This is great! I’ve always felt that Star Wars was more fantasy then science fiction. I was not aware that the early draft leaned more toward hard sci-fi and, though I have long been aware of Campbell’s influence on Lucas, I had no idea that his ideas were so pivotal in moving the concept in a more surrealist direction.
