Native Language: Return of the Jedi
Date / Version: (1983) Style "B"
Artwork by: Kazuhiko Sano
Poster Size: 82" x 84" (208.28cm x 213.36cm)
Condition: NM, poster is single-sided, was folded as issued, but now is nice, shiny, and rolled, having been recently linenbacked. It had some slight restoration to restore some paper loss and inconsistencies, but this extremely huge and rare poster is now ready for framing and will be admired by all your friends and collectors. Because there have only ever been 5 or 6 of these ROTJ 6-Sheets to have ever surfaced since '83 (and most of the ones we have come across have been in bad shape), don't let this new gem get away. It will make your Star Wars theatrical poster collection become world class.
- Near Mint "NM" - Poster is virtually unused and in premium original condition. May have the slightest edge wear from improper handling, and a random scuff mark or two.
- Excellent "EX" - Poster has minor flaws, may contain small scuffs and dimples, crinkles, minute edge tears, and wear, but highly presentable.
- Fine "FN" - Poster has obvious small flaws from being in circulation and handled, but it is still highly presentable and in nice condition. Most used theatrical posters from around the world will fall into this category.
- Good "GD"- Poster is acceptable, may have tears, folds, stains, tape on back, small pieces missing.
- Poor "PR" - Poster is in bad condition and it should be restored. Unless otherwise noted, we usually do not sell any posters in this condition.

We do not sell photo/digital reprints or reproductions of these posters. These items are the "real deal" unless otherwise noted in the summary of the description.

Poster is framed on three sides with a black border and inside the partial 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 in a small billboard, on a large wall, or mainly in a theater's lobby. Poster was printed by National Posters, Inc. - Chattanooga, TN. Most of the larger sized posters for 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 or billboard.
