Recently released is the original teaser trailer for the movie that was to put out-there science fiction into the mainstream spotlight and spawn one of the largest franchises in the world.
1976 saw the following Star Wars IV: A New Hope teaser released, and it’s… underwhelming? To be fair, it was probably the coolest thing ever seen in 1976, but I have to admit it doesn’t exactly hold its place with today’s modern trailers – but that’s an argument for another day.
What’s particularly interesting is the inclusion of the infamous Star Wars font and logo… is missing. It hasn’t been implemented yet. But I suppose Arial will do in a pinch!
