Trailer for “The Star Wars”: Lucas’s Original VisionAugust 13th, 2013
Before George Lucas brought Star Wars to theaters in the first film, Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (of course, it was merely “Star Wars” then), he made some major changes to his script. The original story was called The Star Wars and included some significant differences. For example, Han Solo was an alien, the lead for the film was a character known as Annikin Starkiller and Luke Skywalker, instead of being a somewhat innocent farm boy, was an experienced general.
On September 4, the original script is hitting shelves as a Dark Horse comic book, The Star Wars, an eight-issue series adapted by writer J.W. Rinzler and artist Mike Mayhew. Dark Horse Comics created this video trailer to introduce the comic series.
