What an exciting day to be a Star Wars fan!
First we found out that Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow has signed on to helm Episode IX. Then it was announced that a galaxy far, far away would have a larger presence at the Disney theme parks in both Florida and California as part of the largest single-themed land expansion to date. That news was immediately followed by the release of the first Star Wars: Rogue One cast picture, along with additional cast and crew revelations. And now, to round things off, we’ve got a brand new poster for Star Wars: The Force Awakens coming out of the D23 Expo! Check it out below:
The poster was created by Star Wars veteran Drew Struzan, who has drawn them for every installment in the franchise to date, as well as for the Indiana Jones films. It was specifically designed for D23, so it’s important to note that this is not the official theatrical one. Still, it does contain a lot of things worth geeking out over, the biggest of which may be the fact that Finn (John Boyega) is wielding Anakin Skywalker’s old lightsaber.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18, 2015.
