Star Wars The Force Awakens - Poster
Star Wars The Force Awakens - Poster ©2015 Lucasfilm

The new poster above for Star Wars The Force Awakens was released yesterday and shows many of the new and old characters. For those missing we will still have to wait!

At the top we have Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) with the main character Rey (Daisy Ridley) with a death star behind. Just below to the right we have Finn (John Bodega) with a nice blue lightsaber. In the centre below we can see the classic characters of Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Leia (Carrie Fisher). Their much smaller size, we assume, reflects lesser significance to their role in the overall film.

Later tonight we are promised the release of a new trailer…
