Other Info: This M.A.P.S. Litho Pty. Ltd. printed daybill was used early on and it is from the original first print run. A second print run was needed when Star Wars became a mega hit at the box office in Australia. These first two Jung versions were then replaced with the popular international Tom Chantrell style "C" artwork when supplies of the Jung daybills started running low. Poster has blue lettering for the cast and credits text area, while sitting atop a white background. Notice the smaller blue SW logo under the illustration, the blue ratings box, and the words "c. 1977 Twentieth Century-Fox". The Thomas Jung illustration is sitting in the middle to upper third of the poster and the tagline, "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..." is across the top.

Variations*: The New Zealand version of this poster omits the ratings box and is usually found with a "GY" classification stamped in this area. (Approved for general exhibition: but restricted as more suitable for persons 13 years of age and over). This NZ daybill can also be found without a stamp, leaving the area completely blank.
