Must Watch: First Teaser for 'Revenge of the Jedi' Delivers the Action
When the first teaser trailer for The Empire Strikes Back arrived in 1980, there was only Ralph McQuarrie's concept art and some publicity still shots of stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher to accompany them. But with the first teaser for next summer's release of Revenge of the Jedi, we get some real footage. Fox is still using the "epic battle of heroes and villains" line that they used from the beginning of the saga, and Darth Vader gets a grand entrance with a lot of dramatic head turns. Plus, it's good to see Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) back, and it seems like Han Solo gets rescued from carbonite at some point. But who's that lobster man saying, "It's a trap!" That's a bit of a cliche, right? Watch it below!
Here's the first teaser for Richard Marquand's Revenge of the Jedi, originally from StarWars.com:
Revenge of the Jedi is directed by Richard Marquand (Eye of the Needle) with a screenplay from Empire Strikes Back scribe Lawrence Kasdan and Star Wars writer and director George Lucas. Plot details are still scarce, but there have been rumors of a second Death Star, which could be what the Millennium Falcon is flying out of towards the end. There's also a whole slew of Star Destroyers, a forest planet with some cool vehicles, and some action back on Tatooine. 20th Century Fox sends the film to theaters May 25th, 1983.
