It's Here - Official Poster for 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Revealed
There has been an awakening… Disney/Lucasfilm have revealed the first official poster for J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a continuation of the sci-fi saga that George Lucas started in 1977. This poster is very reminiscent of all the other official artwork for the two original trilogies, and isn't designed by Drew Struzan, however I hope we'll see more Struzan work soon. In the meantime, this is spectacular poster that captures both the dark side and the light side. John Boyega stars as Finn, along with Daisy Ridley as Rey, and Adam Driver as Kylo Ren - these three are featured prominently. Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher also show up, along with Chewie, Poe Dameron & Captain Phasma. Watch the new trailer right here.
Here's the official poster art for J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens, revealed by Lucasfilm:
Update - watch this quick 10-second tease of footage from the next trailer before it arrives tomorrow.
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.

Believe me it's hard lol but I managed to watch Interstellar x Age of Ultron unspoiled only watching the first teaser trailers. Just have to run out screenings whenever the trailer comes on ha, x dodging tv spots are easy.

Its cool. I would have loved them to try a new concept and not the same old lets put everyone and everything into one poster. And the new DS confirms one of my biggest fears that Ep7 has a lot of similarities to new hope. Not like that's bad thing. We'll see.

Neat. Very formulaic, down to the blue-orange color palette, but neat nonetheless. Excited for the trailer.

Everything about this movie just seems so... safe. From the choice of director, to the story points, and now with the marketing. To really get creative in a meaningful way, you have to take some risks and push the limits, at least a little. This film is seriously at risk of drowning in a sea of vanilla flavored nostalgia. They had a huge blank check to do ANYTHING and they came up with Death Star #3?

That's like saying the next Star Trek movie shouldn't have an Enterprise...

Do we had Death Star in Prequels? Aswer is no. Only the plans. Prequels had unique,different story. This bullshit named "The Force Awakens" and the whole upcoming trilogy is a simple Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V from Episodes IV-VI.

Anyone else notice how Rey's staff lines up with Kylo Ren's lightsabre, almost as if she's holding Darth Maul's double lightsaber? Did JJ give something away while trying to be sneaky?

Great trailer. Must have watched it ten times after it premiered at half time. Couldn't get first night tickets though. As soon as my buddy accessed the ticket site only first row was available in IMAX. Definitely not going to see it like that. Got Friday afternoon tickets instead. I'll have to play a little hookie from work which is funny since I did the same back in high school the day Phantom Menace premiered.
