Kenny Baker's three-page signed contract from the production of Richard Marquand's Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. This lot comes from the estate of renowned actor Kenny Baker.

Created by Chapter III Productions Limited, the contract features several typed paragraphs concerning Baker's pay and detailing his agreement to reprise the role of R2-D2 and new character Wicket for Return of the Jedi. Baker was originally meant to play Wicket, but fell ill on the first day of shooting, so the role was given to Warwick Davis.

Dated "January 1, 1982", the contract is signed at the bottom of the third page in black ink by Baker and in blue ink by producer Howard Kazanjian. The contract displays light creasing, brown marks and staple holes, and each page has a horizontal fold line from storage. Dimensions: 28 cm x 21.5 cm (11" x 8½")

Estimate: £2,000 - 3,000 M
