Disney And Lucasfilm Re-Release Original STAR WARS Teaser Trailer
"The story of a boy, a girl and a universe. It’s a big, sprawling space saga of rebellion and romance." No, that's not the tagline for J.J. Abrams' Star Wars Episode VII; it's for the original Star Wars from 1977! Lucasfilm have re-released the trailer, and you can check it out here.
Nineteen years after the formation of the Empire, Luke Skywalker is thrust into the struggle of the Rebel Alliance when he meets Obi-Wan Kenobi, who has lived for years in seclusion on the desert planet of Tatooine. Obi-Wan begins Luke's Jedi training as Luke joins him on a daring mission to rescue the beautiful Rebel leader Princess Leia from the clutches of the evil Empire. Although Obi-Wan sacrifices himself in a lightsaber duel with Darth Vader, his former apprentice, Luke proves that the Force is with him by destroying the Empire's dreaded Death Star.
Chances are you may have already seen that teaser either on one of the many Star Wars home video re-releases or one of the poorly recorded versions on YouTube. If you haven't though, it's well worth checking out how the movie which would later be dubbed Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope was originally advertised. Why Lucasfilm (who are obviously owned by Disney) have chosen to re-release it now is anyone's guess, but one can only hope that it may be leading to some sort of teaser reveal for Star Wars Episode VII! Watching this may also make you wish that the original trilogy had indeed been brought back to the big screen, even if it had been in converted 3D.
