The Force is really starting to wipe the sleep crust from its eyes as it continues to pull the blankets down and arise from its 30 year slumber. Last night, the world watched in awe as the third and final Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer was unleashed. It was an emotional experience for millions who have been obsessed with watching it over and over again. Now, we get the next in what will be a long line of promotional materials released for the movie. And this one is pretty cool! Not only that, it can be yours if you are lucky enough!
As part of their "Star Wars Sundays" promotion, each Sunday, from December 20 to January 10, guests who purchase a ticket to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens at AMC theaters will receive an AMC-exclusive Star Wars print from artist Dan Mumford with a new poster set to be revealed every week. Today, we have a look at the very first poster in this exciting series. And it features the most important girl in the galaxy, and her droid companion.
On Sunday, we got our first look at the official theatrical poster for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It showcased an awakening of the dark side...And the light. And it includes almost all of the major characters from this new film in the Star Wars saga, except for Luke Skywalker. Now, we get a more character specific poster featuring Daisy Ridley's Rey. She stands on the hillside along with her droid companion BB-8. In the distance, set against the rising sun of Jakku is a downed Star Destroyer. We also get to see X-Wings and TIE-Fighters buried in the sand drifts from a long-ago battle. It helps set the scene nicely for what will play out on this barren planet.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens tickets went on sale last night, and managed to crash nearly every single website offering a pre-sale.
