Star Wars: Complete Cross-Sections
DK Publishing
Review by Lando da Pimp

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of Star Wars, DK Books has released The Complete Cross-Sections, uniting all four Cross-Sections books in one volume. The 152 page, hardcover book contains information on every ship / vehicle used in the six Star Wars films. John Knoll, the visual Effects Supervisor for the prequels (episodes I – III) writes a forward for the book.

The book is a very detailed encyclopedia chronicling all the Star Wars ships and vehicles providing in depth look at the interior of the ship, a viewpoint we never see in the films. Each schematic also provides details on the ships design, speed, dimension, crew capacity, and any other specific details.

The book is divided into four chapters, Episodes One, Two, and Three being the first three chapters, and the original trilogy making up the final chapter. I really enjoyed seeing the interior design and layout of the Naboo Cruiser, Padme’s Starship, and Palpatine’s Shuttle, as these did not see that much screen time. I also found it interesting to see how vehicles like the Anakin’s pod racer and General Grievous’s wheel bike works. My favorite look is from the final chapter featuring the Millennium Falcon. While yes it true this is the most famous ship from the films its just the most interesting!

This book is just massive. It’s a great coffee table book with numerous detailed foldouts with great artwork by Hans Jenssen and Richard Chasemore. If you haven’t purchased the previous Cross-Section books before this would be your best value as it contains all four previous books. Even though there will be no more films we continue to see the Star Wars universe expand in other media. Recommended.

You can purchase this book from Amazon.com.
