Here’s your com­pre­hen­sively il­lus­trated, ex­haus­tively la­belled guide to the world­build­ing of Episode VII.

It’s been put to­gether by Pablo Hi­dalgo, head canon- wran­gler at the Lu­cas­film Story Group, so the lore is bona fide.

Cru­cially the book de­liv­ers es­sen­tial back­story on the Re­sis­tance, the Repub­lic and the First Or­der, vi­tal de­tails on the po­lit­i­cal state of the galaxy that never made it to the screen.

Above all it’s a more- ish trivia feast. Who knew Han Solo’s jacket is made of real Nerf- leather?

We also learn why Kylo Ren’s lightsaber has a cross- shaped guard – cos of a cracked crys­tal in­side.
