'Revenge of the Jedi' Trailer Discovered by the Academy

It has been known for quite some time that "Star Wars Episode VI's" title at one time was not "Return of the Jedi" but instead "Revenge of the Jedi." While George Lucas finally settled on "Return of the Jedi," as we all know it, there were promotional materials released with "Revenge" in the title.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences uncovered this rare copy of "Episode VI's" trailer with the word "Revenge" in the title. They uploaded the trailer today in honor of "Star Wars" 39th birthday. It's very cool to see that at one time this beloved film which we known so well as "Return" was almost called something else.
