Other Info: This South Korean poster contains a mashup collage of live movie scenes built upon the Thomas Jung and the Hildebrandt Bros. "Star Wars" drawings. At the top, the poster features a section that showcases how many awards the film received at the 50th Academy Awards. It shows a small Oscar statuette next to each of the vertical lists of winning categories, along with the "☆1978 年은 「스타 • 워스」의 해!" (☆1978 is the year of "Star • Wars" !) red text at the top. The poster is mostly in Korean and Chinese text, and montage is sitting on top of a starry background field, and white credits area. On the upper left hand side, it features an infamous picture of the upside down Death Star, and across the middle are several action scenes from the film, including (Stormtrooper running down prison cell block corridor, C-3PO and R2D2, Luke and Han firing blasters, Chewie and Ben Kenobi, with lightsaber drawn, and more Stormtroopers guarding the Millennium Falcon). A 給天然色 (Natural color) Panavision emblem starts the pyramid logo, with the blue Star Wars text and then the Korean film title, "스타•워즈" below in red. To the left of the film titles is the cast and credits, mostly in Korean, along with the 20th Century Fox copyright (© 20th Century Fox) printed in the lower left hand corner. On the right in Chinese/Korean it has the names of the director and producer - George Lucas and Gary Kurtz. At the bottom right it has the Samyoung Import Co., Ltd. distributors emblem ((株)三映入配输) and at the bottom center it says, "War of the Stars". This overall poster design composition was also used in other Asian countries. (See pics below)
