In honor of today’s Star Wars casting news… check out these casting announcements for the original film back in 1976!

Some highlights: 

• Some reports had Luke’s last name as Starkiller (as he was originally referred to in the George Lucas script)

• Alec Guinness’s part was dubbed the “top role.”

• A description of Darth Vader as a “huge masked villain.”

• And a great full-page ad from Steven Spielberg to George Lucas congratulating him on Star Wars beating Jaws’ box office record.

(all of these are part of our Academy Collection)
