Old School Fridays: Star Wars Episode VI - Revenge of the Jedi

It can't be Friday already!?! Time for another edition of Old School Fridays! This Friday we're looking at the original teaser trailer for the final Star Wars film, Revenge of the Jedi. Or is it Return of the Jedi? Regardless, check it out:

Return of the Jedi was originally titled Revenge of the Jedi, but only a few weeks before the film opened, George Lucas decided to change the title, claiming that Jedis don't take revenge, thus this is how the film is now known as Return of the Jedi. This trailer was from the time before that title change, which is why it's so special to us Star Wars fans. Of course this trailer must have also been before they decided to make Luke's new lightsaber green for the movie, cause in this trailer it's blue. This trailer is a little rough around the edges, and is extremely nostalgic, reminding one of the old movie serials in which Star Wars was based upon. Even still, as a Star Wars geek, this one is too good to pass up.

That does it for this Friday. Tune in next week for another edition of Old School Fridays!
