Vintage Italian Return of the Jedi Theater Lobby Poster with Jabba the Hutt (“Il Ritorno dello Jedi”)

August 11, 2012

This poster was one of a series that hung in Italian movie theaters during the original release of Return of the Jedi. They’re like lobby cards, but somewhat bigger at roughly 17.5″ x 25.5″. They also have all of the information about the movie’s cast, etc. so they can function as standalone posters. Each one had a couple of different photos from the movie, as you can see in the shot of the full set below. I only have the one picturing Jabba. It’s kind of unusual to see a movie poster that features Jabba and Bib so prominently. I’d like to get this framed at some point, but the unusual size will probably make it an expensive proposition. 😦

    Some of the image pairings are odd. What does a Gamorrean Guard have to do with the Alliance’s briefing room?

      No idea, but I guess that sort of part of the charm. 🙂
