Other Info: The movie was such a phenomenon in Australia, that it required a second initial print run of theatrical posters. This set of one-sheets still contained the traditional style "A" illustration by Thomas Jung, encased by a blue inner border. They had the sexy Princess Leia pose standing beside Luke Skywalker holding his lightsaber high in the air, pointing 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 also had the famous tagline at the top saying, "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..."., but, they were slightly different from the first printed posters, yet they are still considered an original release. The minor changes included an increase in the size of the blue Star Wars logo, under the illustration, and the "NRC" rating box's coloring was changed to fuchsia. The copyright - "c. 1977 Twentieth Century-Fox" remained the same as the first one-sheet. The 20th Century Fox and Dolby Stereo emblems are found at the bottom of the billing block, in the white footer region, and the printer's information - M.A.P.S. Litho Pty. Ltd. is still seen on the right-hand bottom border.
