Other Info: This "It's Back!" daybill design uses the same layout as the US '81 Star Wars re-release inserts/one-sheets. It contains elements from Thomas Jung's original illustration with a largely black background. The US version has an additional line of text - "For Two Weeks Only" on the yellow banner below the "The Force Will be With You" tagline. This Australian version omits that time frame notice because they were promoting their own re-release of the film in April '82, which lasted considerably longer. A lot of Australian cinemas would stick their theater brand snipes in this extra blank yellow space. The daybill has the M.A.P.S. Litho Pty. Ltd. emblem printed on the bottom white border and the "NRC" rating box is seen beside the Thomas Jung art logo. The cast and credits billing block, along with the 20th Century Fox and Dolby Stereo emblems, are located at the bottom.
