Canada: Original Star Wars Script Discovered in University of New Brunswick Library

From the CBC:

Deep in the archives of the University of New Brunswick’s library in Saint John, a famous movie script sat forgotten and collecting dust. It tells the tales of a galaxy far, far away — and no one knows how it got there.

Since February, Kristian Brown, a librarian, has been sifting through the library’s extensive science fiction collection.

With a big interest in the sci-fi genre, Brown was tasked to digitize the university’s collection of zines, pulp magazines and novels.

Just as Brown was coming to the end of his contract, he came across what appears to be an original shooting script for Star Wars.
