Inside The Worlds of
Star Wars: Episode I
by Kristin Lund, Hans Jenssen, & Richard Chasemore

Published by DK Publishing


Scott's Rating:   4 out of 4


This book is similar in content and format to the Episode I Incredible Cross Sections book. This book takes us to the various worlds of Episode I and lets us explore even deeper beyind the sets of the film. Incredibly detailed cross section drawings feature the Naboo Hangar, the Republic Senate, the Pod Race Hangar, and much much more. The book describes what stuff is, how it works, why it's there, etc. The book is also filled with photos of the film, text descriptions and stats on the planets, and a galactic map.



Scott:

    To quote Darth Vader, "Impressive! Most impressive." This book is amazingly well done and a great resource for all Star Wars fans. It has a perfect mix of photos from the film, original drawings, trivia blurbs, and full text descriptions. It all comes together for a great presentation.

The drawings are absolutely stunning. You could spend hours staring at them and still discover new things. It is packed with detail. The Naboo Hangar is a true highlight. If you were confused why the hangar was right next to a plama generator with bottomless pits during the final battle, then this will help explain it. Not only does it lay out the floorplan in a logical way, but it elaborates on it. Why were there energy walls turning on and off? What did the equipment do? Why was that architecture so different from the rest of Naboo? And how was Palpatine behind the construction of it? This book explains it. It also might hold some clues to Episode II.

Also of interest is the Pad Race course. It shows the exact layout of where the race went and points out the places where events of the film occourred. A handy resource. The Galactic Senate drawing is also impressive. The structure is so much more elaborate than what is seen in the film. Each Senate pod has behind it full quarters customized for each and every species. A water filled Quarren habitat is shown alongside Neimoidian ones, Wookiee ones, and more. Good stuff. Overall this is a great book that will make a wonderful addition to your collection.



Scott:

    Like the other DK books in this series, the book is very large. That's good because it allows the drawings to be made bigger and the detail more easily seen. However, it makes storage rather difficult on bookshelves.



Scott:

    Anakin's Hovel, at first glance, doesn't appear to have a bathroom. If you look closely, though, there's a blurb that says it's upstairs. That's a long walk to pee in the middle of the night!
