40th Anniversary of ‘Star Wars’


The original Star Wars film made its debut 40 years ago today on May 25, 1977. I still vividly remember my Mom and Dad taking our family to the Center Theatre in downtown Salt Lake City that summer to see Star Wars and how wowed we all were by it. I am extremely grateful for my dear parents for this and so many other happy memories.

Here’s one of my all-time favorite Star Wars posters–the “Style A” poster designed and painted by the great American artist Tom Jung.

And as an added bonus, here’s a 40th birthday post from the official Star Wars Instagram feed:

And many more. 🎈🎉 #StarWars #StarWars40th #ANewHope
