With only a little more than 6 weeks before its theater premier, if you thought you had some time before the barrage of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ marketing overwhelms you, then think again! Today, some new character posters featuring Han Solo, Leia Organa, Rey, Finn and Kylo Ren have been released.
The posters may be a little disappointing considering the last one for the film had a lot more pizzazz, and while they are not on the level as classic Drew Struzan works, they do provide a close up look at some of the cast. Each poster seems to have a theme here with some sort of weapon obscuring part of their face. With Han it is his blaster, Rey has her staff and both Kylo Ren and Finn have their lightsabers. Everyone is holding something except for Leia who you have to wonder what her weapon is with those lights around her.
There are still a few more characters missing (Poe Dameron, Captain Plasma, General Hux to name a few) and I doubt we’ll be seeing Luke Skywalker anytime soon. I’m sure it won’t be long before their posters will be released and we’ll have it up once they are! Until then, what do you think of the ones we have so far?
And just in case you don’t have it saved on your calendar, ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ is set to drop in theaters December 18, 2015.
