'The Star Wars' Trailer: A Comic Book Of George Lucas' Original Vision

Before George Lucas made some big chances to the career-defining script that became Star Wars, the story was called The Star Wars. Many of the bigger ideas and character names that would appear in the 1977 classic were in place early on. But there are huge differences between the early draft and what audiences eventually saw on the screen. Han Solo was an alien rather than a human, Annikin Starkiller was the lead, and Luke Skywalker was an experienced general and precursor of sorts to Obi-Wan Kenobi.

On September 4, the original script is hitting shelves as a Dark Horse comic book. They publisher has just released a trailer for the adaptation. Check it out below.

Thanks to USA Today (via THR) for the trailer.
