CLASSIC IMAGE: JAPANESE "JEDI"



The Japanese enduring affection for incredible worlds, spaceships, alien characters and weaponry has never been more apparent than with their posters for the Classic STAR WARS Trilogy, as seen from this great RETURN OF THE JEDI compilation image from 1983. Though Jabba the Hutt and The Emperor are missing (presumably because, at the time the poster was being put together, the characters roles and appearance in the film were still relatively top secret), its got everything else but the kitchen sink thrown into it to entice audiences, and notice how Harrison Ford, with his prior success as Indiana Jones, now gets a separate photo section near the title.

A spectacular poster for a worthy conclusion to the Saga...
