History of Star Wars: Premiered 45 Years Ago
The original Star Wars movie premiered on May 25, 1977.
Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away…
in Berkeley, in November 1976, I picked up a new science fiction novel called “Star Wars: From the Adventures of Luke Skywalker” by George Lucas. I did not know at the time that it was ghost-written by Alan Dean Foster, a popular sci-fi writer.
