"THE REVENGE OF THE JEDI" ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTER. This REVENGE OF THE JEDI Poster is spectacular!!! It ia the one with the RELEASE DATE "COMING MAY 25, 1983 TO YOUR GALAXY". It is ROLLED in MINT CONDITION and MEASURES 27 1/8" x 41 1/16".
It is UNUSED and is ROLLED! The COLORS are rich and vibrant with "NO CLOUDS" in the lower right corner that the repros have. I GUARANTEE IT ORIGINAL AS I DO ALL MY POSTERS!! THE REVENGE OF THE JEDI ORIGINAL POSTER WAS PRINTED IN 1982 AND THEN RECALLED BY GEORGE LUCAS FOR IT'S FAMOUS NAME CHANGE.
Another bit of STAR WARS Lore that you may not know, but I read as reported in VARIETY at the time.... "A Jedi Knight would NEVER commit revenge" was the excuse Mr. Lucas gave to 20th Century Fox for the change, which in turn cost 20th a bundle in changing ALL the many promotional items and tie- ins which had been already made and printed.. Including this most collectible RARE ORIGINAL POSTER.
VARIETY reported that LUCAS had not wanted STAR WARS released on video. He didnt believe that the video media did justice to STAR WARS. In his contract there was an overlooked clause that allowed him the right to change the title.Jedi Knights dont commit revenge... Mr Lucas stuffed the extended light saber right up 20th's asteroid. Or so the story goes.. A NEW PIECE OF TRIVIA was just pointed out to me by a great STAR WARS fan that i had never read about that only adds to it's collectibility (and no it is not an April Fools joke)... THIS POSTER HAS AN ERROR. THE COLORS OF THE LIGHT SABERS ARE REVERSED. LUKE'S SHOULD BE BLUE AND VADER'S SHOULD BE RED. DO NOT PASS UP THIS RARE OPPORTUNITY TO OWN THIS BEAUTIFUL AND RARE STAR WARS POSTER... AS A GIFT TO YOURSELF, AS A FAN, COLLECTOR, OR AS AN INVESTMENT PIECE. " MAY THE FORCE WITH YOU". Help me take this mask off my face.
I started collecting NEW and VINTAGE ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTERS especially GONE WITH THE WIND, STAR WARS, SPIELBERG, DISNEY, ACADEMY AWARD WINNERS, BATMAN, LORD OF THE RINGS, CULT, CAMP, TRASH, ETC!!! At the age of 27 in 1976 when I lived in NYC. Needless to say, it is a diverse and eclectic collection of over 650 POSTERS. I also collected ANIMATION ART, specifically ORIGINAL DISNEY HAND PAINTED PRODUCTION BACKGROUND PAINTINGS that went under camera in the filming of Disney movies. The Movie Poster and Animation Art I will present will be interesting, diverse, original and in many cases a rare opportunity for any "collector".
Yes, some are Museum quality pieces. And wait till you see what may be COMING SOON TO A THEATRE NEAR YOU!!! Too often in life we regret not doing things that we are able to do, for whatever reason, when we are presented with the opportunity to do so. I say Never live with regret.
