Star Wars: The Force Awakens Visual Dictionary / Star Wars: The Awakening of Power: The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Pablo Hidalgo

"Star Wars: Episode VII-The Force Awakens takes us back to the "Galaxy Far, Far Away" for the first time in 30 years since the destruction of the second Death Star at Endor. JJ Abrams' sequel introduces us to a whole new cast of heroes – Rey the scavenger girl of Jakku, Finn the runaway Stormtrooper of the First Order, and Resistance X-Wing ace Poe Dameron – and villains – Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, and General Hux, all of the First Order – along with the Legacy cast from the classic trilogy. Profusely illustrated throughout with photos, production art and original art, the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Visual Dictionary chronicles every character, weapon, starship, droid, creature, and alien to be found in the highly anticipated Star Wars sequel."

As per the leaked synopsis of the JJ Abrams directed space thriller, the ruthless and power-obsessed prince Kylo will frantically search for the lightsaber on the planet of Jakku. However, before arriving on the deserted planet, Rey finds it and forms alliance with Finn, the runaway Stormtrooper. Eventually they find the Millennium Falcon and meet Han and his loyal friend Chewee.

The newly formed alliance then starts the quest to find the real owner of the fallen lightsaber – Jedi master Luke Skywalker.
