Star Wars: Behind The Scenes: Book VI: Movie Posters

The series has reached its end.


2. Theatrical Release Posters

The Star Wars Style A poster is considered to be among the best known of all movie posters. Painted by Tom Jung, the image of Han and Leia beside the lightsaber-wielding Luke for The Empire Strikes Back was incorporated into the Star Wars logo for use on countless pieces of merchandise. The original painting is hanging in Skywalker Ranch.

Actress Debbie Reynolds, the mother of Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), loved the painting so much that she asked Tom to do a duplicate of the artwork for her. Tom went on to create the cover art for the bestselling Star Wars novels Heir To The Empire, Dark Force Rising, and The Last Command.

The style B poster for Return Of The Jedi was painted by Kazuhiko Sano instead.
