The Skywalker Saga is nice to look at and re-experience classic moments from the saga, but doesn't offer much beyond that.

Meg Dowell - The Skywalker Saga - Children's Book
Meg Dowell
Editor-in-Chief
Delilah Dawson is a fantastic writer, and I applaud her for how much work she must have put into condensing all eight saga films into one book. All the iconic quotes are there, and it was actually a quick and convenient way to review the entire saga before The Rise of Skywalker comes out. However, from what I can tell, this book was marketed to young kids (and their parents ...?), and I just don't think the actual book and its intended audience were well matched. The stories seem like they would be hard for a child to follow, and if I were a parent, I don't know if I would be able to justify buying a 300+ page storybook for my youngling. HOWEVER, I love having this book to display on my shelf and the art is absolutely gorgeous. I expect to flip through it again from time to time, and I don't regret reading it at all. I just wouldn't necessarily recommend it for young kids. I, very much an adult, thought it was lovely.

While the Skywalker Saga shows a lot of love for the saga films, the rushed writing and bare bones plotting can't quite live up to its potential. If you want to look at beautiful art while thinking about how much you love the films, this is the place to go, but you'd be better off reading full novelizations or watching the movies if you're looking for high quality stories.
