    Actually, George Lucas planned the logo changes from the very beginning, including the new logo that Disney creates for the upcoming movie releases.

    So cool! While the early logos are nice, I have a lot of love for the final/current logo.

    Interesting how all of the alternate designs feel dated (not in a bad way, I think they’re pretty great), but the final logo as used feels relatively timeless (though one of the examples is a 90′s VHS cover which uses the same logo but somehow 90′s-ized). On purpose, obviously. It’s very well designed.

    Fascinating. Another thing. I remember that in the children’s section of the library I frequented the year Star Wars came out (I turned 4 in the summer of 1977, so this is digging into my earliest memories) they had a bunch of the concept art from SW up on the walls and end-caps of the shelves. And I distinctly remember scenes — probably of the Death Star interior — where the Storm Troopers were all walking around with light sabers. 

    Goes to show how far afield the concepts were, before they gelled into what we all know them as now.
