“The Empire Falls…”
For the third chapter of the original Star Wars trilogy Japan took the creative lead and produced a number of distinctive posters to accompany the 1983 release of “Star Wars: Episode V – Return of the Jedi”. Two were pure art whilst the others were a a superb series of photo montage posters. Offered here is an incredibly rare quad style landscape B1 Japanese film poster which features a magnificent combination of photographs. The photographic images highlight the main characters and key scenes with the Death Star, Darth Vader and a Star Destroyer all prominent and all presented in this uncommon landscape large format. Totally original and in fantastic rolled (as issued) unrestored condition this beautiful example looks magnificent; deep unfaded vibrant colours complemented by eye-catching design it represents a fine item of original Star Wars movie memorabilia from what was until recently the “last” true Star Wars movie produced.
