It’s a well-known fact among Star Wars fans that the opening crawl of the original 1977 film was actually co-written by George Lucas and famed director Brian De Palma, but have you ever found yourself wondering what the text said before the Scarface filmmaker got a crack at it? Thanks to the magic of the internet, the answer to that rather random question has been uncovered.
A user on the image gathering website Imgur has posted a collection of rare behind-the-scenes photos and script images from the original Star Wars, and scans of the screenplay owned by Continuity Supervisor Ann Skinner have revealed what the original crawl was going to say while the film was still in development. You can see the first page in its entirety over at the source, but you can read the early draft of the crawl below:

The exhibition, at the British Film Institute’s Southbank Atrium, features never before seen Polaroid photographs of some of the main actors during filming for Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
The material was donated to the BFI by the film’s continuity supervisor, Ann Skinner in a stash of treasures that includes deleted scenes, extensive shooting notes and pages from the original film.
Some of the biggest stars are shown relaxing between takes, including Marc Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Peter Cushing.
Selected items from the archive are going on show until January 4, 2015, as part of BFI’s sci-fi season, Days of Fear and Wonder.

While Star Wars Rebels has been on the air a few months now, it’s largely taken its inspirations from other works from the Lucasfilm pantheon like Indiana Jones and Star Wars itself, but the episode “Out of Darkness” gave us a brilliant homage to the 2000 science fiction film Pitch Black, directed by David Twohy.
Pitch Black tells the story of the passengers and crew of a commercial transport marooned on a mysteriously abandoned planet. The film highlights each of the people on the ship as they try to keep their secrets and survive on a planet where nocturnal creatures reign supreme. To make matters worse, they discover that their time is running out before the planet is consumed by a month-long eclipse.
“Out of Darkness” sees Hera and Sabine marooned on a base, long abandoned by Republic forces. They were there to pick up supplies provided to them by the mysterious “Fulcrum,” but their ship is in a state of disrepair, thanks to mistakes made by Zeb and Ezra. As passing asteroids cause miniature eclipses, they discover that the base was most likely abandoned due to the vicious creatures called fyrnocks. These beasts come out in the dark and are hungry for the crew of the Ghost.
