With D23 here, the Star Wars news is rolling in thick and fast. After an astounding behind the scenes look at The Last Jedi, the official Star Wars Twitter account released teaser posters for Episode VIII. They’re instantly iconic and very, very cool. Well done, Lucasfilm PR. Well done.
Showcasing our main cast both old and new in red, the posters have an ominous yet classic look to them and are incredibly pleasing to the eye. General Leia’s looking regal as hell in a high-collared cape, Luke’s rocking a classic Jedi cloak, Finn’s STILL WEARING POE’S JACKET *eye emoji*, Poe’s rocking an entirely new ensemble with a Rebel insignia on the arm, Kylo’s still channeling baby Vader, and Rey’s looking like she very may well be the Last Jedi in a cloak incredibly reminiscent of both Luke and Obi-Wan Kenobi.So far Lucasfilm has released six posters and we, of course, have collected them for your viewing pleasure.
The red hue instantly speaks to the Dark Side, so could our beloved space heroes be struggling to find balance in the Force in this newest installment of the franchise? What’s that in Luke’s hand? Could it be his father’s lightsaber, the very one which Rey returned to him on Atch-to at the end of The Force Awakens?
Check out the rest of the the character posters in our gallery below and let us know what you think. Too minimal? Effortlessly cool? Do you just want to know WHERE THE HELL IS KELLY MARIE TRAN’S POSTER? Jump in the comments and let us know!
