The Visual Dictionary of Star Wars, Episode I - The Phantom Menace Reviews

    OMG! Apparently I will be reading every.single.word in every.single.visual.dictionary in this series. When I grabbed these at the library I expected my son to flip through these books, check out the pictures, maybe read a bit out loud to me but instead he is dissecting every piece of information, asking me to sit with him while we theorize, discuss, and extrapolate. He is just seven and now wants to write a prequel to Episode One. What could be better?! And all because of these visual dictionari

    OMG! Apparently I will be reading every.single.word in every.single.visual.dictionary in this series. When I grabbed these at the library I expected my son to flip through these books, check out the pictures, maybe read a bit out loud to me but instead he is dissecting every piece of information, asking me to sit with him while we theorize, discuss, and extrapolate. He is just seven and now wants to write a prequel to Episode One. What could be better?! And all because of these visual dictionaries and the wealth of information within them.

    I am not one of those people who knows all the intricate details of the Star Wars saga. Now there is a younger person (my son) in my life, who saw Episode One, I find myself answering questions about characters and events.

    This book is fabulous. It is the usual beautifully crafter Dorling Kindersley book with superb photo illustrations. Anyone familiar with the "Eyewitness" travel guides will appreciate the style.

    I am not one of those people who knows all the intricate details of the Star Wars saga. Now there is a younger person (my son) in my life, who saw Episode One, I find myself answering questions about characters and events.

    This book is fabulous. It is the usual beautifully crafter Dorling Kindersley book with superb photo illustrations. Anyone familiar with the "Eyewitness" travel guides will appreciate the style.

    The book details in archaelogical type detail (the author is an archaeologist - he says he approaches Star Wars as if it is an ancient civilization - looking for all the evidence of how it works) all the artefacts, and the people / characters, giving background details and physical details. It also explains some history and motivations which help you know the people and events easier.

    Very detailed book on "SW: Ep1" it's characters and weapons.

  • Jesi

    This was my first time reading a Star Wars book. I loved the little details that are left out in the movies because ideas and thoughts are hard to convey. It did a very good job at transferring the characters from screen to book without lose of who they were by over explaining things.

  • Lauren Vogt

    There's always something so satisfying in expanding the universe of a fandom. Seeing the creators make backstories to characters we only glimpse, of what all the Star Wars gadgets are and "how they work," and the culture of Star Wars makes the galaxy a richer and deeper place.

    I'm all for worldbuilding, however flawed the prequels may or may not be!

  • Trevor Meissner

    I like the descriptions of the characters and the dialogue of the story

  • Matthew

    Audiobook - A good book, some extras added from the film

  • Marcelo

    This is an excellent book if you like to see what's behind the curtain of the movie magicians. Not only its glossy, large pages offer the opportunity to scrutinize every detail you might have missed watching the movie, it also allows you to appreciate the except to which Lucasfilm's moviemakers went to recreate the Star Wars Universe more than a score of years before the original Star Wars (now "Episode IV") feature film.

    There some disturbing things, though. Episode I was right befor

    This is an excellent book if you like to see what's behind the curtain of the movie magicians. Not only its glossy, large pages offer the opportunity to scrutinize every detail you might have missed watching the movie, it also allows you to appreciate the except to which Lucasfilm's moviemakers went to recreate the Star Wars Universe more than a score of years before the original Star Wars (now "Episode IV") feature film.

    There some disturbing things, though. Episode I was right before George Lucas started to doing every single thing with CGI or motion capture, so this is that ring-point between creative solutions and "fuck it, let's throw a lot of money into this and do it in CG". So you get to discover that Qui-Gon's communicator is a women's leg shaver in disguise.

    All in all, it's a good coffee table book to have, although it's a little too short for my tastes.

  • Melissa Namba

    for being a book about something I 100% don't care about it was good. I feel like based on the information presented, I could write a short report on the movie if I needed to, without actually seeing it. the book is well written and presented as other "fact" based books in the series.

  • Elon

    It's always nice with background information for such a big franchise, but some of the descriptions make little sense, and others just show that the Star Wars world just might just have been made to look interesting but with little thought put behind it.
