Other Info: The artwork on this Japanese Return of the Jedi style "B" Chirashi was the main illustration used on the majority of the posters around the world for the regular advertising campaign. It contains that traditional poster art with the Rebel cast action montage and Darth Vader looming in the background, with X-wing fighters heading towards the Death Star II. It also has the smaller headed Lando Calrissian portrait. At the top of the artwork in red lettering it reads, "Star Wars シリーズ第3弾⇒エピソード完結篇!" (Star Wars Series 3rd ⇒ Episode Complete!). In the lower right hand corner of the illustration is a small inset English Return of the Jedi logo, along with Sano's signature green symbol. In the lower middle third is the centered credits area block with the blue/red Japanese title logo スター・ウォーズ ジェダイの復讐 and the cast and crew information below it. The 20th Century Fox, Dolby Stereo, and the copyright (© Lucasfilm Ltd. LFL 1983) are printed at the bottom of the small handbill. On the back there is a black and white monotone collage picture of the "Jedi" characters, a unique drawing of the Emperor, and several starships. The text is mostly in Japanese and includes a synopsis of film, release date, and cast information.
