Other Info: This M.A.P.S. Litho Pty. Ltd. printed one-sheet 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 one-sheets started running low. Poster has a lighter blue lettering for the cast and credits text area, sitting atop a white background. Notice the smaller blue SW logo under the illustration unlike the second print run, a blue ratings box next to the logo, and the words "c. 1977 Twentieth Century-Fox" underneath the art on the left hand side. 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 left hand side at the top. Very few copies of this initial printing from Australia are still floating around for sale today.
