Heir to the Empire annotation #4: A larger galaxy

StarWarsBooks brings us our fourth Timothy Zahn annotation from the 20th anniversary edition of Heir to the Empire:

One of the subtle tricks George used in the Star Wars movies was to show us only a few different planets, but to then use throwaway mentions of others along the way, thus giving us a feel for a much larger galaxy than we were actually seeing. I wanted to continue that technique by throwing in short visits to lots of different worlds such as Bimmisaari.

The new edition will be out in hardcover June 21.

  1. Still a little obvious, but unlike the other annotations we’ve been given, I hadn’t actually heard this one before. Neat stuff.
