The First Order on New Banners for 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

It's Star Wars mania! Today is "Force Friday" and Lucasfilm has announced/launched toys and goodies and tons of new items for the fans to go crazy over. Found amidst all the buzz and reveals are three new promo banners for Star Wars: The Force Awakens – full-size "quads" (like from the UK), rather than actual posters. Which makes me believe these may just be promo banners or purchasable posters more than official art (plus, there has to be more coming from Drew Struzan). That said, it's very cool to see more imagery. The First Order stormtroopers, a sleek shot of Kylo Ren, and a nice combination of everything in the movie.
Here's the new promo banner for J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens. How excited are you?
Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, continuing the beloved original trilogy about Luke, Leia, Han & Chewie that ended in 1983, is directed by J.J. Abrams, of the films Mission: Impossible 3, Star Trek, Super 8 and Star Trek Into Darkness. The screenplay is written by Lawrence Kasdan (Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Return of the Jedi, The Big Chill, The Bodyguard) and J.J. Abrams, with Kathleen Kennedy from Lucasfilm producing. This debut is the beginning of a brand new saga, with another trilogy planned for this storyline, not to mention other standalone movies in this universe. Disney, after acquiring Lucasfilm, will release Star Wars: The Force Awakens in theaters worldwide on December 18th, 2015.
