Actually it was first “spoken” in the Star Wars radio drama in 1981, but fans also new it from the novelization, comics, trading cards, storybook, the 1978 “Art of Star Wars” book (which also had the script and used the title “A New Hope”) and various promotional materials like the souvenir program etc. It wasn’t clear what it actually meant, however, until 1999, but the word was known.
Disney released unreleased film footage where the word Sith was said in the meeting room with all the high ranking imperials were talking, right before Vader said that the space station was nothing compared to the force. Whoever wrote this article needs to do their research!
