Other Info: This smaller Japanese poster with a thin white border, contains an updated, almost re-imagined illustration by Seito, using the familiar Thomas Jung original elements, with the addition of some building cityscapes, a hilltop mound, and by placing the two Rebel droids on the opposite side of our heroes. The poster has an overall bluish overtone and Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia are done in a more stylish anime design with tight clothes, bulging muscles, and facial characteristics. At the top the tagline says, "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...", in a white lettering, sitting above Vader's looming helmet in the background. On the upper left hand side, it features the infamous picture of the upside down Death Star (a Japanese artistic decision found on several of their illustrations) and across the middle is the upward X-wings, and Leia's flowing gown. A blue Star Wars logo is found in the lower right quadrant, with the Japanese film title, "スター・ウォーズ" below the logo in red. To the left of the two film titles is the cast and credits, mostly in Japanese, along with the 20th Century Fox, Dolby System, and the Eirin (映倫 53009) emblems. The poster also features a section that showcases how many awards the film received at the 50th Academy Awards. It shows a small Oscar statuette and lists the different winning categories in a vertical fashion, along with the 50th Academy Awards Winner red text at the top. The poster is highly collectible among avid Japanese gaming fans. Interesting Note* - The Japanese artist Seito is responsible for some very wonderful illustrated posters, yet to this day, very little is known about him even in his native Japan.
