This is a comprehensive guide to the characters, creatures, droids, planets, and designs of "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story". There are a lot of new elements in the film which expand the Star Wars universe, but there are also many connections to the saga films, namely "A New Hope". The book discusses the many aspects of the film, both old and new. Of course, being an Ultimate Visual Guide, the book centers around high-resolution photos that fans will love. The book maintains the high editorial standards, as well as quality printing and layout, that fans have come to expect from DK Publishing and the previous Star Wars visual guides.
Regardless of how you feel about any given Star Wars film, one thing that is just about undeniable is that each and every installment in the Star Wars series has wonderful design work. "Rogue One" is no exception, and "The Art of Rogue One" goes in-depth into the art and design of the characters, locations, and key sequences in the film. I had mixed feelings about the film on the whole, but I was incredibly impressed by the work of the art department and production design team. This book is a must-own if you enjoyed the film or enjoy great artwork.
"LEGO Star Wars: Build Your Own Adventure" is a book of ideas to supplement existing Star Wars sets. Obviously, there are many LEGO Star Wars sets specific to a certain character or scene in the films that can be purchased. But this book shows ideas for things related to Star Wars that can be built with common LEGOs not specific to any set.
"Star Wars: The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary" allows fans to study the characters, creatures, droids, props, and other elements of the film. Having owned and read all the previous Star Wars visual dictionaries, I was excited to get this. It's exactly the same as the others - each major character gets 2-4 pages, while minor characters and locations get 1-2 pages. Included in each profile is typically over a dozen images related to that character. For example, the pages on Rey include her outfit, speeder, survival satchel, blaster, staff, and more.
