THE FIRST 'REVENGE' TRAILER - A NEW DISCOVERY
The Next Exciting Chapter...
A wonderful recent find from the ACADEMY AWARDS Archives of the US has revealed what could be the first official trailer for REVENGE OF THE JEDI, shown to a rare few British cinema audiences alongside a special STAR WARS/THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK double bill, whose run commenced on May 30th, 1982. The trailer has no footage but contained photo scenes from the movie (planned for release at Christmas 1983 (too long a wait that would have been!) which had only just completed its bulk shooting at London's Elstree Studios, including an intriguing shot of Luke Skywalker with Darth Vader. After the grim revelations of EMPIRE, had he turned to the Dark Side?
