It's crazy to think that 40 years ago today, George Lucas released "Star Wars" to audiences not expecting much at all. There were no solidified plans for sequels, no ideas for Theme Park lands, no talk of spin offs or expanded universes. There was only Lucas' space adventure and the hope that the film wouldn't tank, especially after its troubled production.
Now, 40 years later, Star Wars is a billion dollar franchise with legions of fans (like us 😝) and stories on various platforms that continue to expand the Universe.
Today, we want to celebrate the movie that started it all with a gallery of Behind the Scenes images from the 1977 production, featuring the amazing cast and crew that made it all happen!
