This poster was printed in two sheets and designed to be pasted onto billboards, and far fewer than the standard size poster were printed. Only unused examples survived.

It is very rare to find these large billboard posters, as they were not only printed in two sheets but also in smaller quantities. They were displayed by being pasted onto billboards, and therefore only unused posters survived. Seeing the main characters on this size poster has a huge visual impact.

This was where it all begun back in 1977, when George Lucas brought us the beginning of the Star Wars empire.
