    Star Wars (1977)

    Please notify me when this poster is available:

    • This is an original, Style D, one-sheet movie poster from 1978 for Star Wars starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Alec Guinness, James Earl Jones, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker. George Lucas directed the film. Drew Struzan and Charles White are the artists for the poster.

      Star Wars was released on May 25, 1977 in just 32 theaters. The initial release officially lasted until July 20, 1978 (and the film was technically "re-released" the following day on July 21, 1978). This Style D poster, reportedly a favorite of George Lucas, was issued to theaters to promote the ongoing, initial release of the film in July 1978.

      The detailed art by Drew Struzan and Charles White makes the poster appear worn and tattered although, upon closer examination, it is not.

      The poster measures 27" x 41" and is in very good to excellent condition with single pinholes in the corners from theatrical display. It was folded at the time of printing. Most folds flatten out nicely for framing and are often desirable for vintage, collectible movie posters. The poster has very minor wear along the edges and folds from previous handling.

      Please look closely at the photos as they shows the exact poster you are buying. They are not from a stock image.

      This rare and collectible poster, printed in 1978 to promote the extended, initial theatrical release of Star Wars, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
