Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith: The Visual Dictionary is a guide to Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith being the fourth book in Star Wars The Visual Dictionary series. Written by James Luceno and published by Dorling Kindersley. Published on April 2, 2005 along with the film novelizations and a number of other reference books, the book came out almost a month before the film, and as a result it introduced a number of elements from the movie prior to its release. It was republished as part of Star Wars: The Complete Visual Dictionary and was to be reissued with expanded content as Revenge of the Sith: The Expanded Visual Dictionary.


This invaluable Visual Dictionary brings DK's world-acclaimed visual style to the climactic final Star Wars prequel. High-quality annotated photographs and stills from the movie explain every important feature of the characters, creatures, costumes, droids and equipment.

Author James Luceno worked in partnership with Lucasfilm, ILM and DK to research this unique reference book, gaining exclusive access to amazing photographic material and insider information. Key objects have been created specially by expert Consultants from ILM - including the first-ever view beneath General Grievous' head armor.

The result is a unique and fascinating reference work that reveals the characters and creatures of Revenge of the Sith as they appear nowhere else!
