    "Being the Star Wars nerd that I am, I've been to a lot of Star Wars sites. None of them can match Wookieepedia in size and scope. Made by SW fans for SW fans you can find even the most obscure trivia from all SW movies. And like Wikipedia, you can add entries as well."

It will also gives some great information that can help you connect more to Anakin Skywalker, which may be a little bit lacking in the actual Star Wars prequel films. Overall, this set is a must buy if you want to expand your knowledge of the series! "

It might help you learn a little more about different characters and vehicles from the movies, but it won't exactly make you a Star Wars expert overnight. Overall, pretty fun, but I would look elsewhere to truly increase your Jedi knowledge."
