    I remember the trailer but not the pre-John Williams crappy soundtrack and voiceover.

    I *do* remember watching it (as a kid) in a theater that summer and the opening orchestral crescendo taking my breath away.

    I was 15 when Star Wars came out. I remember at that time EVERY, damn, last, one of the science fiction movies released in years previous had been VERY super-serious social commentary (2001, Planet of the Apes, Clockwork Orange, Soylent Green and so forth)

    So it`s not surprising the promoters did not use the right kind of feel for the trailer. The idea of the feel-good "popcorn" flick had been away for a while, but Star Wars helped bring it back.

    All of you "I could do better" Idiots, Let us see what you can do with Film and Miniture animation! PLEASE! What a bunch of tools!!

    I watched SW four times that summer at the theatre. It is still the only movie I have ever "paid" to see that many times.

    Greatest film of its time.

    I`m sure at the time period Star Wars was released that trailer was at the top of it`s game. Seriously, who could`ve turned down a space adventure with such great special effects as well as cool looking villains? Not me, but then again I wasn`t born in that time period :D

    Man, I forgot about that. When I was a kid that totally hooked me. It was all I could think about (still too young for girls.) But I have to agree with an earlier comment, I don`t remember the voice over or that crap soundtrack. Strange.

    What so many people here (mostly the 13-17 yr-olds) are forgetting to do is compare this trailer to the other movie trailers OF THE 70`S. If you compare it to trailers of today, no doubt it`s rather unimpressive (unless, of course, you`re a sci-fi fan to begin with). I enjoyed it, simply because I sometimes wondered what it would look like. And now I know. :-)

    this was fox, forcing the issue of release, i believe this was the second trailer, no music created just yet & James Earl Jones (uncredited) was not known as the voice of vader until the film was 1st shown, the follow on trailers were much more theatrical, Lucas had a helluva time releasing this movie on fox` shedule & in the 70`s buck rogers still held the gauntlet, so while dull this commercial showed some pretty promising effects

    keep in mind main frame servers ran a 7Mhz or less & the internet was still owned by darpa/arpa in pre production of the film, so "most" of what you see is good old ingenuity

    if your interested the trilogy dvd empire of dreams is worthy

    even though I wasn`t alive at the time, I can transpose what I seen to the day and time it was created for, and not compare it to today`s trailers.

    All of you who say this was crap, I would give 50$ to to make a better trailer.. only using 1970`s technology, nothing, I mean NOTHING at all from today`s world.

    George Lucas made a masterpiece from popsical sticks and super glue, I doubt any of you could do better, hell I KNOW none of you can do better.

    thank you so much for showing us that! i`m guessing the music wasn`t recorded yet, which is a shame, as i probably wouldn`t have seen it with the lame voiceover and strange sound effects. little did they know what effect it would have on society...
