Saturday night at the movies… in Japanese Chirashi!

Star Wars Caravan Of Courage: An Ewok Adventure. 1984. Japanese Chirashi.

Time for some more movie treats!  

Presenting: a selection of Japanese Chirashi film posters direct from the collection of TVTA!

Japanese Chirashi are printed mini-posters or flyers created to promote film releases in Japan. The size of a typical Chirashi is “B5” (approx 7 x 10 inch /18cm x 26cm). Most Chirashis are double-sided with an image from the film printed in colour on the front. Additional artwork and information printed in Japanese appears on the reverse. Chirashi posters are great fun to collect, and TVTA is pleased to add this latest batch to its growing collection

Enjoy your movie 🙂

Saturday night at the movies… Star Wars in Japanese Chirashi!

Japanese Chirashi movie posters – the Star Wars franchise and a continuing saga!

1982. Return of the Jedi. Teaser.


‘Chirashi’ eh? … he sounds familiar, was he one of Jabba’s henchmen, or an Ewok? 

No. A Chirashi is not a Star Wars character but a small double-sided poster handed out at cinemas in Japan to advertise upcoming movies. And TVTA is absolutely delighted to bring you one of the most comprehensive gatherings of Japanese Star Wars film posters this side of the galaxy! Featuring examples of every Star Wars film made to date and more bad puns than you can shake a Gaderffii stick at… this post is sure to have those nasty Imperials hot on our tails!

The Empire Strikes Back / Return of the Jedi. 1986 Double-feature theatre release.


Three-D-PO and Artoo-Won’t-Do

Among my favourites in my Star Wars Chirashi collection is this Phantom Menace 3D poster. Prior to the Disney purchase of Lucasfilm in 2012, George Lucas had intended to make 3D versions of all six films in the Star Wars Prequel and Original Trilogies. The idea was put on ice in favour of concentrating on ‘rebooting the franchise’ with Episode VII and other new films. Hence, only one of the first six films made it as a 3D cinema release – The Phantom Menace in 2012.

2012. The Phantom Menace 3D.


A long time ago in a gallery far, far away

I need to add something for the 2008 animated release The Clone Wars, and I’m yet to find anything for the two Ewok films – Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure edit: found that one at last! and Ewoks: Battle for Endor. If any of these turn up I’ll be sure to include them along with the forthcoming releases… with episode XI scheduled for December 2019, a third instalment of the standalone Star Wars Story in 2020, and talk of future new-character trilogies – this gallery is destined to cause a great disturbance in the force!

That’s no moon… it’s TVTA!

As always, thanks for looking 🙂 Click the images below to make bigger.

A Chirashi is a printed mini-poster or flyer used to promote film releases in Japan. The size of a typical Chirashi is “B5” (approx 7 x 10 inch /18cm x 26cm). A relatively cheap and space-saving alternative to regular-size industry posters, Chirashis make excellent movie memorabilia collectables. You can find all my Chirashi posts here
