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 one-sheet was the first re-release poster for the Empire Strikes Back, that debuted in the Summer of '81. It is also 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. (Tag style info - Gau Union bug / Printed In U.S.A / One Sheet - Empire Strikes Back - Rerelease Summer 81)

Variations*: Two version printings of this poster exist. A National Screen version and a Studio version.
