CLASSIC ART: 'THE VADER CAPE'
The love it or hate it early sneak-peek poster for EPISODE III from 2004, or "The Vader Cape" as its often known, which also gave us a glimpse of the new look, battle-scarred Anakin Skywalker holding a red lightsaber, soon completing his journey to the Dark Side...
Whatever you think of the poster, you have to applaud Lucas and his then promotional team for its originality. I doubt future STAR WARS teaser marketing will ever be quite so imaginative again.
HAPPY ELEVENTH BIRTHDAY TODAY TO 'STAR WARS EPISODE III: REVENGE OF THE SITH'!
