Star Wars anniversary: Legendary science fiction film released 35 years ago today

Thirty-five years ago today, anxious movie-goers saw those famous words for the first time on the silver screen:

The original film was released on May 25th, 19-77.

Since then, "Star Wars" has spawned two sequels and three prequels, as well as hundreds of spin-off novels, comic books, T-V shows and video games.

To mark the occasion, the films' official website has added the theatrical trailer to the first movie on its home page.
