Click to enlarge

Other Info: Poster is framed on three sides with a black border and inside the partial silver frame is the rebel cast action montage with Darth Vader looming in the background. This cropped artwork from Kazuhiko Sano was the main illustration used on the majority of the posters around the world for the regular Return of the Jedi advertising campaign. The silver Return of the Jedi logo can be seen at the bottom of the illustration, and below it is the cast and credits area on the bottom black background. This six-sheet poster or small billboard was printed in four sections, to be put together and hung up in an area such as a marquee, on a large wall, or the main display in a theater's lobby. Poster was printed by National Posters, Inc. - Chattanooga, TN. Most of the larger sized posters for the Return of the Jedi, such as this one, are extremely hard to find and if one does show up for sale/auction, they are usually found in less than favorable conditions, because of their age and general handling use after possibly being pasted to a wall. Interesting Note* - Return of the Jedi was one of the last films ever produced to have a six-sheet poster made for it to advertise the film.
