I know this has been posted before, but what is the font for "A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...."

Also, what is the color?

If you want it exactly like the OOT then you won't have any luck without just tracing a screenshot. Digitised fonts weren't used for the crawl and titles back then, so no fonts we have now are exactly the same. Being film no one could give you an exact colour value either.

News Gothic or Trade Gothic would have been used originally, both are close enough. The new crawls use Franklin Gothic (and a different blue).

Everything is better on a laserdisc. Whatever happened to the laserdisc? Laserdisc!
