Overview

"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away . . . "
 
The release of George Lucas's Star Wars in 1977 launched an epic saga that has changed how we view science fiction. Experience the wonder and magic of the Star Wars universe with The Star Wars Trilogy, a collection of the first three Star Wars novels and a collective exercise in modern myth-making.
 
Star Wars: A New Hope, by George Lucas, is the coming-of-age story of Luke Skywalker, a farm boy who finds himself a key player among Rebel forces revolting against the tyrannical Empire. This novel introduces many of the saga's iconic characters: smuggler Han Solo, his co-pilot Chewbacca, Princess Leia, the droids 3-CPO and R2-D2, Luke's mentor Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Darth Vader, Luke's nemesis, who incarnates the dark side of the Force.
 
The Empire Strikes Back, by Donald F. Glut, continues the thrilling story with the Empire in hot pursuit of the Rebels as they flee to their new outpost on the planet Hoth. Luke trains with the mystical Jedi Master Yoda to channel the Force and hone the skills he needs to become a Jedi Knight--and in a showdown with Darth Vader he learns a stunning revelation about his heritage.
 
Return of the Jedi, by James Kahn, concludes the trilogy with the Empire embarked on the construction of a new Death Star to replace the one destroyed by Luke and the Rebels. In alliance with the Ewoks of Endor, the Rebels fight the Empire to destroy its new weapon while Luke engages in his climactic final fight with Darth Vader
 
George Lucas provides illuminating introductions for each of the three novels.

This is the fifth Barnes and Noble Collectible Editions book that I have bought, the third of which I have ordered online. Out of the three that I ordered, two were damaged (even though this collection comes wrapped in plastic. I would say at least 1/4 of the books I have ordered online have been damaged in some way, which is really bad for a book COLLECTOR and lover like me. I take great pride in my collection and their condition. I hate that I have become a member partly so I wouldn't have to pay the shipping and handling. But I live about a half hour from the nearest B&N and have to drive there every time to exchange it for a new one (if I can find one that isn't damaged in the store as well). Sometimes, it makes me wonder how books make it to their shelves or into a shipment box.

Cover art differs a bit, but beautiful edition none the less.

Star Wars by George Lucas is amazing!. It is just like the movies, only better. It narrates the original story of Luke Skywalker and his journey to save Princess Leia, along with Han Solo and Ben Kenobi. Also it explains the huge Galatic Rebellion war against the Empire. Geore Lucas is one of those writers that likes to take his time to explain how everyone is thinking, so if you don't really like books that start off a bit slower, this book not for you. But by a few chapters, the pace increases, which is really good. I personally loved the book. Since I have already seen the movies, I know what is going to happen, but thanks to the book, I know what each character thinks, especially Darth Vader, the best character in the book.

I love this book. I love everything from the cover to the fact that it is all three stories in one.

This book was a Christmas gift for my 13 year old Grandson. He told me it was his favorite gift. He has been a Star Wars fan for quite some time.

This book is very beautiful, it is a must have if you are a fan of Star Wars. However, the reason why I didn't give 5 stars is because, I think the book would have been perfect if there were some interior illustration.

A very nice addition to my collection, but this version doesn't have the fold out poster that the C-3PO (Jedi) and R2-D2 (New Hope) versions have. Empire Strikes Back is missing, so is there another version that has it?

The story is pretty good. My son, who is a big fan of the series, loves reading it. However, we have had the book about a year, and the cover has already split where the front cover meets the edge of the spine. It's a pretty cover, but I really expected the cover to hold up well over a year.

Great book for Star Wars fans and a great edition to the leatherbound collection. It looks stunning on my bookshelf with my other leatherbounds!

 First I would like to point out the cover is nicely done. All black with gold and  silver trim. Star Wars written on the front cover and on the spine. The pages are  neatly bound together in the binding. It looks good on the shelf. It makes a good  collectors piece for people who love to read. I was thrilled Barnes n Nobles  came out with this classic. Its timeless. A good addition to my other sci-fi book collection.    I have started reading the book as soon as i got it. I'm still reading it up to now. The fun of reading this book is to watch the adventure unfold as you go  through the pages. And immerse yourself in the adventure. As George Lucas t tells it.   The story itself is quite good. considering that it was created and written by George Lucas. Its actually three books in one volume. With each book Lucas  tells a different story, but it talks about the journey of the young jedi knight, Luke Skywalker. And other adventures that other characters take. The romance between Han Solo and Princess Leia. Which only begins from the middle of Empire Strikes Back on through Return of The Jedi. The climaxes of the Battle of Yavin. the lightsaber duels between Luke and Darth Vader in Bespin. And on the Death Star. And the Battle of Endor. Each of the separate stories have a good ending to it.   One of the best stories i've ever read. I'm not disappointed.

This book is amazing.  I have always been a big fan of the movies, and being able to actually read what George Lucas wrote originally is amazing.  To add to that, the artwork on the binding is great looking.

Purchased this as a Christmas gift to myself and just finished the book. Great from start to finish! Love the quality of the leather bound book. The Prequel Trilogy would be nice now! Maybe for new Christmas perhaps?

Outstanding artwork which stands out and compliments the other Leatherbound collection.I cant review the contents of the book as i will never unwrap my copy. Jurassic Park and Narnia had great artist, Star Wars Trilogy Tops Everything! I hope Barnes and Noble has JAWS in the works!

I bought 2 of these trilogies for Christmas presents. One for my husband and the other for his best friend. They both LOVED them. The packaging is so unique. It opens like a book and inside you have graphics and the CDs. It is sure to become a collector's favorite item. I would recommend this to anyone who has a sci-fi fan in their presence. It is the complete first 3 movies in one package.
