Other Info: This poster contains the dynamic and unique French Return of the Jedi "Le Retour du Jedi" collage by the artist Michel Jouin. At the top of the illustration is a blue starry background with several spacecraft (X-wings, Star Destroyer, TIE-fighters) speeding towards or flying away from the Death Star II image. The composition is segmented into different scenes from the film starting with Darth Vader's helmet in the middle and the Emperor's Royal Guard standing on duty. The Rebels are clustered below him with Luke Skywalker holding his lightsaber up in the air and Han Solo firing his blaster pistol. Just above them are several Ewoks and Jabba the Hutt in his palace. The battle on the Forest Moon of Endor is on the left-hand side, highlighted with green tones, and there are scenes from the Battle of the Great Pit of Carkoon on Tatooine on the right, highlighted by yellow and orange overtones. The French title logo, in red, is centered in the upper portion of the artwork. The poster also contains the line "Retour; Editions du Weekend" (Return; Weekend editions) at the bottom. The poster could be purchased commercially as a promotional item for the upcoming film Le Retour du Jedi in France. It is #1 in the 'Retour' series of French one-sheets.
