Other Info: This is the rather unique Japanese advance poster for the third film of the trilogy. The design has the English Revenge of the Jedi logo being projected out of the Japanese title logo (スター・ウォーズ ジェダイの復讐) with a multi-colored flare effect. The layout has a black star-field background and across the top 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 poster was released by the Twentieth Century Fox-Far East Branch in 1982. With a full white border framing the poster, at the bottom in that white space it has printed, Coming this Summer! (Toho System) Simultaneous road show! It also includes the 20th Century Fox modern emblem and Twentieth Century Fox title spelled out. Very few copies of this teaser poster are still circulating in the wild because of it's high demand by collectors. Japan and Great Britain are the only international countries to have printed up promotional theatrical one-sheets/quads with the Revenge of the Jedi title on their advance posters. Interesting Note* - Japan continued to print - "スター・ウォーズ ジェダイの復讐" on all of their "Return of the Jedi" theatrical posters even though the Japanese title still translated to "Revenge of the Jedi".
