As I was trying to research the topic of Star Wars trailers, I was rather shocked by the lack of resources on the topic. I eventually had to resort to using ImperialFighter’s list (http://originaltrilogy.com/forum/topic.cfm/Imps-MOVIE-TRAILER-SHOWCASE-Past-Present-and-Coming-Soon/topic/11782/) and a little bit of this: http://www.swonvideo.com/vcd/imageslarge/vvcdstarwarstrailersback.jpg although I am not sure how accurate or helpful that second one actually was. Sorry if the formatting is messed up, it was an absolute pain to try and wrestle with this posting editor. So:


     1) Does some wonderful database of all Star Wars trailers exist and I have just not found it, or is this about as good as it gets?

    2) Is the below information accurate?

    3) Could you guys help me fill it out, particularly what the best current sources of each are (and hopefully official names for each)? I anticipate that the EditDroid 4 Disc Set and the 2004 Bonus Disc are the best sources for most, but unfortunately both of my copies are across the ocean so I cannot check myself.

 

After each trailer below, the words in soft parenthesis are the first words spoken in the trailer, so they can be easily identified. If I un-lazy myself, I may start trying to fill this list out with Youtube links as well.

*Are there two versions of this trailer? I know the original has blue lasers. I am interested in knowing what the version floating around on Youtube, with red lasers and a weird font at the end is. Is it a recreation?
