The YT-1300 Corellian Freighter gets the Haynes treatment! This is a Haynes Manual based on the YT-1300 Corellian Freighter, the best-known variant of which is the Millennium Falcon, the iconic spaceship appearing in the original Star Wars trilogy, plus The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, and Solo: A Star Wars Story. Using brand-new cutaway illustrations, together with other art and photographs, this manual provides the most thorough technical description of the YT-1300 available, making it essential reading for all Star Wars fans.

from the publisher:

The YT-1300 is a legendary starship, best known for its association with the professional gambler Lando Calrissian, and later with the smugglers Han Solo and Chewbacca the Wookiee, who respectively made numerous modifications to transform their YT-1300 light freighter, the Millennium Falcon, into one of the fastest ships in the galaxy.

The YT-1300 Millennium Falcon Owners’ Workshop Manual traces the history of the Corellian Engineering Corporation’s YT series of starships, and the development of the YT-1300 model line before focusing on the Millennium Falcon. The vessel’s evolution – from common freighter to luxurious pleasure craft to battered warship – is described in detail and illustrated by numerous photographs, line art, floor plans, exploded diagrams, and stunning computer-generated artwork by renowned Falcon experts Chris Reiff and Chris Trevas. Text is by Ryder Windham, author and co-author of more than 70 Star Wars books.

This Haynes Manual, which includes details of the Millennium Falcon appearing in the original Star Wars trilogy, plus The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi and Solo: A Star Wars Story, is the most thorough technical guide to the Millennium Falcon available, and is fully authorised and approved by Lucasfilm.

hardcover (English-languaged) (Germany)

publisher info:

edited by Paul Duncan

hardcover (600 pages)

Taschen

ISBN 978-3-8365-6340-6

$ 200.00 (€ 150.00)

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

STAR WARS MEETS THE ERAS OF FEMINISM

Weighing all the Galaxy’s Women, Great and Small

hardcover (non-licensed) (USA)

publisher info:

written by Valerie Estelle Frankel

hardcover (366 pages)

Lexington Books (Rowman & Littlefield)

ISBN 978-1-4985-8386-2

solicitation copy:

Star Wars defined popular, big-screen science fiction. Still, what many viewers best recall is assertive, hilarious Leia, the diminutive princess with a giant blaster who had to save them all. As the 1977 film arrived, women were marching for equality and demanding equal pay, with few onscreen role models. Leia echoed their struggle and showed them what they could be. Two more films joined in, though by the early eighties, post-feminism was pushing back and shoving the tough heroine into her pornographic gold bikini. After a sixteen-year gap, the prequels catered to a far different audience. Queen Amidala’s decoy power originates in how dominated she is by her massive royal gowns. This obsession with fashion but also costuming as a girly superpower fits well with the heroines of the time. The third wavers filled the screens with glamorous, mighty girls – strong but not too strong, like the idealistic teen Ahsoka of Clone Wars. However, space colonialism, abusive romance, and sacrifice left these characters a work in progress. Finally, the sequel era has introduced many more women to fill the galaxy: Rey, Jyn, Rose, Maz, Qi’ra, Val, L3-37, Captain Phasma, Admiral Holdo, and of course General Leia. Making women the central warriors and leaders while keeping them powerful and nonsexualized emphasizes that they can share in the franchise instead of supporting male Jedi. There’s also more diversity, though it’s still imperfect. Hera and Sabine on the spinoff cartoon Rebels and the many girls in the new franchise Forces of Destiny round out the era, along with toys, picture books, and other hallmarks of a new, more feminist fourth wave for the franchise.

Valerie Estelle Frankel approaches Star Wars as more than a collection of multi-media narratives; she frames the franchise as a not-so-far-away galaxy of intertwined stories, perspectives, cultural touchstones, and identities. Like the force itself, this book connects the seemingly disparate, bringing into conversation the voices of feminist theorists and film critics with fans, actors, and directors. The result is a wide-reaching and useful analysis of Star Wars films, novels, comics, television shows, and even merchandise.

THE MILITARY SCIENCE OF STAR WARS

paperback reprint of the May 1, 2018 hardcover (non-licensed) (USA)

publisher info:

written by George Beahm

paperback (368 pages)

Tor Books

ISBN 978-12502-0851-4

$ 8.99

solicitation copy:

George Beahm, a former U.S. Army major, draws on his experience to discuss the military science of the sprawling Star Wars universe: its personnel, weapons, technology, tactics and strategy, including an analysis of its key battles to explain how the outmanned and outgunned rebels ultimately prevailed against overwhelming forces.

Contrasting the military doctrine of the real world with the fictional world of Star Wars, the author constructively criticizes the military strengths and weaknesses of Darth Vader’s Galactic Empire and Kylo Ren’s First Order…

From Star Wars: A New Hope (1977) to Rogue One (2016), this timely book demystifies the operational arts in an accessible and entertaining way for military personnel and civilians.

Replete with a glossary of military terms, this book is supplemented with an annotated bibliography.
