A Star Wars authority deepens and extends our appreciation of the Star Wars galaxy with this imaginative "history" featuring striking full-color artwork--created exclusively for this entertaining volume--that examines the persuasive messages used to intimidate and inspire the citizenry of the galaxy far, far away. . . .

A Star Destroyer hovering over a planet, symbolizing Imperial domination.

An X-wing delivering a message of resistance and hope on behalf of the Rebellion.

A line of armed, faceless First Order stormtroopers promoting unity.

These are all examples of propaganda used by the Empire to advocate strength and maintain fear, and by the Rebel Alliance to inspire hope and win support for the fight. Star Wars Propaganda takes fans into the beloved epic story as never before, bringing the battle between these two sides to life in a fresh and brilliant way.

Star Wars Propaganda includes fifty dazzling pieces of art representing all seven episodes--including material related to Star Wars: The Force Awakens--specially produced for this companion volume. Each page combines an original image and a short description detailing its "history: " the in-world "artist" who created it (either willingly or through coercion), where in the Star Wars galaxy it appeared, and why that particular location was targeted.

Packaged in a beautifully designed case and written by a franchise expert and insider, Star Wars Propaganda also includes ten removable art prints, and is sure to become a keepsake for every fan and graphic artist as well.

Pablo Hidalgo

A lifelong Star Wars fan and recognized expert on the depth and history of the saga, Pablo Hidalgo started writing professionally on the subject in 1995, penning articles for the original Star Wars role-playing game from West End Games. In 2000, he became a full-time Star Wars authority at Lucasfilm, joining the company’s online team as a content developer for the official website.

In 2010, he became a Brand Communications Manager for Lucasfilm, ensuring consistency in the expression of the brand across a variety of channels. When Lucasfilm returned to active film production on the Star Wars saga under the leadership of Kathleen Kennedy, Hidalgo moved into the Lucasfilm Story Group as a creative executive working on the development of Star Wars storytelling across all media, including feature films, animated television, video games, novels, comic books, and more.

In addition to his numerous published Star Wars works, he has written books about G.I. Joe and Transformers. He lives in San Francisco.
