No, that’s not a typo. Any Star Wars fan can tell you that the original title for the final installment of the original trilogy was Revenge of the Jedi. Franchise creator George Lucas eventually changed the title to Return of the Jedi before release because he had determined that getting revenge was not something a Jedi would seek out.
However, the Star Wars sequel was teased so far out in advance of the release that some marketing materials still had the title Revenge of the Jedi. The teaser poster featuring that title is worth a pretty penny, but there was also a teaser trailer that had the abandoned title still intact, and The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has dusted it off and posted it online.

When I saw the Spotify ad with all grown up Atreyu flying around on Falcor listening to Limahl’s theme song to The Neverending Story, I tweeted about it. This caught the attention of Tami Stronach, who when she was 11 played the Childlike Empress in the film. She’s been engaging fans with Falcor drawing contests and news about her current activities, so I arranged an interview with Stronach by phone out of New York.
