Other Info: Poster is one of the most easily recognizable and collectible movie poster artworks of all time. It contains the traditional Thomas Jung illustration, with the sexy Princess Leia pose standing beside Luke Skywalker holding his lightsaber high in the air, pointed to the stars. C-3PO and R2-D2 are standing below Vader's large background helmet and there are X-wings racing to the Death Star overhead to the left. It has the tagline, "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..." in the top left hand corner, and the Star Wars triangular logo straddles the design and the credits area to the lower right hand side.
