Revenge of the Jedi (1982) Poster, US, Second advance

Artist: Drew Struzan (b. 1947)


Unframed: 41 x 27 in. (104 x 69 cm)


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 These posters were withdrawn from circulation, and any remaining ones have become highly collectible by Star Wars fans.

This was the final film made in the original Star Wars trilogy, which is now the sixth film, owing to the subsequent prequel trilogy.
