The Star Wars Trilogy Sourcebook, Special Edition is a supplement for Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game published by West End Games in 1997. Some of the material was reprinted and updated from the previous The Star Wars Sourcebook and The Movie Trilogy Sourcebook, while other material was newly written to reflect the Special Edition changes in the original trilogy.

The locations, characters, weapons, and vehicles shown in the Special Edition of the original trilogy are described, with backstory and game statistics. The new characters appearing in the Special Edition are described, as well as Lak Sivrak, an alien whose brief appearance in the Mos Eisley Cantina was cut.

The new material was written by Drew Campbell, Steve Miller, Paul Sudlow, and lead developer Eric S. Trautmann, while several West End Games writers are credited with the previously published material.
