This top-secret cache reproduces highly sensitive intelligence that traces the Rebel Alliance from its formation through its tireless fight against the Empire. From its earliest beginnings in covert opposition to Imperial operations, the Alliance could not trust its most sensitive information to risk of digital interception. Instead, it was kept in a secure case, traveling with key senior Rebel personnel. Lost in the chaos surrounding the Battle of Endor, it was rediscovered many years later by the newly formed Resistance.

Richly illustrated and full of strategic detail and history, the files also feature additional annotation by Resistance members such as General Leia Organa, Mon Mothma, Poe Dameron, and Admiral Ackbar, making this a crucial read for fans seeking a deeper understanding of the saga.

THE STAR WARS HISTORICAL SOURCEBOOK Vol. 1: 1971 – 1976

book (USA)

publisher info:

written by W.R. Miller

foreword by Gary Kurtz

Pulp Hero Press (imprint of Theme Park Press)

from the author’s page:

I began collecting articles, reviews, books, anything that talked about the film. The behind-the-scene stories were fascinating. I decided to catalog these articles as I collected them. I consulted hard-copy indexes in libraries to acquire more published material. Years later the Internet opened more venues of acquisition, through eBay, online library reference services and digital print runs of newspapers and magazines. I visited libraries in Germany, England, France, Canada and across the U.S., and have gotten researchers to help me in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the Netherlands and Denmark. The project is currently titled The Star Wars Historical Sourcebook, An Annotated Bibliography Detailing the Original Star Wars Trilogy, Episodes IV, V and VI, from 1971-1990.

What was the reaction to Star Wars by Alfred Hitchcock, Albert Brooks, Gene Roddenberry, George Takei, moon astronaut Buzz Aldrin and the original Flash Gordon, Buster Crabbe? Did you know a Star Wars ballet performed for two years in Oklahoma City? Who persuaded Harrison Ford to give up his carpentry job to accept the role of Han Solo? Did you know that Peter Mayhew, as Chewbacca, spoke his lines in English (prior to dubbing) in the first two Star Wars films? How did the digital revolution begin with Lucasfilm? What was the tragic “Jedi Homicide” in Kansas City? Did George Lucas really intend to make twelve Star Wars films? Stories like this and more are all documented in the project.

Volume One covers the years 1971 to 1976. Volume Two will cover January to June, 1977. Volume One will be published July 17.

solicitation copy:

Star Wars exploded onto our cinema screens in 1977, and the world has not been the same since. After watching depressing and cynical movies throughout the early 1970s, audiences enthusiastically embraced the positive energy of the Star Wars universe as they followed moisture farmer Luke Skywalker on his journey through galaxies, meeting extraordinary characters like mysterious hermit Obi-Wan Kenobi, space pirates Han Solo and Chewbacca, bumbling droids C-3PO and R2-D2, bold Princess Leia and the horrific Darth Vader, servant of the dark, malevolent Emperor.

Writer, director, and producer George Lucas created the modern monomyth of our times, one that resonates with the child in us all. He achieved this by forming Industrial Light & Magic and developing cutting-edge special effects technology, which he combined with innovative editing techniques and a heightened sense of sound to give audiences a unique sensory cinematic experience.

Made with the full cooperation of George Lucas and Lucasfilm, this first volume covers the making of the original trilogy – Episode IV: A New HopeEpisode V: The Empire Strikes Back, and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi – and features an exclusive interview with Lucas. The book is profusely illustrated with script pages, production documents, concept art, storyboards, on-set photography, stills, and posters.

“Love people. That’s basically all Star Wars is.”
— George Lucas
