    Tom Jung (American, 20th Century)
    Star Wars: Episode V - Empire Strikes Back, movie poster concept art, 1980
    Pencil on paper
    18.5 x 15 in. (image)
    Not signed

    Concept movie poster art by famed designer Tom Jung for "The Empire Strikes Back", revised here to include Harrison Ford as "Han Solo", who emerged from "Star Wars" as one of the lead characters in the franchise. The large, dramatic artwork features Darth Vader with a beckoning, outstretched arm, standing ominously over his horde of Stormtroopers, with Luke Skywalker riding a tauntaun and Han Solo firing his DL-44 blaster.

    A postcard of the final advertising artwork accompanies this lot.
