This teaser trailer for Star Wars from 1976 has surfaced on YouTube, showing you just how George Lucas had to sell the film to his audience before it became a cultural phenomenon. The results are weird, or as the trailer describes "a spectacle light-years ahead of its time."

Uploaded by the official Star Wars YouTube account, the trailer shows short cuts from every iconic scene in the movie, and tells "the story of a boy, a girl, and a universe." Granted, this relationship does get a little awkward later on in the trilogy, but this wasn't set in stone by this point. 

We look forward to seeing if this classic style influences the upcoming Disney take on the galaxy far, far away.
