This Return of the Jedi teaser trailer from 1982 features early looks at many of the film's most famous scenes, and is the first trailer to feature the movie's new title - famously, it was originally called Revenge of the Jedi until George Lucas opted to change the name, noting that revenge is not the Jedi way. The trailer focuses heavily on the idea of "return," with the narrator opening the preview by saying, "Return to a galaxy far, far away," and later, "Return to heroic adventure," and "Return to the ultimate confrontation."

The trailer showcases many scenes out of sequence, focusing on action and the heroes and villains of the film. The opening shot is of Han, Chewie, Luke, C-3PO, Leia, and R2-D2 aboard the stolen Imperial shuttle Tydirium, en route to Endor ("You ready everybody?" Han says. "Chewie, let's see what this piece of junk can do."), then cuts to the Millennium Falcon during the Rebels' assault on the Death Star, shows Jabba and much of the battle on his sail barge, Ewoks battling Stormtroopers on Endor, and the final duel between Luke and Darth Vader in the presence of the Emperor. The trailer actually does not feature the complete Return of the Jedi logo.
