After the release of the last full-length trailer for The Force Awakens, the Star Wars marketing machine is in its final throes at the behest of director J.J. Abrams, who has confirmed no more teasers will arrive before the movie opens. Thankfully, a massive treat arrived online today in the shape of five new character posters.
Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Leia (Carrie Fisher), and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) are the quintet given their own character-centric one-sheets. Each holds their signature weapon except for Leia, who according to StarWars.com "confidently peers through a data screen." Like the previous poster that dropped, they're stylish teasers as opposed to ripe spoiler-heavy pieces of artwork. Check 'em out above.
One omission from this line-up adds further fuel to a fire started by Abrams himself a few weeks back. Galaxy golden boy Luke Skywalker has so far been absent in all marketing materials. This deliberate move is an attempt to keep spoilers at a minimum, which is, in itself a bit revealing about Skywalker's current situation. If he were the same Jedi we once knew, surely we'd have seen him by now? Find out when Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in the UK on December 17 and the US on December 18.
