Other Info: This poster was used as a promotional advertisement for the May, 1989 release of Pioneer Electronic's LaserDisc player system model CLD-100 in Japan. It was the first fully compatible CD/CDV/LD player. The poster contains the traditional Thomas Jung illustration, with the sexy Princess Leia pose standing beside Luke Skywalker holding his lightsaber high in the air, pointed to the stars. C-3PO and R2-D2 are standing below Vader's large background helmet and there are X-wings racing to the Death Star overhead on the left. It has the tagline, "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..." in the top left hand corner, and the Star Wars triangular logo is located in the white credit block to the lower right hand side. The cast and crew information and the 20th Century Fox, Dolby System, and Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Box emblems, along with the copyright (© 20th Century Fox) are printed at the bottom of the poster. This all English poster version, printed in Japan, confuses a lot of people and they mix this one up thinking it is a US style "A" one-sheet reprint. The size and/or color reproduction are the only ways to identify that the poster was printed up for use in the Japanese market.
