We've become accustomed to aliens and robots in science fiction movies speaking perfect English, even though they come from galaxies that are far, far away. In all fairness, we could learn their lingo, and that is the purpose of these crash courses in essential extraterrestrial phrases. With sly illustrations and plenty of wit, the guides also include a sound module so that you can hear samples of these uncommon languages before you embark on your space journey.
Droids are made to be reliable, helpful, and daring, but they can be frustratingly stubborn—even R2 units. This convenient guide will help new droid users bypass that malfunction and utilize them to their full capacity, like convincing a droid to play back full messages, serve beverages and hors d'oeuvres at events, diagnose mechanical issues on an X-wing, or just walk the dog. Jake's paintings re-envision key figures from the Star Wars saga—we rather like the image of an irritated Princess Leia trying to send her plea for help to Obi-Wan using a stubborn droid—and the 10 different droid phrases on the module here are demonstrated by none other than R2-D2.
