“The Star Wars saga continues”…
Absolutely beautiful, original 1980 US one sheet movie poster for the George Lucas sci fi classic sequel “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back”. This final release style B design features Tom Jung’s superb painted artwork highlighted by an incredible image of Darth Vader (so pivotal in this instalment of the franchise) looming large over our heroes. Being originally folded (as issued) this poster has been linen backed (folds flattened out) and now displays and presents to excellent effect with deep rich unfaded colours. It represents a fine addition for any collector of original movie posters or Star Wars fan memorabilia.

Instead, he bankrolled the $18 million production himself, using a combination of his profits from Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977) and a bank loan.
