On the ‘Star Wars’ Opening Crawl

Moisés Chiullan:

There is something wrong with the opening crawl for The Force Awakens. Fan and typography enthusiast John Gruber and original Star Wars opening title sequence designer Dan Perri help unravel the mystery of where (and when) things went wrong.

I had a ton of fun doing this podcast. As both a Star Wars and typography obsessive, I’m blown away that I never before noticed how inconsistent the opening crawls are across the films. (Overcast users: I suggest turning off Smart Speed and Voice Boost for this one.)
