Have you checked the Star Wars website yet?
i edited soem thingsnot to break some copyright or soemthing.
It's not at all uncommon for book publishers to release a book, or publish a new version of an existing book that is being remade as a film, with that "Soon to be a major motion picture" line -- and since the time to produce a film is much longer than that needed to publish a paperback, they do get out sooner.
Any hard evidence would be useful.
I don't know whether it qualifies as "hard evidence," but try a search for "star wars history" and you'll probably find plenty of accounts.
Otherwise, you may have to settle for renting the movie "The Making of Star Wars". I'm sure the movie tells when things got started. I want to say 1974 or '75, since Lucas released American Graffitti around '73/'74.
Looks like the book was based on the screenplay. It came out before the movie, but the movie was written prior to the book. Talk about confusing!
I thought someone would have answered it straight off! Seems it wasn't so straight forward.
Sometimes, you've just got to ask the experts.! Glad they could help you at the Star Wars forum.
Sheesh. Correct answer stated speculatively in post number 2. Correct answer stated directly in post number 8, and again in post number 9.
People don't believe the answers unless they're from someone who posts on a star wars site?
People should have more faith in webmasterworld -- there aren't many questions for which expert answers won't be found here... no need to go traipsing around in the backwoods of the web. :)
I think the problem was that Joshie76 needed some "physical" proof to win an argument. The Star Wars Official Site would be definitive proof.
I'm betting whoever he was having the argument with doesn't believe we're all experts on everything here. ;)
