The Star Wars Archives is a monster behind-the-scenes book

You could fill an entire library with books about the production of Star Wars. There are extensive making-of compendiums, behind-the-scenes reference guides, volumes of concept art, official biographies, narrative nonfiction, and more that are full of every imaginable nugget of information about how George Lucas created his universe. The arrival of a new Star Wars book is hardly news, but The Star Wars Archives a new, massive tome from art book publisher Taschen — is nonetheless worth picking up.

Written by film historian Paul Duncan, the book is an exhaustive collection of behind-the-scenes interviews, pictures, concept art, and script pages that charts the course of production for the first three Star Wars films and the sometimes messy development process that generated them.

There’s a lot to take in. Duncan structures it as an oral history, including interviews with George Lucas, concept artist Ralph McQuarrie, sound designer Ben Burtt, and actors Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher. Even if you’re deeply familiar with Star Wars and its history, the book largely flows from Lucas’ contemporary interviews, providing a deeply insightful look into how the films came together. Duncan told that he spent three days interviewing Lucas, and came away with an “unexpected thread”: his desire to connect with people, not only with Star Wars, but with his two prior films, THX-1138 and American Graffiti.

The picture that emerges of Lucas is of a filmmaker and storyteller who knows the exact type of story that he wants to tell. Concept artist Joe Johnson (who would later go on to direct films like The Rocketeer, October Sky, and Captain America: The First Avenger) recounted how Lucas directed him to draw up scenes from the battle of Hoth before a script was in place. “The process was then was to lay out random shots and pick some that would conceivably work” while Lucas worked on the script, using the drawings as inspiration.

But what’s most striking about the book isn’t just the behind-the-scenes stories; it’s the concept art, behind-the-scenes images, and stills that make the book a joy to simply flip through, even if you’ve watched the films dozens of times. This is an astonishingly beautiful volume that highlights the best part of the Star Wars universe: its incredible visuals.

Hopefully, this isn’t the last such book from Taschen. As the subtitle — Episodes IV-VI, 1977-1983 — says, this volume only covers the first three installments of the franchise. Whether you like them or loathe them, the prequel trilogy, sequel trilogy, and standalone films have generated a wealth of content for fans. A follow-up volume (or two) would be a welcome thing to peruse, hopefully providing some new insight into those newer installments.

All of this comes at a cost — $200 to be precise — which means that it isn’t exactly an impulse buy. It’s also massive: fully open, the 13-pound book takes up the entirety of a small coffee table. But if you have the money and space for such a book, it’s a volume that rewards endless flipping through all of the images, interviews, and minute details that have kept fans coming back to the films time and time again over the years.

Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Star Wars/Archive 8

This is an archive of past discussions. Do not edit the contents of this page. If you wish to start a new discussion or revive an old one, please do so on the current talk page.


I would like to suggest that the Star Wars Collaboration of the week be renamed to the Star Wars Collaboration of the Month. This is what is being done in other WikiProjects (to give more time working on articles, and/or because membership may be less than active).

Name changes:

(If I missed any, feel free to add them.)

Once we have consensus here, we can list the category for cfr (possibly speedy), and someone can ask to have a bot to do the page moves, and redirect fixes. - jc37 14:12, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

This has been here for almost a year. I'll give a little more time before I just do it. - jc37 07:26, 7 October 2007 (UTC)
Not that anyone cares by this time, but I've performed the moves. (The links above are updated to the targets.) The Star Wars COTM is also marked historical until such time as someone wishes to reactivate the process, though, since it appears that WP:COTM, and its successor WP:AID, are both inactive/historical, I doubt we'll see this process reactivated. - jc37 23:10, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Articles facing severe editing

The articles, The Force (Star Wars) and Dark side (Star Wars) are going to be edited after a week af having placed requests for citations be added to statements in the article. These articles have very little in the way of citation. WP requires secondary sources of information, considering a requirement for inclusion. The week of waiting expires on 9/16. I would direct the attention of anyone wishing that these article remain without any removed ext venture forth and provide solid citation in keeping with WP policies. - Arcayne(cast a spell) 04:37, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

Actually, not only secondary, but tertiary sources are preferable. Evidence of others' original research which is verifiable. But I know what you mean, and yeah, those articles (I'm sorry to say) do suck right now. They need lots of improvement. --lincalinca 12:50, 24 September 2007 (UTC)
Don't misunderstand me. Linca - the writing there is particularly well-written (from a writer's pov) and well-thought out (kind of a refreshing thing to see, actually); it just suffers from no real connective citation that could quickly launch it to GA status, I kinda felt bad kicking out all the uncited stuff and speculation. If some folk wnet back through some of those articles and properly cited them, they could earn the right to be GA. - Arcayne(cast a spell) 04:17, 9 October 2007 (UTC)


I know I am not part of this WikiProject, but I thought it wouldn't hurt anyone if I simply pointed out that the lightsaber article could be greatly improved. ZouavmanLeZouave 20:46, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

Removed PROD from Cularian System

Greetings! I wanted to let your project know I found a PROD for the article on the Cularian System on the grounds of real-world notability. I removed it because under that justification, the entire Category:Star_Wars_regions_of_space is not notable. There are several star systems in that category, along with a rather large article on Star Wars galaxy (which is listed as part of your project). I suggested in the PROD removal justification that the separate galaxy articles be reviewed, and possibly merged into the overview galaxy article, but I'm definitely not the person to take that on, as I don't even own episodes 1-3 :-) Thanks guys. DLPanther 13:53, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Article proposal

It strikes me as odd that there's no chronology of tutorship in the jedi arts. This seems like something that would be quite a task to construct, but very applicable to the project nonetheless. The toughest part wouldn't be the actual construction of the chronology but referencing it. Tough, but not impossible.

I'd propose laying it out (to begin) something like this:

Except of course, you know, accurate? The colours could indicate a person's allegiance (Jedi, Sith, Dark Jedi, NJO or mixed). It can also be drawn up to indicate whether or not a person is EU or standard, all based on the colors. I've pretty muchy just chucked in dark red for Siths, blue for contentious and green for Jedi. What do you guys think? This is obviously a bit hogde-podge and could be heaps better, but it's a start. --lincalinca 12:40, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Cool idea! The flow chart looks good, although wouldn't Palpatine also be Vader's tutor? Anyway, it has my support! :) Sincerely, --Le Grand Roi des CitrouillesTally-ho! 15:32, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

October - December 2007 Roll call

We haven't had one in a long while. Time to find out who's actually active. (And to purge the active members list once again.) - jc37 07:32, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

  1. I'm here, though doing more "behind the scenes" work, than article editing these days. - jc37 07:32, 7 October 2007 (UTC)
  2. I am still here, watching the articles for vandalism and a possible renomination of ROTJ. GregJonesII 17:32, 7 October 2007 (UTC)
  3. Yeah, I'm here, just, you know... wandering about. Occasionally updating stuff. It's a pretty daunting tast, to be honest. There's so much stuff missing and most of what's here is written so terribly in-universe, it's hard to undo that. But yeah. Present. --lincalinca 04:10, 9 October 2007 (UTC)
    Hey, just so you know, Lincalinca, can you fix the number in your comment? You accidentally forgot to put a # (number sign) in your comment. That would be much appreciated GregJonesII 09:23, 9 October 2007 (UTC)
    What? Yes I did? It's right there? I'm numerised as #3...? I'm sure I did that. Did somebody else do that? I'm sure it was me. --lincalinca 12:14, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
  4. Present. Returning to work on the vehicles articles, with the occasional odd AfD to get people riled up. --EEMeltonIV 10:02, 9 October 2007 (UTC)
  5. Here, sorta - editing out all the cruft and uncited, unsourced info - Arcayne(cast a spell) 19:40, 28 October 2007 (UTC)
  6. I'm here, I'm just not all that active because of school. Grey Maidentalk 18:17, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Battle of Yavin

Battle of Yavin could use some serious work. In its current state, it doesn't really abide by WP:WAF. A few vocal editors who claim the article doesn't meet WP:FICT have persisted in turning it into a redirect for Star Wars: A New Hope. I don't think that's the course we should take; but we might consider merging Battle of Yavin, Battle of Hoth, and Battle of Endor into Galactic Civil War. Ichormosquito 11:10, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

Well, the galactic civil war started way BBY, it's just that at BY, it became a "serious" threat to the empire (hence Seth Mcfarland's parody in robot chicken saying it was "blown up by a bunch of F#$*&^*&% teenagers"). I'd recommend calling it "Battles in the Star Wars film saga" and encompassing the Naboo vs Trade Federation battle, Geonosis clone siege/insurrection and the taking over of the Invisible Hand as notable battles within the film saga, so as to cover all seiges within the six films, new and old. --lincalinca 12:19, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
Oh and all of the articles need a serious re-write anyway because they're very heavily in universe anyway. --lincalinca 12:30, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
Sounds like a good idea. Ichormosquito 13:00, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
Wow, Inca - stop reading my thoughts, you debbil (grn). I was going to say many of the things alrready stated here. 'Galactic Civil War' is a pretty broad term, which could apply to any number of galactic civil wars in scifi, and not just Star Wars. This doesn't appear to be a problem right now, but I can foresee it becoming so; perhaps adjusting the article title to reflect the nature of the civil war might sidestep these potential issues. I would propose Galactic Civil War (Star Wars) be the new name.
As well, I don't think merging these articles right now is the best course of action for any of them. Maybe later, but at this time, all three articles are a bit on the bvloated side and suffer from terribly in-universe pov - so much so that in some of them, I feel as if I have misnavigated and ended up Wookipedia instead. The Sith, Dark Side and Force articles suffered fromt hat as well, and I had to trim away all that which was uncited or too in-universe to remain. - Arcayne(cast a spell) 21:31, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
What if we renamed it "Death Star trench run"? As a notable movie scene, I think it passes muster. We could include production notes; its impact on the special effects industry; and excerpts from scholarly criticism, while still retaining a small section devoted to plot summary. Ichormosquito 02:48, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
Now we're talking productively and out of the box! --lincalinca 08:19, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

Help with Star Wars Galaxies

Hi. is anyone watching the Star Wars Galaxies article? there have been some major edits recently, and then reverts of those edits, but i can't tell which are vandalism, and which are legitimate. Appreciate any help. Thanks. --Steve, Sm8900 14:59, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Star Wars video game task force proposal

This is an idea I've been mulling over for some time, but only decided to propose now. Though it is more of a WikiProject Video Games task force, I thought it made sense to mention it here. I noticed it says on the main page of this WikiProject that it's effectively a collaboration of numerous projects, but I thought one task force specifically focusing on one aspect of Star Wars (and one which doesn't actually have so many high-quality articles) would be pretty useful. It's fairly self-explanatory, so check out the proposal. I'd be interested to hear what you think. Una LagunaTalk 18:52, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

Hi fellow Star Wars fans, Cliff Wampa is being prodded, just thought I'd let you know. --Montchav (talk) 23:34, 21 November 2007 (UTC)


Recently, I've noted some references being added to a few articles from here. An example of these references would be something like this. There is no provenance to this info, and I am concerned about how reliable it is. Thoughts? - Arcayne(cast a spell) 05:27, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Well, it's official information on the official site for the series... I'd say it's reliable enough to be cited, though it sort of depends on how it's being cited. EVula// talk // ☯ // 05:35, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Star Wars comics problems

Star Wars: Republic: there seems to be an article for just about EVERY issue and/or storyline of the series. Category:Star Wars comics also seems to hold a bit of this issue clutter. Wikipedia shouldn't be a guide to every issue of a series. I brought this up a while ago here (and mentioned it to the creator of the articles), however not much seems to have been done. RobJ1981 (talk) 21:04, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

I'm resurrecting this question -- I've flipped through most of the Republic comics and their mostly just a plot blurb and list of characters. Can anyone articulate a reason not to have them redirect to the main Star Wars: Republic entry? Perhaps transplant the plot summary blurbs into a list on that page? --EEMIV (talk) 19:07, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Lack of referencing

After browsing through half a dozen articles in the wikipedia Star Wars project, I have to say that, whilst fairly readable and well written, every single one of them was crying out for a

start -->


Proper referencing needs doing on these things, otherwise they come across like a big wodge of fan fiction.--feline1 (talk) 17:26, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Over the past month, I've taken steps towards adding citations and footnotes to Princess Leia's article. However, almost all of these have been only for the two sections of the article I created . The whole article (along with many other Star Wars characters like Luke Skywalker and Han Solo) is unsourced, I notice. But I can only do so much, especially considering I don't know where a lot of the statements in Leia's article specifically come from. I'm currently researching the never-ending "Han shot first" debate, and will probably be of more help to Han Solo's Wikipedia page as soon as I can get info sorted out. Anyone else mind taking a crack at it? — Cinemaniac (talk) 20:51, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Suggestion on article organization

I have a strong suggestion about the organization of the primary articles about Star Wars - it can be found at Talk:Star Wars#Mass pruning, but basically I'm suggesting that since

  1. Star Wars original trilogy and Star Wars prequel trilogy are essentially empty and very weak articles with little more than synopses and lists
  2. Star Wars purports to be an article about the franchise itself

that the trilogy articles should be merged into something like Star Wars films, and the mass of information about the films that can be salvaged from Star Wars (ie: is sourced and written properly) be moved there, so that the Star Wars article can truely be written as being about the franchise, and not all about the movies with an "oh yeah, there were also books and tv movies" tacked on at the end. TheHYPO (talk) 13:36, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Project page problems

  1. In actually displaying the templates in the template section, the Collab of the week templates all mis-appear at the bottom of the project page instead of where they should be.
  2. What is the point of the lightsaber image on the right column? Just seems to serve to waste a lot of space on the page

Cheers TheHYPO (talk) 07:23, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Princess Leia Organapeer review

I've listed this article for peer review because it right now seems oddly cluttered and, despite my adding of a lot of references, it lacks reliable sourcecitations. Although I've already requested another peer review for another article, as long as it helps the articles get better, I've got the time. Any helpful comments are appreciated, as this should help me in expanding other Star Wars-centric articles (particularly bios like that of Luke Skywalker and Han Solo, also in dire need of certain expansion). Thanks. — Cinemaniac (talk • contribs) 03:23, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

Army of the Republic

I through a bunch of tags on it, so I thought I'd bring it up. The article has no sources to verify it's claims what-so-ever, it has no third party sources to defend it's notability, it rambles, and looks like it's pretty much all original research. I'd recommend a complete rewrite, or maybe just transwiki to wookieepedia and redirect it to some other article here? Well, I'll let the experts sort it out, just throught I should bring it up. --Falcorian (talk) 08:12, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

I've noticed that the Star Wars sequel trilogy just barely survived an AfD and looking at it, it needs a lot of cleanup, so there is quite a lot of work to be done on that, if we don't want it to go through AfD again.--EclipseSSD (talk) 17:23, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Star Wars comics images

Hello all. I just wanted to give you a heads-up. Several Star Wars comics images are up for deletion because they don't have fair use rationales. (I would imagine some screenshots have been tagged as well.) In case the Comics project can't get to them all in time, you may want to take a look through User:Hiding/no-rationale#S and add rationales if you think it appropriate. (The Star Wars images mostly begin with "sw".) Thanks! --GentlemanGhost (talk) 01:29, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

Hiding also prepared this handy-dandy worksheet you can use if you so desire.

{{Non-free fair use rationale |Article = <!-- THE NAME OF THE ARTICLE WHERE THIS IMAGE IS USED --> |Description = <!-- FOR EXAMPLE: Cover to '''New X-Men #114''',<br /> July, 2001. --> |Source = <!-- EITHER IT'S A SCAN OR IT'S FROM A LINK --> |Portion = <!-- EITHER A COVER OR A PANEL OR ARTWORK --> |Purpose = Image is used for purposes of illustration in the above-named article, a subject of public interest. |Resolution = Small size unsuitable to use for high quality reproduction |Replaceability = Image is protected by copyright, therefore a free use alternative won't exist. |other_information = Although the picture is originally copyright, it is covered by fair use because: # It is a low resolution copy of a comic book cover, hence, only a small portion of the commercial product; # The use of the image will not affect the value of the original work or limit the copyright holder's rights or ability to sell or distribute the original comic book; # Copies of this image could not be used to make illegal copies of the comic book; # The image is used as the primary means of visual identification of topics in the article.

Sith edits

I would like to get some eyes on the Sith article. I am encountering a lot of info being added with very little in the way of proper or even reliable sourcing. The article needs some re-writing, but by folk who know not to add a lot of cruft. - Arcayne(cast a spell) 05:22, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

Star Wars: Empire

I have added Star Wars: Empire issue pages to be merged into the main pages because the Star Wars: Empire page has nothing but the list of issues, and the issue pages themselves are stubs, and I think it would be better if they are merged. Also the issue pages on Star Wars: Republic are up for deletion because they are not independently notable, violates WP:NOT#PLOT as an extended plot description with no real-world content or context. Just thought to let you know. Gman124 (talk) 17:42, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

There should be a general article on Star Wars weapons

Instead of having "lists of weapons", there should be a general article on Star Wars weapons, citing examples in a typical sentence/paragraph format. Perhaps sections on each type of weapon would be a good idea, but this would definitely beat having multiple borderline-notable lists. — Deckiller 05:05, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Kessel/Kassel/Castle claims that "Kassel" is also the German word for "guarded area". Being a German native speaker, I have to point out that this is simply not true. I'm not sure how to edit the article because the etymological proximity to English "castle" is there, and I know that Dutch "Kasteel" is also close by, but I can't think of a German word that sounds anything like Kassel and has this meaning. --Daniel Klein (talk) 12:14, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

StarWarsProject: Articles of unclear notability


there are currently 23 articles in the scope of this project which are tagged with notability concerns. I have listed them here. (Note: this listing is based on a database snapshot of 12 March 2008 and may be slightly outdated.)

I would encourage members of this project to have a look at these articles, and see whether independent sources can be added, whether the articles can be merged into an article of larger scope, or possibly be deleted. Any help in cleaning up this backlog is appreciated. For further information, see Wikipedia:WikiProject Notability.

Yep, that's my question. We don't do this elsewhere (or aren't supposed to), so we should purge this crazyness (making Sith the code word for red and whatnot). I suspect its a template issue. Where is that? - Arcayne(cast a spell) 16:42, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Found it, but my relative unfamiliarity with html caused me to bollix up the code whilst attempting to remove the color assignments (I immediately self-reverted). Someone else needs to purge it. Might I ask for some assistance in doing so? - Arcayne(cast a spell) 16:53, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Could I help?

I am not yet involved in this "Officially" however I have been making edits to things in the star wars portal, so I was wondering if it would be possible for me to help. Thank you... Stealth (talk) 12:18, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

Lightsaber combat - a grand crufty mess

I would like to get some eyes on the Lightsaber combat article. I am encountering a lot of info being added with very little in the way of proper or even reliable sourcing. The article needs some re-writing, but by folk who know not to add a lot of cruft. Most of the referencing seems to be in the form of speculative end-notes. I posted a note in discussion asking for better citation three weeks ago, and have received no input on the post. I am about to do some wide-spread removals, so some clean-up sooner would be better than later. - Arcayne(cast a spell) 18:09, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

A Story for Star Wars day

Back in 1979, we were discussing which image -- which photo -- would be the first one we'd release for "The Empire Strikes Back". Not that anyone was actually worried that people wouldn't come to see the movie. Still, you want to keep fans and the general public interested and excited, so you think carefully about how you want to publicize and promote the film.
