The galaxy is in the midst of a civil war. Rebel spies have stolen plans to the Galactic Empire's Death Star, a colossal space station capable of destroying an entire planet. Princess Leia, one of the Rebellion's leaders, has obtained the plans, but her starship is captured by an Imperial Star Destroyer under the command of the ruthless Darth Vader. Luke Skywalker is thrust into the struggle of the Rebel Alliance when he meets Obi-Wan Kenobi, who has lived for years in seclusion on the desert planet of Tatooine. Obi-Wan begins Luke's Jedi training as Luke joins him on a daring mission to rescue the beautiful Princess Leia from the clutches of the evil Empire.

A cloud appears over one of Tatooine's suns too quickly.
George Lucas was positive that the movie would flop. So much so that instead of attending the premiere, he went on vacation to Hawaii with Steven Spielberg, where they came up with the idea for Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981).

On the first day of filming in the deserts of Tunisia, the country had experienced its first major rainstorm in 50 years.

This was the first movie to make over $300 million.

The comical moment when Chewbacca frightens a skittish mouse droid was unscripted and thought up on set.
