It seems like every day brings another headline about "Star Wars: Episode VII." We're inundated with rumor after rumor and tidbit after tidbit about J.J. Abrams' first entry in the new trilogy, which makes it all the more necessary to be reminded of our intergalactic origins. Thanks to the official "Star Wars" YouTube account, we don't have to go very far to do so. The very first trailer ever released for the series has resurfaced, and it's as shrouded in '70s sci-fi awesomeness as you'd imagine.
The trailer's flat British narration declares it "the story of a boy, a girl and a universe." The series' classic yellow logo clearly hadn't been fashioned yet, as the title of the movie appears in a nondescript off-white font. The two-minute trailer features only brief, silent glimpses of Darth Vader and no use of John Williams' iconic score -- but it does boast "aliens from a thousand worlds."
Relive this 1977 gem, which replaces "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away" with, "Somewhere in space, this may all be happening right now."
