Description: As part of a project called the 'Star Wars Movie Poster Series', Matt Ranzetta has reimagined some of cinemas most famous and endearing films - by adding that extra special Star Wars twist- in this case taking inspiration from 'The Jedi Returns' and implanting it in the world of Empire of the Sun - a 1987 American epic coming of age war film based on J.G. Ballards semi-autobiographical novel. Directed by Steven Spielberg and starring a young Christian Bale. The film tells the story of Jamie 'Jim' Graham, a young boy who goes from living in a wealthy British family in Shanghai, to becoming a prisoner of war in a Japanese internment camp, during World War II.
