Featured Article: The Definitive Guide to the Canonical Star Wars Timeline


The Star Wars timeline is complicated. With a recently reestablished canon, a tendency toward nonlinear storytelling, and an ongoing creative surge of new films, television series, books, and comics expanding the already massive universe, it can be incredibly difficult for even the most dedicated among us to keep the Star Wars timeline straight. This unofficial timeline explainer offers a brief illumination of each period and the stories set within.

A Star Wars proper! Must read for everyone

There are not enough word to describe how awesome this book is.

Once I started I could not put it down. Very enthralling, entertaining, and captivating.

I laugh a lot, I shed some tears, I held my breath, I gasped, and I laugh some more!

All and all great book for everyone, from kids to adults, from hardcore fans to people that have never heard of Star Wars.

Great book from cover to cover. The art is fantastic and exactly what the book was conjuring in my mind as I read it.
Jim Cummings is amazing as Hondo and Hondo as Han Solo. brought this book to an even higher level

Highly recommend to listen the audiobook as you also read STAR WARS PIRATE'S PRICE.

More Hondo, please.

I would gladly listen to Hondo (at least as voiced by Jim Cummings) tell a great many tales. While some of the star wars books I've listened to in recent years have been slightly painfully earnest - this book captures the fun of Star Wars better than anything I've heard in a while.

Heck - I'd enjoy hearing Hondo's retelling of other stories (Prequels please!) just to get them in this voice and vibe.

And to the people complaining about the "not so great" voices for Chewie and Han - I'm pretty sure that was part of the point. Cummings wasn't doing a "bad impression" - he was doing an excellent impression of Hondo not even trying to do a convincing impression of them.

Wonderful. And thank you.

Disney Park planet story

If you are planning to visit the Disney park Star Wars land, this may be a fun backstory for the planet Batuu. If you are a fan of Hondo, you will enjoy this. Jim Cummings, the same actor who performs Hondo’s voice on The Clone Wars and Rebels respectively, reads this book and does a good job. Good sound effects and music as always with Star Wars audiobooks.

If I could give all 3 categories 6 stars I would

The narrator was INCREDIBLE. The story was charming, fun and hilarious.

I love how Hondo currently is the last owner of the Millennium Falcon and how it ties to Black Spire!

Brilliant performance makes story inconsequential

The story isn't amazing but Hondo is just so endearing. Definitely for TCW fans. It's divided into three quite separate stories, the last two of which are quite short. I would have preferred just one larger narrative. The first and longest story is absolutely the best, has a good mystery/heist flair. Anyways, I really loved how it referenced and appealed to all eras. Prequel era obviously with Hondo, but eventually it reaches the sequel era and appeals to those fans. It ties in explicitly with the Disneyland Star Wars area. I really recommend the print version to be read alongside the audio because Jim doesn't differentiate Hondo's voice from the other characters' voices very well so without reading along, it's sometimes confusing to tell if Hondo is talking dialogue, narration, or someone else entirely, because the book is also first person, so 90% of the narration is in Hondo's voice even if it isn't in quote marks. This is why the text is helpful, to see quote marks stopping and starting. And really, I'd have it no other way. It's a brilliant production. We only got maybe a dozen episodes that had Hondo in them over the years, amounting to maybe 15 total minutes of voice lines? To get 5 hours straight is a dream come true to anyone who grew up with The Clone Wars or even Rebels, and is also great for sequel trilogy fans, and it is a great idea to read/listen to it if you plan on attending the Disneyland attraction, for background story.

Chewbacca…

Ok story, mostly about Onaka, not much with Han and Chewie. When Chewie was in the story, the voice actor’s impression of a Wookiee sound was sooooo cringy. Made it difficult to enjoy.

True to Character

Although written for a younger audience and somewhat silly at times the style perfectly captures the Hondo Onaka character. The narration by Jim Cummings is top three favorite audiobook readings and does a surprising faithful Han Solo Impression. I purchased this because of the connection to Batuu which is only a small portion of the narrative but the narration had me hooked from start to finish.

Delightful for fans of all ages

Obviously Jim Cummings did an amazing job at bringing Hondo to life as a narrator, but he also knocked the Han Solo voice outta the park. Hearing Hondo do sound effects and wookie dialogue made me giggle with glee every time.
