UPDATED: New footage in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer teases. Hit the jump below to check out the video.
Ahead of tomorrow’s new trailer, Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Pictures have released the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens poster, and it looks exactly right.
It’s pretty great, pays homage to the past Star Wars posters, encompassing a more modern vibe. The Force is strong with this poster. Sadly, the Force Awakens artwork still tells us absolutely nothing about the movie. Check it out.
I like it a lot, but I want to see Luke, not a third Death Star. Um, looks like Starkiller Base is built into the planet. I bet we get a very good look at it in the new trailer which will drop tomorrow during half time for ESPN’s Monday Night Football. Here’s the full press release below (via Collider).
