A new poster for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker not only rocks, it also has historical significance.

It pays homage to what is a very rare promotional poster for Return of the Jedi. There was nothing wrong with the design at all, it just had a slight issue with the film’s title – as up until quite late in the movie’s creation it was known as Revenge of the Jedi. But then Mr Lucas decided that Jedi’s don’t seek revenge and softened the title.

So, here’s that classic, followed by the new homage:
