Description

Whether doing business with the Hutts or trying to get a decent haircut on Coruscant, the Galactic Phrase Book & Travel Guide is an invaluable tool for galactic travelers. Vividly illustrated by Sergio Aragonés, this handy volume covers the basics, including

• Greetings—H'chu apenkee, o'grandio lust: “Greetings, glorious host” in Huttese. It doesn't hurt you to be nice, and it might hurt you not to.
• Travel arrangements—Zat x'ratch keezo bompaz ha sheep: in Bocce, “That scratch was there when I rented the ship.”
• Asking directions—Chi ita lungee: “I am lost,” in Ewokese. Don't be afraid to seek help in the forest.
• Dining—Dis foosa isa berry good: “this food is good.” It's always best to compliment your Gungan hosts.
• Bargaining for your life—Huwaa muaa mumwa: “Can I buy you a drink.” in Wookiee-speak. Try it. It just might work.

A must have when traveling without your protocol droid!

Bonus!—An exclusive “Behind the Sounds” look at making of the Star Wars movies from Academy Award-winning Sound Editor Ben Burtt. Discover the secrets behind the roar of Chewbacca, the chatter of the cantina crowd, and R2-D2's unique eloquence.
