First Set of Character Posters Arrive for 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

Star Wars Character Posters

This scoundrel returns December 18th. And so does Leia. Plus we get to meet a young, new soon-to-be Jedi, another dark side guy, and a few more others the new Star Wars hits theaters in December. A set of five new character posters have debuted online for Lucasfilm's Star Wars: The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams. The main five posters are for the main five characters - Han and Leia, played by Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, of course. Plus the new ones: John Boyega as Finn, Daisy Ridley as Rey, and Adam Driver (under mask) as Kylo Ren. I really love these designs - only one eye showing, the other half of their face covered up by their weapon of choice - they send a very powerful message. Only six more weeks to go.

Here's the first set of five character posters for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, tip via The Film Stage:

Star Wars Character Poster - Finn

Star Wars Character Poster - Rey

Star Wars Character Poster - Kylo Ren

Star Wars Character Poster - Han Solo

Star Wars Character Poster - Leia

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, with Rian Johnson and Colin Trevorrow lined up to direct. Disney, after acquiring Lucasfilm in 2012, will release Star Wars: The Force Awakens in theaters worldwide on December 18th.

EggRoll on Nov 4, 2015


i see what you did there

Ryan on Nov 4, 2015


Well played, sir..... well played.

EmagSamurai on Nov 4, 2015


Kilo's saber is so F***ing cool,

Ryan on Nov 4, 2015


Damn Harrison! Your nose is so crooked. Looks like Han Solo got punched one too many times.

TheOct8pus on Nov 4, 2015


Uh oh........I'm starting to think Leiah had an affair with Lando.

Cyberdine on Nov 4, 2015


I'm more inclined to think Rey = Han & Leia's kid (meaning Force sensitive but not Jedi-levels), and Finn is Luke's kid by a one-night-stand. Or Lando's kid. Lando had some good hunches too, so could be spun that he was a minor F-sensitive.

Right now millions of nerds are uploading theories about why everybody but Leia has one eye covered.......

Solid Dick on Nov 4, 2015


Ay ay ay, fine. Full set from today, but yes more are coming. And Leia's eye is sorta covered by that blue light thing. But yes, I'm sure theories are being written.

Alex Billington on Nov 4, 2015


her eye is covered, by that line on a computer panel, only difference is you can see thru it.

Big Mike on Nov 5, 2015


Oh ok........ Jesus tap dancing christ. Only on the internet man. Only on the internet. I need a drink.....

Solid Dick on Nov 5, 2015


Not really on topic but its Star Wars, so Im going to comment here. I saw this commercial for Star Wars....I shit you not, Star War Make up. From like cover girl. Left me confused and honestly a little put off, I mean yeh its Star Wars, but the commercialization is way over board this time around. Posters look cool.

Higgens on Nov 4, 2015


Haha!! Maybe she's born with it....maybe it's Midichloreans...

TheOct8pus on Nov 4, 2015


Way overboard? You clearly didn't grow up in the early 80s.

EggRoll on Nov 4, 2015


I did, in fact, grow up in the 80s. And lived through the marketing blitz of the prequel trilogy, this is worse. I mean, lol Star Wars makeup.

Higgens on Nov 4, 2015


This isn't even close...hence my original point.

EggRoll on Nov 5, 2015


Yeah, there was Star Wars everything back in the late 70's into the 80's. You could get just about anything SW back then...

Bl00dwerK on Nov 5, 2015


Show me the vintage SW makeup.

Higgens on Nov 5, 2015


I don't know if there was makeup or not, but there wasn't much of anything you couldn't get with Star Wars on it. The products aren't anymore "overboard" now than they were back then. Times change and marketing changes along with them. Just because you see something you may have not seen back then doesn't make it worse...

Bl00dwerK on Nov 7, 2015


Marketing as a whole is worse now than it was, more in your face. It permeates every thing now. Trying to say marketing isnt worse now is silly. Evrything is marketed harder now and Star Wars is a giant cash cow that Disney know how to milk. You are welcome to disagree. If I had more time I am quite sure I could prove it objectively.

Higgens on Nov 8, 2015


I question why you are even arguing this with me. I never said it wasnt a huge push in the 70/80s, I said its overboard NOW. That has no relation or context to previous releases.

Higgens on Nov 5, 2015


I don't believe the fool did grow up in the 80's...

Bl00dwerK on Nov 7, 2015


Oh c'mon! These are pure crap. Don't tell me you seriously liked 'em. They look like a Nickelodeon flick.

Oriyan J. Ovadia on Nov 4, 2015


Really? Aw. :/ What would you do instead? What kind of posters do you want to see? (Besides Struzan of course.)

Alex Billington on Nov 4, 2015


Alex, honestly, the one that Struzar did was his worst in the whole series.

capitandelespacio on Nov 6, 2015


Then I still ask my question - what kind of posters do you want to see if not the ones we've seen so far?

Alex Billington on Nov 6, 2015


I'm not complaining, just saying. And these look ok, I guess ^^ Not every poster we are going to see is going to be a piece of art.

capitandelespacio on Nov 6, 2015


These are actually pretty awesome.

EggRoll on Nov 4, 2015


Yikes I kinda don't like them...

Xerxexx on Nov 4, 2015



Big Mike on Nov 5, 2015


why? they are really quite boring.

Xerxexx on Nov 5, 2015



capitandelespacio on Nov 6, 2015


I see you Leah...

DAVIDPD on Nov 4, 2015


Marketing team for The Force Awakens. Go look at the original promo posters for the original Star Wars trilogy. Produce better ones

redskulllives on Nov 4, 2015


What do you do for a living? McDonalds? If you're so good then get in there and show us what you got.

Big Mike on Nov 5, 2015


Big mike who are you defending? The c0ck meat sandwich that the media feeds down your slutty throat?

redskulllives on Nov 13, 2015


I got a cock meat sandwich for you.

redskulllives on Mar 20, 2016


Instead of degrading all in one comb stroke I`d rather look at them separately. Rey´s poster is nice. Nicely lit, superb colours and she's got an expression that looks a combination of holding back tears and angry. Finn and Kylo´s pics just doesn't add anything as I have no relation to them, and their faces doesn't "give" anything. Han and Leias posters are okey...they look a bit too worried in my opinion, but maybe they have reason to be.. Leias poster has strange colours that doesnt give me a SW feel, but thats nit picking. All in all..adequate posters. Would be cooler with some action shots maybe?

Fairly lame, and what's with all the "covering one eye" thing that goes on in the media lately? Et tu, Star Wars?

cuckoozey on Nov 5, 2015

43're fairly lame.

EggRoll on Nov 5, 2015


case in point

Big Mike on Nov 5, 2015


So, we're not allowed to air dissent in here anymore? Gotcha, strike what I wrote before - these posters are absolutely brillllliant.

cuckoozey on Nov 5, 2015


LMAO at the people who don't like these. These are 10x better than most of the crap out there. People will troll anything. Week in and week out the same clowns here hate on every article that gets posted. Joyless lot.

EggRoll on Nov 5, 2015


People with miserable lives get on the internet and complain about everything.

Big Mike on Nov 5, 2015


What's far worse is when people complain about people complaining.

cuckoozey on Nov 5, 2015


Cool, I guess. I never really know what to think about all the posters, anyway...
