The rumor about the release of the poster for the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been going on for a few days now. Yesterday it was revealed that Lucasfilm would be releasing the poster on Sunday, just one day ahead of the final trailer for the film. Coincidently, they are revealing the final trailer during ESPN’s airing of Monday Night Football. For those of you that do not know, ESPN is owned by Disney. Convenient, huh?
Some of you may remember the original poster, or teaser poster, that was revealed during Disney D23 Expo back in August. The final one, which will be the box art for the DVDs, shows most of the main characters but there is one notable exception – Luke Skywalker. J.J. Abrams has been sure to keep him hidden in the trailers even though we know he is in the movie and his voice is featured in the trailer.
Go ahead and dissect the poster to your heart’s content and wait patiently for the debut of the trailer tomorrow. Although, many people know that the trailer will be released online shortly after the airing on live television. Given my work schedule is probably when I will be checking it out. Go ahead and check out the poster below and leave your impressions in the comments.
