New ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Poster Reveals a Badass Death Star

     October 18, 2015

star-wars-force-awakens-poster-sliceAt long last, Disney has released a new Star Wars: The Force Awakens poster! We got a bit of a teaser back in August when the studio unveiled the Drew Struzan poster, but the long-await official one-sheet has finally dropped, and it looks exactly right. There’s nothing revolutionary going on here, but the Force Awakens poster fits right in in the pantheon of Star Wars imagery (which you can review below).

Check out the poster below and come back tomorrow to see the new trailer, or get a preview in the new teasers.  The film opens December 18th and stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendolyn Christie, Domhnall Gleeson, Andy Serkis, and Max Von Sydow.

The poster doesn’t give a whole lot away, but there are some choice reveals. Most noticeably, check out that badass Death Star-looking spacecraft looming in the top right, equipped with a giant lens or cannon of some kind. There’s some kind of new alien creature hanging out alongside R2-D2 and C-3PO — could that  be Maz Kanata, the alien creature voiced by Lupita Nyong’o? We also get our first look at Princess Leia, tucked in just behind Han Solo, rocking a new, but still huge hairstyle. Luke remains a mystery, and there’s no sight of him on the poster, so I wouldn’t bank on seeing him in tomorrow’s trailer.
