The definitive, lavishly illustrated reference guide to the universe of the first six films!

This comprehensive boxed set of three hefty volumes covers every aspect of Star Wars, from the original six movies to The Clone Wars, radio dramas, comics, novels, cartoons, short stories, and video games. With a treasure trove of information on more than thirty years of Star Wars—and a millennia in the galaxy far, far away—this is the must-have centerpiece for every Star Wars library. Abundantly illustrated with full-color artwork and photos, and now in a new three-volume edition to accommodate its wealth of detailed entries, the Star Wars Encyclopedia encompasses the full measure of George Lucas’s creation.

Here’s just a sampling of what’s inside:
• character portraits of both the renowned (Luke Skywalker, Queen Amidala, Darth Vader) and the obscure (Tnun Bdu, 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
• a timeline of major events in Star Wars history, 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

Scrupulously researched and written by leading authorities Stephen J. Sansweet, Pablo Hidalgo, Bob Vitas, and Daniel Wallace, this landmark work is the must-have centerpiece of every Star Wars library.
Stephen J. Sansweet was a feature writer for the Philadelphia Inquirer before joining The Wall Street Journal. There, he was named deputy bureau chief in 1983 and, four years later, served as the Journal's Los Angeles bureau chief. In 1996, Sansweet joined Lucasfilm Ltd. as Director of Specialty Marketing to help promote Star Wars to fans both old and new. He started collecting robots and space toys in the mid-1970s and over the years has created the largest private collection of Star Wars memorabilia in the world. He is the author or coauthor of six books, including The Punishment Cure, Science Fiction Toys and Models, Star Wars: From Concept to Screen to Collectible, Tomart's Price Guide to Star Wars Collectibles, and Quotable Star Wars: I'd Just as Soon Kiss a Wookiee.
