Star Wars Celebration marks its 40th anniversary with a poster of old and new characters

Star Wars posters always knock it out of the park and into a galaxy far, far away and this poster – designed for April’s Star Wars Celebration event and marking the franchise’s 40th anniversary – is no exception.

While you patiently (or impatiently) wait for that pesky Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer to drop, take in every last beautiful sketch of the poster below, as the art combines the very best of the Original Trilogy, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and, yes, even the prequels.

The Star Wars Celebration takes place April 13-16 in Orlando – and kicks off with a 40th anniversary panel.

Are they any glaring omissions from the poster? Should Star Wars: Rogue One get a spot? Or do you feel really strongly about Darth Maul or (whisper it) Jar Jar’s absence? Let us know in the comments!

I'm the Entertainment Writer here at GamesRadar+, focusing on news, features, and interviews with some of the biggest names in film and TV. On-site, you'll find me marveling at Marvel and providing analysis and room temperature takes on the newest films, Star Wars and, of course, anime. Outside of GR, I love getting lost in a good 100-hour JRPG, Warzone, and kicking back on the (virtual) field with Football Manager. My work has also been featured in OPM, FourFourTwo, and Game Revolution.
