Scott's Rating: 4 out of 4
This large, hardback book has photos, details, and histories of characters, droids, ships, creatures, weapons, environments, cities, and objects from Episode I. This includes those seen in the film and those NOT seen in the film.
This is an absolutely incredible resource for Star Wars fans. There are items in here that you'll find nowhere else. Highlights include the Neimoidian birdcage (cut from the film), bounty hunter Aurra Sing, Yoda's lightsaber, junk from Watto's shop, the Jedi Council, the Senate Guard, the Jedi Utility Belt, and more. You'll find out the symbolism of the Queen's clothes, who her parents are, and how she came to power, as well as who her predecessor was. You'll find out the names of all the fish seen under the Naboo swamp (funnily named Ray, Mee, Faa, Laa, Tee, etc.). You also get a better view of the senators. I highly recommend you add this to your collection.
My only complaint is some of the little notations around the pictures. For example, it points to Sidious' face and says "hidden visage". Or it will point to Yoda's ear and say "Sensitive ears". While these are kind of unnecessary, don't getta me wrongo. A majority of them are very useful.
Senator Orn Free Taa. He looks like the love child of Jabba and Max Rebo.
