These Epic 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Posters Show Han, Leia, and New Recruits Ready for Battle
By John Boone
Can you believe that in less than 50 days we’ll see the new Star Wars film?
It’s still mind-boggling, even after seeing the poster for The Force Awakens -- which is epic! -- and the latest trailer -- which is also epic! Though we have some questions... Now, the cast has revealed their character posters, with John Boyega hashtagging the poster of Finn, “#HeHasSomethingToFightFor.”
Ridley Instagrammed the poster and captioned it, “It is my very great honour to reveal this INSANELY EXCITING poster for The Force Awakens!!!! IT'S REY!!! Looking all freckly from the Jakku sun and as if there's an adventure to be had!!! AHHHH!” She added hashtag #ermagerdsoexciting.
Adam Driver as Kylo Ren:
Harrison Ford as Han Solo:
And Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia:
Fisher tweeted alongside the poster, “Oh Luke, don’t ask for the moon, we have the force.” (Sidebar: This may be a little sacrilegious to say, but her poster is a little Star Trek-y, no?)
Anyway, as we’ve come to expect, there’s no Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker.
In other Star Wars news, the cast is rallying around a terminally ill man whose dying wish is to see The Force Awakens. Daniel Fleetwood, 32, has a rare form of cancer and was given two months to live back in July, Click2Houston says.
Fleetwood has been a Star Wars fan since he was 8 or 9 years old and now, on hospice, says he worries that he won’t “make it” until the official release.
