Other Info: This teaser was created for the promotion of Richard Marquand's upcoming Star Wars: Return of the Jedi film, in Great Britain. The quad has the advance illustrated art, by Drew Struzan, that has a black and reddish swirling contrast design. Darth Vader's semi-transparent headshot is in the background, and it has the tagline at both the top and bottom, in opposite corners, that says, "The Saga Continues In Your Galaxy Soon". It features Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Darth Vader (David Prowse) lightsaber dueling in the middle of the poster, which was a perceived suspicion to the outcome of the film. The film's logo, Return of the Jedi can be seen on the upper right-hand side, in light gold and yellow lettering, set on a black base. This rare red-and-black quad also has the 20th Century Fox emblem and copyright information on the lower left-hand side and the poster was - Printed in England by Lonsdale & Bartholomew Ltd. Nottingham. This is another highly sought out piece of cinema memorabilia from the original trilogy, that, as it turns out, was also printed in other movie tie-in variations to help cross-promote the film with - Parker Brothers, Palitoy, and Dairy Time Yogurts.

Variations*: This quad can also be found with other branding phrase snipes, in the right-hand region, touting different products - (eg. Toys Available Here, Parker Video Games Available, "Star Wars" Yogurts Here).
