Other Info: The Revenge of the Sith International print campaign was created by New Wave Entertainment, located in Burbank, CA. It was comprised of six different "Character" scenes that were used around the globe as secondary advertising for the film. Countries would print up the posters/banners in various sizes and use all of them or just certain ones for their cinema promotions. The character scenes included - Anakin Skywalker vs. Obi-wan Kenobi, lightsaber dueling on the fiery volcanic world of Mustafar - a Clone trooper running towards the viewer holding his blaster rifle - Darth Vader on Mustafar, with raised clenched fist and tagline, "Rise Lord Vader" - Grand Master Yoda, with green lightsaber drawn, in the Imperial Senate Chamber during his ferocious duel with Darth Sidious - General Grievous, the brilliant Separatist military strategist and a feared Jedi hunter, twirling two lightsabers - and Jedi Master Mace Windu, the champion of the Jedi Order, swinging his amethyst-bladed lightsaber. This ad poster contains the "Darth Vader" character with the tagline, "目覚めよダース・ベイダー" (Wake up, Darth Vader), and it has the (July 9) release date on it along with the Japanese film title, "Star Wars エピソード3" at the right. The Lucasfilm Ltd. and 20th Century Fox emblems are on the left hand lower side. Interesting Note* - These transit banners are atypical because they are the normal B3 size height, but 20 inches wider.

Variations*: There are multiple copies of these posters with different characters and information on them from the "Characters" series of advertisements in Japan from エピソード3.
