“May The Force Be with You”

A 1977 original year of release “Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope” Style C UK Quad featuring Chantrell’s much loved artwork. This is the “Awards Version” produced after the movie had won 7 Oscars. When George Lucas & the Studio Executives realised just how successful this movie was likely to become their marketing strategy had to be re-assessed. The original Jung & Hildebrand posters although iconic & artistic where not really that commercial in terms of characterisation. Tom Chantrell was drafted & in & produced this new look, all-action, bolder, brighter looking poster. Luke, Leia & Han Solo all bear an incredible likeness to their screen counterparts & the Star Wars merchandising phenomena was born. Easily the most recognisable of all the Star Wars posters it is this design that has become synonymous with the franchise and is extremely sought after with many collectors & fans. This high grade condition Style C poster is a pleasure to offer for sale. Folded (as issued) this beautiful unrestored original condition example presents to excellent effect with just a single small pinhole to each corner. An iconic film poster that represents a scarce and desirable piece of original Star Wars movie memorabilia from what has become one of the most collectable and popular modern movie franchises.

Trivia: Obi-Wan never says, “May the Force be with you”. He always says a close variation of the line. The line is spoken by Han Solo (to Luke) and General Dodonna (while addressing the assembled rebel pilots), neither of whom has Force powers.
