According to GL he always originally intended for the episode title to be added to the SW opening crawl back in '77 but the studio wouldn’t let him.

I think he did, but considering that TESB was originally going to be Episode II, Star Wars would have been Episode I. So the Episode IV didn’t happen until sometime during the production of TESB when that one became Episode V.
