This is an original, rolled, undated, one-sheet teaser poster from 1982 for Return of the Jedi starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams, Frank Oz, James Earl Jones, Peter Mayhew, Alec Guinness and Kenny Baker. Richard Marquand directed the film. Drew Struzan is the artist for the poster.
Most of the teaser posters printed featured the text "Coming May 25, 1983 to your galaxy" at the bottom of the poster. A very small number (a few hundred) of posters were also printed with no date information at the bottom. This poster was sourced directly from a former employee of the printing company that produced these posters back in 1982. It has been carefully stored without exposure to light for over thirty-five years.
The poster measures exactly 26 7/8" x 40 13/16" and is in excellent, unused condition with minimal wear from previous handling. It has never been folded or displayed.
The poster offered here has been carefully vetted and, like all our posters, is fully guaranteed to be authentic and original with a lifetime, money-back guarantee of authenticity.
Please look closely at the photos (this is the exact poster you are buying). It is not a stock image. The black square in the corners of the poster are magnets and not pins.
This extremely rare and collectible poster, printed in 1982 to tease the initial theatrical release of Return of the Jedi, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
