Most likely you were excited to see that space background with the Star Wars title finally showing up in big, futuristic lettering. That had been a defining moment in many a fan’s start in witnessing the exploits of Luke Skywalker in his struggle against the oppressive Galactic Empire.
It all began with a space-opera film shown in 1977 that was originally a one-off deal. Until it opened several possibilities that led to the creation of prequels and sequels. Then it became more than just a show.
Star Wars expanded its borders through its lore that attracted several other forms. Television series, video games, comic books, novels and, alternate storylines led to the creation of a vast, all-encompassing fictional universe. Stories made to this day were a testament to the limitless potential of the galaxy far, far away. The many forms Star Wars has taken were recognized as one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time.
The original lettering was 100 percent handwritten and was called ITC Serif. But you don’t need to go through all that today. If you need a sci-fi font similar to Star Wars, there’s Star Jedi by Boba Fonts, as well as other variations such as War Machine, Redfive, and Anakinmono, which you can download from on Template Monster.
