Did you have 29 January marked in your calendars, Star Wars-fans? I certainly hope so, because it's an important day. Today is the day that Jedi-godfather and modification-enthusiast George Lucas finished the second draft of a little script called Adventures of the Starkiller, Episode I: The Star Wars — a film that would alter become Episode IV: A New Hope.
Lucas put the finishing touches on his Starkiller script on this day, 38 years ago.
The script bore a striking resemblance to what would later become A New Hope, only with a few details different here and there.
If you read the synopsis of the Starkiller script, you might actually enjoy the added level of detail.
Lucas changed the script in may of 1975 so it became A New Hope. [Twitter]
