Each fall before the May release of a Star Wars film, fans have two things on their mind: teaser poster and teaser trailer. Now, the first of these wish-list items is a reality, as starwars.com reveals the striking new teaser poster for Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.

Next week, the teaser poster and banner for Episode III will start appearing in movie theaters in North America and elsewhere. This bold design is now available on exclusive collectibles from StarWarsShop.com. For the first time ever, Lucasfilm is making available to fans a double-sided printing of the poster, the exact same format that's shipping to theaters. The poster image is also available on a mug and a T-shirt. To check out these products, visit StarWarsShop.com here.

As a first visual representation of a film to a broad audience, a teaser poster must efficiently convey the main spirit and theme of a film, but leave the full depth of characters and relationships for the release poster several months later.

Like the teaser posters for The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones, this one features Anakin Skywalker. Hayden Christensen is depicted as the heroic Jedi warrior, with the encroaching dark cloud of his future represented by his flowing cloak hinting at the Dark Lord to come. It is a darker incarnation of the shadow that followed him as a young boy in the Episode I teaser poster, with the terrifying features of Darth Vader more visible than ever before.
