The Clone Wars Character Encyclopedia

Posted By Mike on July 17, 2010

Here's a great new book coming out this July 21st from DK Publishing. Star Wars The Clone Wars Character Encyclopedia is the go-to guide on all the major and not-so-major heroes, villains, droids, and creatures that inhabit the colorful and exciting galaxy of Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series. Geared for fans from 8 to 80 years old, and written by New York Times bestselling author Jason Fry, Star Wars The Clone Wars Character Encyclopedia introduces more than 200 Jedi, Sith, Senators, Clone Troopers, Droids, Bounty Hunters, Pirates and so much more!

I've had the pleasure to flip through this book and check it out recently, and I have to say this is a must have for any fan of The Clone Wars animated television series. Over 200 pages of reference material for fans who want to know more about the characters from The Clone Wars. I had a blast flipping through the pages, and I found myself remembering various episodes as each page revealed another character. I loved learning all the names of the various Clone Troopers, as I have a hard time since they all look the same. The full color pics look great, and the stats plus insider scoop on each character really make for a fun read!



Right now you can pre-order a copy at Amazon.com and save 32% for only $11.55!



UPDATE: While the new post at SW.com, featuring an inside look at the Star Wars: The Clone Wars Character Encyclopedia, displays the same images as above, it also includes a new interview with author Jason Fry. Check out the excerpt below and then make sure to click here for the full read.


"The book is extremely extensive -- listing everyone from important Jedi Masters to the smallest maintenance droid -- how did you go about deciding which characters were featured in the book?

The folks at DK had made an initial list, which I and then Lucasfilm helped refine. Happily, 200 characters is a lot, so there was space for not just all of the major characters, but also lots of the interesting minor characters who fill up the nooks and crannies of the Star Wars galaxy. The process was essentially to get all the main characters, cover all the important characters from the individual episodes, and then look for cool troopers, droids, Separatists and others.

Was there anyone left out that you wish you could have included?

A challenge with any book is that books have longer lead times than animation. We had only partial art for some of the final episodes from Season 2, particularly the arc about young Boba Fett. So that meant no Boba, Jax, Whiplash, Hotshot, or Mace's R8 droid. And I really wanted to see Fong Do! But hopefully some of those characters will show up in Season 3."
