Other Info: This unique horizontal landscape Bie-zen poster has the upper half showing a movie scene which includes the famous Imperial Star Destroyer sitting across from Death Star II during it's construction phase. In the orbit above the forest moon of Endor, TIE-fighters are streaming towards the mobile battle station, along with a Lambda-class T-4a shuttle. The upper torso of Darth Vader is also seen on the right hand side of the starry background, with the tagline calling him - Imperial Army Commander Darth Vader. At the top left, in Japanese text, it is explaining the synopsis of the film from Luke Skywalkers origins on Tatooine to this secret construction of a more powerful Death Star that will bring an end to the pitiful Rebels. There are also two inset pictures of the space Battle of Endor below Darth Vader's image. At the bottom of the design on a white background is another photo montage layout to the left containing several more action scenes and characters from the film. Included in the lot are Han Solo w/pistol drawn, Luke and Leia swinging from Jabba's LO-KD57 sail barge, the Khetanna, Obi-wan Kenobi, Master Yoda, Bib Fortuna, Chewbacca, and Lando Calrissian. The droids Artoo-Deetoo and See-Threepio are in the right hand corner. Beside Solo's picture is a small English Return of the Jedi logo and at the bottom right of the poster is the credits area block with the centered blue/red Japanese title logo スター・ウォーズ ジェダイの復讐 with the cast and crew information below it. Above the logo 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!). The 20th Century Fox, Dolby Stereo, and the Eirin (映倫 58155) emblems, along with the copyright (© Lucasfilm Ltd. LFL 1983) are printed towards the bottom right corner of the poster. The layout of this quad poster was very uncommon in Japanese posters from the original trilogy.
