One quick glance at our most recent news section aught to tell you one thing. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is all anyone cares about. Seriously. It's big business. And the hits never stop coming. Following a whole bunch of recent news, we get two more posters today, featuring two of the main trio that make up this sequel's new heroes.
First up, we get the official Poe Dameron character poster. It shows Oscar Isaac in his X-Wing uniform. Poe Dameron is a human male who serves as a pilot in the Resistance approximately thirty years after the Battle of Endor. A leader in the Resistance's fight against the First Order and a member of Black Squadron, he flies under the callsign of Black Leader while commanding a squadron of T-70 X-wing fighters in the company of his loyal astromech droid, BB-8.
The second image debuting today is actually a motion poster of a previously released banner featuring John Boyega as Finn. He is seen here in his Resistance jacket wielding the blue lightsaber that once belonged to Luke Skywalker. Finn is a human male who served as a stormtrooper (designation FN-2187) in the First Order approximately thirty years after the Battle of Endor. He becomes stranded on the desert planet of Jakku. And at one point, he will use the lightsaber that had once belonged to Jedi Knights Anakin Skywalker and Luke Skywalker. As a stormtrooper, Finn was a trained warrior, but struggled to escape his past. He gets plunged into an adventure as his conscience guides him to a heroic path. He eventually becomes engaged in a confrontation with Kylo Ren, an ally of the First Order, in a snowy forest.
The Star Wars galaxy is a dangerous place. Epic Battles. Remote worlds. Strange creatures. And deadly threats at each turn. A long time ago a group of heroes banded together to save the galaxy from an Evil Empire. A dark new threat promises to destroy everything they've fought for. Now it's time for a new generation of heroes. Rey, a scavenger searching for answers. And Finn, a rogue Stormtrooper looking for something to fight for.
