Announcement Trailer for 1983's Revenge of the Jedi
The Academy Film Archive (part of the group that does the Oscars) has posted this teaser trailer of sorts that apparently was shown in May 1982 before a double feature of Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back in the UK. It is likely the first teaser for Return of the Jedi since it still used the Revenge of the Jedi title. No footage was shown so likely this was made even before principle photography had begun. Any case it makes for an interesting piece of Star Wars history.
