Today marks the 40th anniversary of the theatrical release of The Empire Strikes Back, and Lucasfilm has now shared a new poster in celebration of what is widely considered to be the greatest Star Wars movie of all time.

The official poster comes to us from renowned Star Wars and Marvel artist Matt Ferguson, and spotlights several of the most memorable moments from the film, including our first look at the returning Darth Vader in his Meditation Chamber, the AT-AT assault on the Hoth rebel base, and that first confrontation between Luke Skywalker and Vader which lead to the now iconic "no, I am your father" reveal.

"Happy 40th birthday #TheEmpireStrikesBack!," said Ferguson over Twitter. "Here's my new official one sheet poster for the film. It was SUCH a pleasure & an honour making this #StarWars art for Lucasfilm and Disney. I should be able to share more next week as well."

USA Today has also shared some rare behind-the-scenes photos from the middle film in the original Star Wars trilogy, featuring Mark Hamill (Luke), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), and the late Carrie Fisher (Leia).
