“An all-star celebration of music and comedy when the Muppets throw a party and swing with the stars at the legendary Cocoanut Grove !”
In a Galaxy Far Far Away Jim Henson’s Muppets recreate “Star Wars” (La Guerre Des Muppets) in their 1980 movie “The Muppets Go Hollywood”. It only goes to illustrate that even after only a short number of years from release the cultural influence of George Lucas’ space opera was having a huge effect. France was the only country to release a series of parody type posters (six in total) of which this “Star Wars” version re-imagines Tom Jung’s original one-sheet artwork replacing Luke for Kermit, Princess Leia for Miss Piggy and Darth Vader as Gonzo. Unique to France these posters are highly desirable and sought after by Muppet and Star Wars fans alike. Folded (as issued) this lovely unrestored original condition poster presents to very good effect with minimal handling wear. A scarce and unusual piece of original Star Wars and Muppet movie memorabilia very much of the time and highlighting the influence for one of the most collectable and popular modern movie franchises.
