Watch the Original Star Wars Trailer from 1977 #SciFiSunday

With all the recent Star Wars excitement, it’s fun to look back in time to the trailer that started it all.

Admittedly, the line “The story of a boy, a girl, and a universe” had me chuckling.

Video from SKYTV on YouTube, via boingboing.

Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher
Written and Directed by George Lucas
May 25, 1977

  1. This must be a pretty early trailer! “Somewhere in space, this may all be happening right now” A far cry from “A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.” The effects look incomplete. They don’t even use the final logo! It’s interesting to see how it evolved.
