Other Info: This is an original Slovenian poster for Star Wars, using the Thomas Chantrell illustration art. It depicts the action montage with the space cosmos background. The main cast members are holding and firing weapons, and Darth Vader is in the background clenching his drawn red lightsaber. Luke Skywalker is front and center pointing a laser pistol at the viewer, and multiple X-wings are racing around the composition. With an explosion on the right, the Death Star looms towards the left edge of the layout. A smaller C-3PO, R2-D2 and Chewbacca are tucked in underneath Leia, and the faces of Grand Moff Tarkin and Obi-wan Kenobi are floating on the left hand side. The film's title logo, Vojna zvezd, can be found below the composition in a black lettering, in the footer region. There is also a tagline, just below the title saying, "* 7 oskara *" (* 7 Oscars *). The poster has a white framing border, and across the bottom is the distributors emblem (Kinema Sarajevo), duplicated many times. Kinema Sarajevo was a Yugoslav social (public) cinematographic company. It was the major company used for the production, sale, and screening of films based in Sarajevo. It was founded in 1946, and it was in charge of importing and the showing a foreign film programs throughout the entire territory of the SFRY. It's successor is the Filmski centar Sarajevo. The film was first shown in Slovenia on 18 August 1978, at the Šiška cinema. It was screened in a special sound technique, and due to the length of the film, ticket prices were higher than usual.

Variations*: This rare version is exactly like the other Yugoslavian one-sheet style "C" version, except that the film's title and tagline at the bottom are in Slovenian.
