Why Brian De Palma Has No Regrets About His Now-Infamous Criticism Of Star Wars’ Opening

Having said that, Brian De Palma does admit that for the most part, he saw Star Wars for the remarkable achievement that it was. However, that doesn’t mean he thought the movie was perfect. There were two particular places where De Palma says Star Wars had a problem. One was the opening text crawl. With this being the audiences first ever introduction to the galaxy far, far, away, De Palma says Lucas’ version was far too confusing, which led to De Palma himself and screenwriter Jay Cocks taking a pass on it and rewriting it into something a little easier to follow.
