The Force Awakens poster and new set photos


Iconic movie poster artist, Drew Struzan has created a new poster for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which confirms previous rumors about some of the new cast members.

At the Disney's D23 Expo this week, fans were treated to a new The Force Awakens teaser in the form of a poster from Drew Struzan, the artist behind the official posters for all six Star Wars films. 

Struzan, who had previously retired, has an impressive list of credits to his name, including the iconic movie posters for Indiana JonesBack to the Future, and The Goonies, and over 150 other movies.

Although sources at Disney have stated that the poster seen at D23 is not the final The Force Awakens movie poster, it certainly provides a glimpse of what we can expect.

The poster, which features an aged Han Solo, alongside newcomers Rey and Finn, also shows Kylo Renn, TIE fighters, a moisture farm, and curiously three suns in the background.

The big new reveal you can take from the poster is the fact that Finn is welding a lightsaber; which, although difficult to see in the poster, appears to be Anakin Skywalker's original lightsaber which was lost by Luke in The Empire Strikes Back. It had already been confirmed that this lightsaber would be one of the plot points of The Force Awakens, but this is the first real confirmation that one of the new characters will be carrying it.

Entertainment Weekly has also revealed exclusive new The Force Awakens photographs, which you should probably check out.
