Hi everybody,
Star Wars is a very popular movie, attracting a lot of viewers. Those things make the film a success. As far as I know, the movie was adapted from a book of the same name. Do not know if that is true? Looking forward to receiving your answer
Thanks everyone.

Alan Dean Foster ghostwrote the novel from Lucas' screenplay, and it was published in November 1976 prior to the release of the film.

From a certain point of view, the book was first.

The novelisation for Raiders of the Lost Ark also released a few months before the film. I bought and read the book before the film came out, and still have that book.

The front cover proclaims, "Adapted from the screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan. Based on a story by George Lucas and Philip Kaufman".

The back cover says, "SOON TO BE A MAJOR PARAMOUNT PICTURE..."


The artwork bears little relation to the film. For example, Indy has a shoulder holster and ammo belt, the Germans are in the desert in grey SS uniforms, and they have a tank!

You know, that Obi-Wan was just a big liar! :)

Jesus Christ, why do so many people respond to spam on this forum?!?!?!

Just ignore it.

No wonder the Nigerian prince scam is still a thing.
