Ultimate Star Wars is in essence the encyclopedia of Star Wars.
This large 320-page hardcover published by DK Books is meant to be a comprehensive reference and companion to the Star Wars universe.
As you would expect from DK Books, Ultimate Star Wars is packed with lots of information and wonderful pictures.
There are four sections to the book, namely Characters and Creatures, Locations, Technology and Vehicles. Each character, creature or subject is covered in chronological manner as they appear in the films and the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebel. There are also key events pulled out from the timelines included. This should refresh your memory regarding the universe while you wait for the next film Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Some of the information have been published in other Star Wars books over the years. For example, there are the vehicles and spaceships from Star Wars: Complete Vehicles or planet information from Star Wars: The Essential Atlas, etc. That is however no excuse not to get this book because everything is now collected in one beautiful and convenient volume.
My review is short. If you want more in depth reviews from Star Wars fans, you can find them on Amazon.
Highly recommended to all Star Wars fans.
