The content of this Star Wars Legends article was cut.

This article covers a subject that was cut from the final version of a Star Wars Legends source. The subject appeared in no other source and was therefore considered non-canon within the Legends continuity.

Star Wars was a planned comic-strip adaptation of the film of the same name (later titled Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope). It would have been written by Al Williamson, who had been George Lucas's first choice for writing a comic-strip adaptation for the film due to reading his Flash Gordon strips. Although he managed to write up to the portion where the Lars family got R2-D2 and C-3PO within two weeks, he ultimately stopped working on it. The actual comic strip was written by Russ Manning. Williamson eventually did adaptations of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
