REVENGE OF THE JEDI, SECOND ADVANCE (DATED) POSTER, DREW STRUZAN, US, 1982
George Lucas originally named the film Revenge of the Jedi. Advance posters were created to advertise the film's forthcoming release. However, before the film was actually released, Lucas changed the title to Return of the Jedi, as he felt that the word 'revenge' was not an aspiration of a Jedi Knight. These posters were withdrawn from circulation, and any remaining ones have become highly collectable by Star Wars fans.
One of the most sought-after posters owing to its title, which was changed to Return of the Jedi.
41 x 27 in. (104 x 69 cm)
