Other Info: Poster has the pink and orangish Thomas Jung illustration with the yellow block title lettering for the Empire Strikes Back logo. At the bottom, on the dark navy blue background is the cast and credits area along with the 20th Century Fox symbol and PG ratings box. This poster was part of the the first round of re-release posters for the Empire Strikes Back, that debuted in the Summer of '81. It is also one of the first domestic theatrical poster to use Yoda's image. Lucasfilm Ltd. wanted to keep him a mystery during the initial release, so he was omitted from the original Empire Strikes Back poster campaign. Windowbox posters (30 x 40's) have an additional 1½" 's of white border on the sides of the illustration versus the traditional one-sheet versions. They are also printed on a heavy stock paper.
