More than a year ago we already reported was from The Star Wars Historical Sourcebook, a series of books that will tackle the detailed history of Star Wars.

One of the sources of this book is my own site; StarWarsInterviews.com, on which more than 170 interviews with the cast and crew of Star Wars.

I am therefore very proud of the mail I received from WR Miller, the author of this book, earlier today: The Star Wars Historical Sourcebook Volume 1: 1971-1976 will appear on 17 July 2018 and be on sale at Amazon.com (price nnb).

No less than Gary Kurtz (producer of Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back) has written the foreword in which he has to say this:

"Bob Miller has done a monumental job on this sourcebook and any true

Star Wars fan or scholar must have this work in their collection. "

More information about this book (which contains the 400 pages) is on Miller's site to read and of course there will be a review here!

Episode IX

Three weeks ago the recordings for Star Wars: Episode IX have started and except for a single photo of JJ Abrams, it remained suspiciously silent about the upcoming and, for the time being, last saga film.

Until today; because via The Sunand fansiteMakingStarWars.netnew photos have appeared on the internet. The latter brought out the photos of most likely the Millennium Falcon.

The Sun images below are more interesting, since there are several characters to see (including Finn, Chewbacca and Poe Dameron). These images are also made in the neighborhood of London (where most of the film is shot) and besides some main characters we also see a lot of extras.

Have you noticed anything about Poe's clothing? Poe looks suspiciously like someone we've seen earlier this month: on the pilot chair of the Millennium Falcon in this - until today only - picture of Episode IX:
