A production storyboard from Richard Marquand's 1983 space opera Star Wars Episode VI Return of the Jedi.
Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) battles Jabba the Hut and Darth Vader to save his comrades in the Rebel Alliance and triumph over the Galactic Empire. Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) reaffirm their love and team with Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) and the Ewoks to fight the Dark Side and the evil emperor..
This storyboard shows a wide shot of Ewoks hiding from the wrath of the Stormtroopers, who were retaliating after an Ewok ambush at the Endor shield generator bunker. A production template below shows that this storyboard is also planning to include lasers, achieved through animation, alongside the live action.
It is printed in black and white on white paper with three holes punched at the top, indicating that it comes from an extensive shot-by-shot storyboard. It is dated "Jan 25 1982".
The storyboard comes beautifully presented in a custom-built framed display with laser-cut mount board featuring the classic movie title. The piece is in excellent condition.
Materials: Card, Wood, Paper, Ferrous Metals.
