STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS – THE VISUAL DICTIONARY
released OUT NOW! 80 pages | Hardback Author Pablo Hidalgo Publisher Dorling Kindersley
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.
