Overview

The Star Wars Trilogy (Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions) by George Lucas, Donald F. Glut, James Kahn



"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 Luke's nemesis, Darth Vader, 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.

I remember the day I bought this book I was 14 years old now I am 21 and I can truthfully say I have read this collection over a hundred times. I have read this book so much that the binding is starting too break down. It has the three classic STAR WARS moives in this collection (A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back(my absoulet favorite) and The Return of The Jedi.) When I read this book i can vision what is happening,feel the excitment of flying in the cockpit of the Millienum Falcon with Han and Chewie, feel Luke's sorrow when he finds out Vader is his father and the truth Obi Wan tells him how he must kill his father to save the galaxy, and be as couragoues as Princess Leia on the Endor Moon. I truelly love the classics and the way it is written is brillantly done. Great Detail and dialouge make you feel like you are really there. My Only regret is that I read this book so fast I was done in no time, so I read it again highlighting my favorite parts. Whoever buys tihs book are in truely for a ride of adventure... Enjoy....

After my mom got me hooked on the movies, I HAD to go back and read the books.Now I can go back and find conversations in the movies that I didn't notice at first. My mom now wishes she had NEVER shown us those movies!

Love the original trilogy, this book may even be better than the movies. Loved the extra content in here.

Well, first i didn't know about actually reading about the movies. I thought it would be cool but there are SOOO many star wars books i didn't know which one to read first. I enjoyed EMPIRE STRIKES BACK the best. The reason i gave it four stars is because i dont know why they used the 'D word' so much. They don't in the movies! I would recommend it but...stick with the movies for a great thrill.

As usual for the B&N collectible editions, it is amazing quality. I do have a request though... This I think the 4th cover variation for the original trilogy. They are all amazing, but when oh when will you do one for the prequel trilogy?!? Please B&N, please! It would be amazing to see the prequel trilogy of novels get a similar treatment. I know you would get plenty of fans who would love to have it sitting side by side with one of these on the shelf. So I beg you B&N! Please give us a Star Wars Prequel Trilogy (Barnes & Noble Collectible Edition)!!!

I really love Star Wars, but I'm trying to figure out why the trilogy and the prequels aren't available as Nookbooks when several of the Star Wars universe are. Please make the original Star Wars trilogy and the prequel trilogy available as Nookbooks soon. This is one of the reasons I bought my Nook. I'm running out of shelf space for all the Star Wars books I own and would like to be able to read them when I travel without having to lug a bunch of hardcopies with me.
