|One of the early US adverts for Star Wars cinema release- art by Tom Jung. Note the original logo with the 'W'.|
It was an undiminished joy watching multiple times the original Star Wars in the cinemas on its barnstorming release from 1977/78, and it continues to be an undiminished joy for millions and generations to watch and adore either via VHS, laserdisc, DVD, Blu-ray and digital formats, even with the many controversial changes/additions made to it. It's timeless, it's iconic, it's magical, it's unforgettable, remaining unbeaten as the legacy launch point to so, so much in our modern world of entertainment.
HAPPY FORTY-FIRST BIRTHDAY! to the original STAR WARS!
