“You underestimate the power of the Dark Side. If you will not fight, then you will meet your destiny.”
For the third chapter of the original Star Wars trilogy “Return of the Jedi” Lucasfilm successfully chose a number of internationally acclaimed artists to present a varied series of designs for the Worldwide advertising campaign. The poster here is the Yamakatsu issued Style A Japanese B2. Not an official cinema poster but was sold exclusively in a small number of Japanese cinemas where the movie was playing. At first view you would assume it to be a photo-montage design but it’s actually highly detailed artwork featuring all of the main characters and spacecraft. Only available in limited numbers and is rare and highly desirable. Presented here in excellent unrestored rolled (as issued) condition this incredible example looks superb. A fantastic item of collectable Star Wars movie memorabilia from what was (until 2015) the defining chapter in the Star Wars original trilogy.
“The Emperor’s made a critical error, and the time for our attack has come.”
