Book Description:
The Star Wars universe, much like our own, is constantly expanding. In the 10 years since the publication of the Star Wars Encyclopaedia, the definitive reference guide to a space fantasy phenomenon, a lot has happened in that galaxy far, far away. Four new feature films, a host of official original novels, comics, video games, and more, have introduced new characters, new lore, new events, and new revelations. We've experienced everything from the Clone Wars and the inception of the Empire to the rise and fall of Anakin Skywalker and the invasion of the monstrous Yuuzhan Vong. We've witnessed the founding of the New Jedi Order and learned the history of the ancient Sith rule of two. We've met Mace Windu, Darth Maul, Queen Amidala, and Jango Fett, to name but a few.
Keeping pace with the prodigious growth of the Star Wars saga means that the ultimate sourcebook of data, culled from films, radio dramas, comics, novels, short stories, and video games, had to grow also. And now, thirty years of information on all things Star Wars, ranging from science and technology to history and geography, culture and biography to ecology and cosmology, with comprehensive entries from "abo" and "Abrax" to "Zirtran's Anchor" and "zwil"; has been supplemented with another entire decade's worth of all-new material.
Abundantly illustrated with full-colour artwork and photos, and now in a new three-volume edition to accommodate its millennia-spanning wealth of detailed entries, the Star Wars Encyclopaedia encompasses the full measure of George Lucas's extraordinary creation. Here are the renowned and infamous (Luke Skywalker, Jorus C'baoth, Darth Vader, Grand Moff Tarkin), the obscure and enigmatic (Tnun Bdu, Captain Tycho Celchu, Bib Fortuna); the natives and customs of planets as diverse as Tatooine and Hoth, Dagobah and Kashyyyk; the rituals, secrets, and traditions of Jedi Knights and Sith Lords; plus, for the intensive researcher, a timeline of major events in Star Wars history. Scrupulously researched and written by leading authorities Stephen J. Sansweet, Pablo Hidalgo, Bob Vitas, Daniel Wallace, Mary Franklin, Josh Kushins, and Chris Cassidy, this landmark work is the key to a monumental mythos and the must-have centrepiece for every Star Wars library.
