Star Wars: Return of the Jedi 1984 Calendar

I often try to post something for Star Wars Day which is May 4th and this year Return of the Jedi is celebrating its 40th anniversary (it's now in theaters through the 4th). As I write this I've got nothing prepared but I'm going to try and put some more posts and maybe a video or two together that relate to Return of the Jedi. There are a variety of Star Wars related posts on the blog already, though the only previous post that is only about a product from the third movie is this one: Star Wars: Jabba the Hutt Throne Room Model Kit. For this post I photographed the 1984 Return of the Jedi calendar, it was too big to scan so I had to go with photos. It's a little beat up but still in decent condition and it has some hand writing in it, especially in December where someone, likely my sister, appears to have been counting down the days until Christmas. The calendar has some pre-printed notes in it too, like holidays, though it also mentions the dates that principal photography began on each Star Wars film and the birthdays of the primary actors. In the middle of the calendar is a poster of Imperial ships and the 2nd Death Star above Endor.
