Star Wars Encyclopedia is a 1998 reference book written by Stephen J. Sansweet, the director of content management at Lucasfilm and science fiction author. The book defines, explains, and illustrates the characters, creatures, settings, objects, events, and concepts that appear in the science fiction saga Star Wars. Data is drawn from the original trilogy films, radio dramas, novels, short stories, graphic novels, and computer games. Star Wars Encyclopedia contains an introduction written by science fiction writer Timothy Zahn. The book was succeeded by the three-volume Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia (2008).
- Curiously Darth Vader has a blue lightsaber and Luke Skywalker has a red lightsaber on the cover, contrasting with their respective depictions in Star Wars canon. The explanation is that the art was taken directly from Drew Struzan's art for the Return of the Jedi movie poster and was left unaltered as an homage to that poster.
