"A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away," 10 words changed the cinematic world forever. Now Entertainment Weekly's editors and writers celebrate the Star Wars universe in an updated and revised collector's edition - Entertainment Weekly The Ultimate Guide to Star Wars - that covers the entire universe, from A New Hope to The Last Jedi, and all the books, television shows, comics and video games in between. This comprehensive guide features rarely seen production and cast photos from all the movies in the series, including behind-the-scenes photos from The Last Jedi, as well as surprising reveals and speculation about the future of the franchise.
There are tons of extras throughout for Star Wars-obsessed fans, including an essay on illustrator Ralph McQuarrie, the founding of George Lucas's Industrial Light & Magic, the secrets hidden within John Williams's scores, a tribute to director Irvin Kershner written by his son, and a moving tribute to Carrie Fisher by Mark Hamill, as well as insights on what Fisher's unexpected death means for the final film and a discussion about what's to come in 2018's Solo: A Star Wars Story. Also included are deep dives focusing on insider-only content like the Holiday Special, spoofs and parodies, a discussion about the now-retired Legends books and comics series, and a discussion about proper viewing order. This is the must-have edition for anyone and everyone who considers themselves a Star Wars fan.
