'STAR WARS' AT 40: "AMONG THE BILLION STARS..."


A closer look at the original STAR WARS opening title crawl conceived in late 1975/76 by George Lucas, whose words were later replaced and/or altered by early 1977 to a shorter and more manageable 'story so far' idea for audiences to grab a hold of, based on that concept so effectively used in the old B/W Flash Gordon serials starring Buster Crabbe.

Though unused on film, this crawl would appear in the 1976 film-still-in-production phase of the MARVEL comics and book adaptations that started appearing in shops by the end of that year.
