Last week, we reported that Disney and LucasFilm will debut the first teaser poster for Star Wars: The Force Awakens during the opening kickoff event of Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California, which runs from April 16 through April 19. Director J.J. Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy were on hand to present this one-sheet to the fans assembled at the Anaheim Convention Center, and now everyone else can check out the poster for themselves. The director and producer also debuted the first trailer for this highly-anticipated movie, which will be attached to prints of Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1.
Way back in May 2014, we reported that poster artist Drew Struzan, who created the posters for all six Star Wars movies, was coming out of retirement to craft the one-sheet for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. That report was never confirmed, though, and this latest poster is just the logo that we've seen before. In addition to this poster, Disney and LucasFilm also debuted new behind-the-scenes photos, which you can check out below as well..
J.J. Abrams directs Star Wars: The Force Awakens from a script he co-wrote with Lawrence Kasdan. Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) reprise their roles from the original trilogy, along with new cast members John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong'o and Max von Sydow. Take a look at the poster and cast photos for Star Wars: The Force Awakens below, and stay tuned for more details, photos and videos as we get closer to the December 18 release date.
