Retracing Trailers : Part 1 : The Original Trilogy

June 14, 2021

Jez guides the team through a look-back at the cinema trailers of the Original Trilogy, in the first of a three-part series exploring how the promotion of the Star Wars saga has changed through the years. 

From the cheese fests of the 70s, through to the current trailers on Disney+ – we start our journey with a palette-cleansing sample of big movie trailers from 1977, before moving on to the very first Star Wars teaser.

Join us as we discuss how the art of the trailer has grown from editing a few clips together with some stand-in music and a voiceover, to the kind of thing that has halls full of people crying real tears at Star Wars Celebration.
