It’s Been Exactly 40 Years Since the First “Star Wars” Movie Premiered

It seems so long ago now, but many of you still remember May 25, 1977. It was the day when one big story started, and the fans are now celebrating its 40th birthday.

On that date, George Lucas’ future hit “Star Wars” opened. Initially, 20th Century Fox didn’t believe the movie will be a big success at all, but 40 years later we’ve seen numerous sequels and prequels and it seems that the franchise is not losing any of its popularity.
