantastic book and will be a valuable addition to the collection of Star Wars fans.
