    Majority of our species love Star wars. I am one of them. So when they released a graphic version of original trilogy, I had to read it! Verdict? Mixed. This is a 208 page adaptation of the 6 hour-long story. One of the biggest issue is the way the writers had to rush the story because, well... this is a 208 page adaptation of the 6 hour-long story.

    5 stars Not bad. Liked to be able to see the original trilogy in comic book form. The art looked a little weird though. Besides that, just fine. It will be interesting to see what happens in the Star Wars saga next. Can't wait to read more Star Wars material!!!!!

    The good: Precious Moments type illustrations of the classic characters. The bad: Skipping over a lot of the minor scenes to fit the page-count, which makes it feel rushed.

    It was interesting to read a graphic novel of Star Wars after seeing the movies. There was more detail and there was things that you might have missed in the movies. This was a really quick read, taking me only a couple of hour in total to finish it. If you don't like graphic novels and just want to get reading them over with I would recommend this book to you.

    OK, maybe I wasn't the target audience... The biggest knock from the other reviews is that the story was done in 208 pages and they are completely correct. It was a rush job and also a money grab for Disney doing this. I wasn't a fan of the art. Chewie look horrible. He had the skinniest legs you can do and. These comics continue to not be able to draw a girl/women. It is almost like they have never really looked at one... Leia looked like anywhere between a 8 yr to 14 yr old.

Most of the time she looked like ahh shucks poor me... It was a little creepy her looking at Han, kissing him (it reminded me of Matt M from Dazed and Confused where he gets older, but the girls stay the same...he looked like he was in his early 20's looking to score with a 14 yr old) and her in the bikini outfit (I didn't want to look). Lando looked like he was still 40. Boba Fett looked good. Some errors in the book though. Page 59, on page 59, Luke is wearing stormtrooper armor at the Yavin battle briefing), page 113 they got the order of the bounty hunters mixed up, the text (page 127, the somewhat unidiomatic "Shortly later") and I know some of the wording is incorrect. And this is really lame because they have Greedo shooting first. They didn't show Leia bringing in Chewie to Jabba. They left out the Boba Fett's death (I know it is conduced, but come on) So basically blah, but maybe let my 2 and 4 year old look at it...

    I got this to introduce my daughters to the Star Wars franchise. They enjoy graphic novels and they are a bit young for the movies. (But soon!) The GN does a pretty good job of hitting the high points in the movies and covers the "scary" parts pretty well. My girls enjoy it!

It feels like a money grab to release a straightforward retelling of the original Star Wars film trilogy, with so-so artwork.

The worst offense is that the events of the films are intact, but the humor and charm of these films are mostly either missing or lost in translation. Also, not to belabor the artwork, but the characters look like lame Mad Magazine versions of the real life actors. This is particularly disappointing in light of the top notch artwork and humor of the Star Wars and Darth Vader comic series (both of which I wrote GLOWING reviews on Garth's Blog). On that note, the cartoonish rendering of Darth Vader couldn’t be less menacing. It’s less reminiscent of Darth Vader and more like Dark Helmet. I never thought I'd never utter the following words in ANY context, but… Skip the book, and watch the films instead.

    I will be using this to teach hero’s journey and character archetypes to my English as a second language students. They art is great and they include everything from the movies. I just wish there were more speech bubbles. There are several instances where it’s just pages of sound effect bubbles and nothing else. I will supplement this with pages from the actual script and the movie so as to beef it up a bit. Great for entertainment but not the best for teaching.

    I really enjoyed this book. It was almost just like watching the movies. It was cool that it included the whole original trilogy. The one issue I had with it was it was a little short. I was able to read it in a little bit more than an hour. I think the book skipped over too many little parts that made a difference in the end. I think that overall the book was really good and the illustrations were also very cool. I would recommend most Star Wars fans to read it.

    Strange adaptation rushes through, makes everything look cute, misses the tone half of the time. It's really low on descriptive text, but the art doesn't really make up for it. 3rd graders would eat it up, but it's far from the quality of the junior novelizations, the collected "storybook" or the various comic book adaptations out there.

    A fun little comic. BUT for Star Wars fans it may be aggravating. It's too rushed, but it's also too vague. If you haven't seen the movies, you won't necessarily understand all of it, but if you have seen the movies, it will probably irritate you how much is left out. Still fun though.

    This is a very basic version of the original trilogy, skimming over all three films. Cute for kids to read.

    This does a good job of condensing the 3 movies into a graphic novel that can be read in under an hour, and I liked the art style.

    An odd and pointless Star Wars publication. This "graphic novel" is in many ways the opposite of Hong Jacga's absolutely brilliant adaptation of the original trilogy as a web comic last year. In Hong's version, intriguing new scenes were added, characterization was explored in different and deeper ways, and every familiar scene was depicted from an angle or perspective different from the movies. It was everything that a graphic novel adaptation of Star Wars should be. But this one? I don't unders An odd and pointless Star Wars publication.

In Hong's version, intriguing new scenes were added, characterization was explored in different and deeper ways, and every familiar scene was depicted from an angle or perspective different from the movies. It was everything that a graphic novel adaptation of Star Wars should be. But this one? I don't understand it at all. The writing abridges the life out of the original trilogy. Most humor is gone, and major plot points often don't fare much better. It's like watching the three movies at double or triple speed. As for the art, I don't have a problem with the cartoony style of the characters, but the artists seem, strangely, to have ignored the distinctive lighting of most of the scenes. Instead, everything is lit almost the same: neutral, plain, and usually too bright. This gives the book a bland, monotonous look, which is disappointing for what ought to be a visually interesting story. There are occasional flubs in both the art (on page 59, Luke is wearing stormtrooper armor at the Yavin battle briefing) and the text (page 127, the somewhat unidiomatic "Shortly later"). While the book itself feels like a nice production--nice size, pleasant feel--the contents are really disappointing. I wonder if this is an example of "too many graphic novel designers" spoiling the book. Disney Books obviously assumes you won't care who actually created this book, because the creative team is relegated to the very end of the book, and even then it's a little difficult to figure out who did what. I imagine it would have been far better for Disney to choose a normal-sized graphic novel team (writer, artist, inker, letterer), and give them the freedom to realize this adaptation in whatever way they'd like. As it is, the "corporate team" approach has not been ideal for this book.

    Just couldn't finish this. I couldn't even get twenty pages in. I understand you have to speed things up if you're going to get all three movies into a volume of 200 pages. Still... Wow! If you haven't watched the movies, I can see how this would be an interesting read because the sequences may not seem sped up. BUT why would you not just watch the movies instead?! This would be much better if they extended the story and avoided the serious hoops they had to jump through in order to progress the Just couldn't finish this. I couldn't even get twenty pages in.

It happens right off the bat and it's a bit dizzying, especially if you've watched the movies. I'm not even a huge Star Wars fan, and this is a disappointment. I just can't recommend this.

    Missing some of my favorite scenes and lines from the movies ... a danger of any adaptation, I suppose. Fun artwork, all the same. And for any elementary teacher librarians out there ... fairly elem. friendly. Yes, Leia is stuck in the same costume in Jabba's palace but it's not, what's the word I want. Overly accentuated?

    I read this in just one sitting, and as much as this as this is a mostly direct translation of the Original Trilogy as we know it, it's still a fun read. The artwork is (mostly) great, with a strong sense of motion, beautiful colors, and impressive paneling. The 3-stars come from the graphic novel's lack of anything new to offer to the story's we know so well. This is undeniably meant for a younger audience, and in that regard, it works great, but the cuts to the narrative made here trim the sto I read this in just one sitting, and as much as this as this is a mostly direct translation of the Original Trilogy as we know it, it's still a fun read.

As someone who fell in love with Star Wars as a kid because of its characters, this was a little disappointing. The character models were also less-than-desirable. The villains all looked great, but Han and Luke just looked...wrong. Too animated, or too awkward, they didn't look authentic to the characters and just came across as silly a few times too many. Still, this is a fun and refreshing visualization of the original Star Wars trilogy, and I enjoyed the colors of the artwork very much. There were panels I honestly stopped reading just to admire, and the art has a good sense of motion and action.

    This book was also great. The book still misses some parts from the movie, and also shortens some key moment, but still this book is great, just like the Prequel Trilogy Graphic Novel (but watch the movies first). I especially like the art the author uses, it looks great on the Star Wars characters. I guess anyone would enjoy this book, it's a great page turner! Even though some people don't like that they rush the story line, they kinda have to, otherwise the story would be too long to finish i This book was also great.

    3 Stars for the illustrations, 2 stars for all they left out. It IS a juvenile graphic novel, in case you were not sure, and as others have written it need to be an extra 90 pages to include the small but important part they left out. All three of the original movies are here, however Luke look just as young in Return of the Jedi as in A new Hope. The didn't age him at all. Read it in 30 mins. Not sorry I read it, but glad I read a library copy.

    I'm glad this book exists because it gives a fine overview of the trilogy for kids, it does that fairly well. The art is also good - clear, compelling, and well stylized. However, as a stand-alone it had its faults. I felt I had to explain many logical leaps in the abridgment (but perhaps that's my love for the movies showing). Also, several lines are strait from the movie, which made me smile but were often inappropriate for the context of the abridged story.

    Like the adaptation of the Prequels to comic book form, this adds nothing and deletes large portions of the action. I’d understand if the art was at the level of the other current canon comics, but it’s this childish cartoon instead. So it doesn’t work for someone just wanting to read through the canon in comic book form, it doesn’t feel like a part of the saga, it feels like a child’s illustrated bible.

    This graphic novel adaptation is pretty much the Cliff's Notes version of the trilogy, but, it still proves to be a fun read. Impressive artwork, dialogue mostly verbatim from the films, and even an opening title crawl at the start of each film made this a winner for me. Sure, you could always watch the films...but, if you've already seen them a thousand times, isn't it time to look at them through a different lens?

    Reed Benson

    Not a bad rendition. I like the art; it's cartoony, but not too ridiculous. It does fall into the trap of not having enough space for its content. Several scenes, especially the fights, don't have enough time to breathe. That's really my biggest criticism of the whole thing. But I enjoyed reading it. Not sure how it would come across to someone who hasn't seen the movies...but how many people fall into that category, really?

    Several best known lines and scenes were left out (e.g., 12 parsecs, the thing inthe trash compactor that tries to drown Luke) and they went with the altered skarlac from the reissued movies, as well as Annakin looking young when he and Obi-Wan and Yoda appear at the end of "Return of the Jedi;" which is why I only Gave this four stars and not five.

    This is definitely a child friendly version of the Original Trilogy. Dialogue is exactly from the movies, just printed in speech bubbles. The artwork is very cartoonish and cutesy, simplistic. I wouldn't deem this necessary reading or even a decent collection piece. It'd be a nice way to introduce Star Wars to a child but other than that, skip this one. It just looked too goofy for my taste.

    Almost everything is same as movie.A lot of dialogues are cut obviously since its a comic and it feels like I am missing a lot. The facial art seemed weird however everything else was nicely illustrated. Felt like I read the whole movies in 20-30 mins each.

    The art is alright, though not really the best style for Star Wars. The colors are beautiful. There are better adaptions of the movies, however, including the radio dramas and the junior novelizations.

    A great graphic novel of the Star Wars trilogy. The story follows the movies, although it leaves out some of the smaller scenes and shortens others. The graphic art is excellent and you can't help but read the lines in the voices of the characters. Perfect for kids and adults alike!
