Vintage Return of the Jedi/Jabba the Hutt Cereal Insert from General Mills Canada

December 29, 2010

From what I understand, this small booklet is one of a series that was included with some General Mills cereals in Canada in 1983. It’s about 3″ tall and folds out to reveal 5  “pages” filled with photos and text (both in English and French). One thing I found interesting was that in the French text Jabba is referred to in three different ways: “Le Hutt Jabba,” “Jabba Le Hutt,” and “Jabba the Hutt” (as in “Ensemble de jeu Jabba the Hutt”). I don’t speak French, but you’d think they could’ve settled on one version.

It’s actually got some pretty nice closeup shots of the aliens of Jabba’s palace, as well as ads for the Vintage Jabba the Hutt Playset and a couple of Star Wars games for the Atari 2600 (both of which I had as a kid). Click the images below for a closer view.
