Discover the world of Star Wars’ mechanical wonders, the droids, through this hugely fun and fully interactive reading experience.

Droids have always been at the heart of Star Wars, from the classic adventures of C-3PO and R2-D2 to the valiant exploits of BB-8 in the latest episodes of the saga.

Droidography is the ultimate in-universe guide to these lovable characters with insider info on their function and role in the Star Wars universe. Covering every known model of droid, including free-rolling astromechs, protocol units, KX-series security models, and even bounty hunter droids, the book is filled with fascinating facts and insights that show just how crucial droids are to every faction in the galaxy, from the Rebellion to the First Order. With thrilling original illustrations and amazing special features including lift-the-flaps, textures, and more, Star Wars: Droidography is guaranteed to thrill the saga’s legions of young fans.

Readers can interact directly with the narrative through a variety of inserts, lift-the-flaps, and other ephemera.

from starwars.com:

Where would our Star Wars heroes be without droids? BB-8 completed Poe Dameron’s mission and delivered the map to Luke Skywalker. Plus, he drove an actual AT-ST and rescued Finn and Rose. Chopper saved the Ghost crew on numerous occasions, including some solid undercover work. R2-D2 managed to escape the stormtrooper-infested Tantive IV, find Obi-Wan Kenobi, and get the Death Star plans all the way to the Rebellion on Yavin 4. Because of that, the planet-destroying battle station was destroyed. (Also, without Artoo, Luke would’ve most likely followed in his uncle’s footsteps and never even picked up a laser sword. He certainly wouldn’t have gotten out of that trash compactor.)

So maybe the better question is: Where would Star Wars itself be without droids?

Written by Marc Sumerak and illustrated by Joel Hustak along with Massimo Travaglini and Arianna Sabella, Droidography is a deep dive into mechanical beings across Star Wars — from icons like R2-D2 to new favorites Triple Zero and Bee Tee, i.e., Doctor Aphra’s psychopathic droid pals introduced in Marvel’s comics. And maybe best of all, it’s all told from the point of view of Roger, the good-guy battle droid from LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures.
