The Star Wars Storybook (pub. 1978)
Amazon; Goodreads; Wookieepedia

I've had this as long as I can remember, but I'm not sure where I got it. I think it actually belonged to my dad, originally, and I probably just sort of... appropriated it. I don't remember if I read this before or after the first time I saw Star Wars, but I do know it's fairly nostalgic to me. It has a bunch of film stills from the movie, as well as telling the whole story of the movie. But it has one page that talks about a scene that isn't actually in the movie, where Luke is talking to his old friend Biggs. Years later, after getting on the internet, I learned that there were other scenes that had been cut from the movie, which aren't even mentioned in this book. And I've always wanted to see all of those scenes. In 1997, when the movie was rereleased to theaters in Special Edition format, there was a scene with Biggs and Luke later in the movie, which is mentioned briefly in this book, though I didn't remember that. But the earlier scene still isn't in the movie. In 2006 there were limited edition releases of the first three movies, which included the special editions and original theatrical versions. I really wanted to get those, but at the time I couldn't afford them (even though they weren't expensive at all), and of course now they'd be several times more expensive, which is annoying as hell. Maybe someday I'll get them, but I think they may still not include this scene (which I have no idea if it was in the movie when it was first in theaters in 1977, or not). There are also Storybooks for "Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi," but I've never seen those books. I'd totally like to, and they shouldn't be hard (or expensive) to get.

Anyway... Here are a few pics I scanned:
