Recommends it for: those wanting to see inside plans of things
(note: this book has spoilers for Episodes I to VII (but not the Last Jedi or Rogue One))

If you're one of those people who love seeing the details of inside a house, or a city etc. and you happen to also be a Star Wars fan, this is a treat for anyone from reading-kids to adults.

This book shows you so much from Episode I to VII, and you get much information on planets and their inhabitants, buildings, cities, locations, battles, spaceships, armies, and chases. Some pages open further, and some

While this book was not as great as it could have been, I must say the detail and love of Star Wars lore is quite astounding. Had I been the same eight-year-old who poured over those other Star Wars, James Bond and other cross-section picture books, I would have found hours of imaginative entertainment in this work. All things brought together though - as well as my age and disability to escape the ever-constant clutching of mind - I found the book sometimes boring and full of not-so-vital ...more

Incredible! The illustrations and detail are unbelievable! This will be on my coffee table for a long, long while, as I am already tempting to dip back into it and look for details I might have missed the first time through. Recommended for any fan of the Star Wars universe and would make a great gift for that Star Wars Junkie in your life.

I read the new, 2017 edition and it was wonderful. It took you, in movie order beginning with the Phantom Menace, through key locations in the Star Wars Universe. You learned about the geography and topography of the locations themselves, as well as history and who played what roll. The photos and illustrations were vibrant and just fun to peruse. An enjoyable book to just sit and flip through.

Full disclosure: I LOVE reference books. You know, the ones made for franchises like Star Wars or Harry Potter where they go into intricate detail about how the world works, where everything is, etc. So this book was right up my alley.

It's another update to the Star Wars Locations series, this time including locations from The Force Awakens. This update's important because by including the maps from I to VI, it re-canonizes a lot of content from the original "Legends" universe into the new

First of all I would say don't buy this book. Check it out from the library or pick it up if it's lying around in a friend's house (as I did). Movie tie-ins are exploitative; don't spend your hard-earned $40 to feed the commercial machine.

That said, at its best this book is clever and entertaining. It has a great "Where's Waldo" feel to it. There are lots of juicy details to peruse.

And it could be fun for scientists (physicists, astronomers, astrobiologists, et al.). There is much to ponder and

Fantastic book for people who love cross-sections, maps, and everything Star Wars. You can spend an hour or more on a single spread and still not notice every detail or find Waldo.

An encyclopedic look at all of the locations in the Star Wars film universe both planets (e.g. Hoth) and also individual places (e.g. Jedi Temple).

It was good. More of a reference book than a page turner.

Full of illuminating details and intricate technical illustrations. Some of the captions and labels seem a bit silly, but overall this will be enjoyed by Star Wars fans of all ages.

Nice pictorial of various locations in the Star Wars universe. It's a bit heavy on the prequel episodes, but is still quite interesting. Makes for a nice addition to your Star Wars reference library.

Part of Star Wars’ sense of wonder has always been the minor details behind the galaxy. As often as the series is described as a fantasy saga in space – requiring audiences to merely accept certain fantastical ideas and supernatural powers – the technology and complexity of the locations always hinted at something bigger just underneath the surface. Once again, it fell to DK Publishing to help bring that world to life.

Star Wars: Complete Locations is a compilation covering the entire saga in a

Mňa osobne táto kniha zaujala hlavne kresbami daných oblastí, na ktorých sú zakreslené trasy hlavných postáv vo filmoch.

Takisto chválim knihu ako komplet. Očarí zvnútra i zvonka, pretože je v nej naozaj veľmi veľa kresieb. Veľmi pekný úvod knihy, kde sú vypísané planéty Star Wars sveta. Potom je kniha rozdelená podľa epizód. Takže všetko ide pekne postupne a človek sa medzi toľkými mestami a oblasťami nezamotá.

Pre mňa jednoznačne kniha, ktorú by každý fanúšik mal mať. Pokiaľ viem kniha vyšla

Science Fiction/Non-fiction

This excellent non-fiction book explores many of the exotic locales of the Star Wars Saga, treating them as real. The book presents full illustrated schematics of battles, fortresses, cities, and palaces with diagrams that identify the uses and names of props and areas seen in the movies. Explanations are give for the practical reasons of complex architectures, ranks and unit designations, and overlaying maps of most of Star Wars. I really enjoy reading books that

No hay mucho que comentar en este libro es una guia visual de los escenarios de las Trilogias clasica y la moderna, el nivel de detalles en las imagenes es sorprendente y hay algunos datos interesantes en las descripciones, como un fan de Star War me gusta. Pero el hecho que lo reediten cada vez aumentandole los escenarios de la siguiente pelicula me fastidia un poco, es solo querer lucrar de manera descarada.

I have all the Locations editions, so personally this update was only useful for the new intro pages, a coupld of new pages of TFA and for the newly added or altered text compared to the previous edition which is 'Legends' (although most of it has remained exactly the same). If you don't have it yet, this book should belong in every SW-library if you love the SW-universe. It's got so many great details, it's dazzling.

Immensely impressed by the art and depth of this book. It gets really into weeds for a fictional world, but the nuggets of insight on my face planets (Naboo and Bespin) were neat. Stunning art and well-crafted writing.
NOTE: scanned whole thing, but did not read in full---more of a reference guide than a read-through

It’s rare to have a coffee table book that could actually double as a coffee table, or at the very least a nightstand. All jokes aside this is a great look at and into the major planets and buildings from the first 6 Star Wars films. A definite must have for the Star Wars fan.
