At the Archives Star Wars Is

Tomorrow, on December 18, a little movie you may have heard about called, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, comes out. In the spirit of the occasion, we thought we'd take a look at what Star Wars related materials we have here at the Archives.

First we have a page from the exhibition concept for "Star Wars: The Magic of Myth" which was on view at the National Air and Space Museum from 1997-1998.
