You’ll Definitely Want to Hang the First ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Poster On Your Wall
If all you Star Wars fans are still alive out there, congrats for surviving one of the most exciting Fridays in ages! The cast of Star Wars: The Last Jedi showed up at Star Wars Celebration Orlando this afternoon and unloaded a galaxy full of exciting reveals.
We got to see the very first teaser trailer (admit it, you’ve already watched it six times), a slew of new character details and photos. Director Rian Johnson also unveiled a look at the very first poster, and it’s a beauty.
The red and white one sheet is the kind of poster you’ll want to frame and show off on your wall. It evokes the original A New Hope poster, only this time Daisy Ridley‘s Rey holds a lightsaber towards the sky as a beam of light shines upward. That beam of light splits the top of the poster in two, between light and dark, Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren. When Mark Hamill‘s Luke asks Rey what she sees in the new trailer, she says, “Light… darkness… a balance.” Is Rey the balance to hold it all together? Or perhaps, the last Jedi? I have no clue because none of us will know the answers for another eight months!
The new film, which has yet to get an official synopsis, picks up right after the end of The Force Awakens when Ridley’s Rey arrived on an island to discover Hamill’s Luke. The Last Jedi also features the return of John Boyega’s Finn, Oscar Isaac‘s Poe, Carrie Fisher’s General Leia Organa, Adam Driver‘s Kylo Ren, plus newcomer Kelly Marie Tran as Rose. Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Lupita Nyong’o, and Andy Serkis will also reprise their characters while Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro appear in mystery roles. The Last Jedi arrives in theaters on December 15.
