From Star Wars to Jedi, Laserdisc, VAP Video, Japan 1986

This Making-of special was released by independent distributor VAP Video in Japan.

I've also heard claims that these were issued previously in Japan on 8" laserdisc. I've yet to see any evidence of this, though.

Japanese laserdiscs command a higher price if they come with their original OBI, a price/information strip that is common on Japanese media but often discarded by the original buyer.

The OBI on this one is an o-ring that wraps around the jacket and can be slid off. It advertises the Classic Creatures special on VHS and Beta formats on the back.

The cover design is credited to one Masa Hirao. I generally like the busy covers typical of the Japanese releases, and this is no exception.
