This is the ROTJ Style A. It is a very common and well known work of art painted by Tim Reamer. The art direction and design was done by Paykos Phior. It isn't that hard to find an original rolled because movie posters were starting to be sent rolled to most theaters at this time. A legend about this poster is that the hands holding the lightsaber are thought to be that of George Lucas himself. Another rumor stated that this was supposed to be the advance, but the art wasn't done in time. (We haven't confirmed this.) Note the raised hands with the lightsaber are reminiscent of the Tom Jung ANH Style A poster.
