Anyone know what this Star Wars crawl title font is?

So, I was rewatching the star wars movies and I noticed TFA has a different font for the subtitle of the movie.

Notice how Return of the Jedi looks a bit bolder. I already have the force awakens font (obviously, it’s pretty generic) but I was wondering if anyone knows the name of the font the rest of the films use.

Thanks!

I can’t quite remember for certain - though think for the first six Star Wars films it is a variant of ‘Franklin Gothic Medium Condensed’ (probably in ‘Bold’?). It is also sometimes known as the ‘Univers’ font?

For the Sequel Trilogy… I think it was changed to ‘News Gothic’.

I believe TFA uses the same font as TESB.

And in the time of greatest despair, there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as the Son of the Suns.

The title of TFA, ANH, TESB and TROS is in News Gothic Bold Extra Condensed. The body of the crawl is in News Gothic Bold for all the movies. The title of the Prequels and ROTJ is Univers Ultra Condensed. I believe TLJ uses Univers Ultra Condensed as well, but I don’t know for sure.
