Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (1977)
Part IV in George Lucas’ epic, Star Wars: A New Hope opens with a Rebel ship being boarded by the tyrannical Darth Vader. The plot then follows the life of a simple farm boy, Luke Skywalker, as he and his newly met allies (Han Solo, Chewbacca, Obi-Wan Kenobi, C-3PO, R2-D2) attempt to rescue a Rebel leader, Princess Leia, from the clutches of the Empire. The conclusion is culminated as the Rebels, including Skywalker and flying ace Wedge Antilles make an attack on the Empire’s most powerful and ominous weapon, the Death Star.
If you like and use our caps, please consider leaving a comment below - we'd love to see what you made with them! :)
These screencaps are terrific. Appreciate the effort. Just spent hours browsing this, Empire, and Return, would love to use a few of these for a “moments” post today. May the 4th be with you all.
i love these screencaps! the quality is very high so i use them for my edits on instagram [@skywalkeirs] thanks a lot!
Howcome there’s a bit of screentime missing in the Death Star battle…Red 4 (John D. Branon – Red helmet guy) turns both left and right…there’s only a screencap of him turning left.
Caps are made automatically 2 per second, perhaps it was a very quick shot? Or perhaps I capped a slightly different version movie than the one you’re watching? 🙂
I found a few more instance. Yes, that makes sense…must always be that second inbetween that gets lost!

I am using your caps for my own youtube project which should be done in a few days.
I will post a link there-after. Thanks for the caps. I was actually going to do my own
caps but my VCL capture device is not operating, so i thought i would do a SW caps
search where i thank-fully found you.
My only gripe is that the caps are randomly timed every 2 to 3 seconds in my estimation
(IME) which prevents it from capturing key special effects laser lights fire exploding.
IE: the stardestroyer exchanging laser with the Tantive IV. Now that’s a laser show.
Thank you so much for creating this site! I am using your caps as I create scenes for my son’s Star Wars Mini-Golf party. At each of the 18 holes the kids will see a different scene and they have to complete all 18 as they play towards destroying the Death Star. At the end they will get to destroy the Death Star (a pinata!) if they complete each hole. Your site made my job SO much easier, thank you!
I really enjoy your screencaps!
I use them for Star Wars edits on Instagram 🙂

Thank you so much for making these screencaps available. I’m doing a lot of pseudoscientific Star Wars research and more often than once a screencap says more than a thousand words. I had been looking for SW screencaps for a long time and finding this website was like hitting a jackpot!
Back in the 1980’s we paid 10 $ a piece for screenshots made on 8 x 10 photopaper from original single film roll images. So the worth and wealth of these screencaps here is almost immeasurable, especially since we get such a large selection to pick from.
I can now illustrate my research articles with the perfect image matches. The Force shall be with you – always!
I use the screencaps for my Star Wars humor page fb.com/starwarspudu Thank you guys!
Thanks so much for these amazing screencaps, I’m gonna use them to make graphics and post them to my tumblr 🙂

The date is wrong, surely. This is from the latest Special Edition (2014) not the original film (1977).
It might be worth noting in your prefaces that you’re using the visually altered versions of the original trilogy. Versions released twenty years after the dates you show. In some cases the alterations to the originals are significant. Some people coming here (such as myself) may be looking for historically accurate examples.
They cite the year 1977 simply because it´s the year in which it was first released. The 2011 blu-ray cuts are now official versions of the films, just like the guy that made those film wanted it.
George Lucas directed the 1977 version of this film but he didn’t direct the next two and they are only how he wanted them in 2011. It’s inaccurate to label these as 1977. As a image archive it’s not a representation of a film released in that year.
I needed to get some reference pictures of container boxes found in the hangers of Mos Eisley & the Death Star hangar for making some 1/6 scale accessories & found this site invaluable for this, thanks VERY much, bookmarked! 🙂
I’m using them to answer some questions somebody posed about the Millennium Falcon on a message board i frequent. Thanks for the reference!
This is going to be EXTREMELY helpful with weathering my armor like the Sandtroopers! Thanks for doing this.

So it is a big part for my Star Wars know-what quest now.
Thank you for doing this,it’s a Huge help 🙂
I am Using your screen caps in a visual essay I have for a class called Landscape Geography through Photography and Art. I am analyzing George Lucas’ use of Landscape in the original trilogy. I am using 12 images of various landscapes from the films, each accompanied with a description detailing their cinematographic composition, traditional use of landscape, symbology and influences (Traditional Mythology, Philosophy, The Works of other Artists such as Akira Kurosawa, Etc..) I am very appreciative of this site for having these available. Thanks so much.
