Ultimate Star Wars isn't the first Star Wars encyclopedia to be released, and with new episodes in the Star Wars saga on the horizon, it's impossible to imagine it being the last. But when it comes to compiling a (near-exhaustive) compendium of Star Wars facts and knowledge of the galaxy, far, far, away, at this point in time, authors Patricia Barr, Adam Bray, Daniel Wallace and Ryder Windham have done a remarkable job, and it's hard to dispute the book's testament as being the current go-to reference guide, whether you are wanting to learn about the classic or prequel trilogies, The Clone Wars or Star Wars Rebels.
With a foreward by C-3PO himself, Anthony Daniels, and an introduction by Ryder Windham opening the book, the core of Ultimate Star Wars is separated into four main sections, Characters and Creatures, which is unsurprisingly the largest, locations, technology and vehicles. Following a brief introduction, each section is bookended by a timeline that runs chronogically from Episodes I through VI, and a corresponding two-page behind-the-scenes spread that features concept art, production stills and other images from the making of the movies.
