Yes, there is not a Luke Skywalker poster in the lot, but nonetheless Lucasfilm Ltd. and Disney have unveiled a new crop of Force Awakens posters. Now we have even more movie posters to cover our walls. Below the press release we give you our take on this latest batch of Force Awakens marketing.

Press Release: Star Wars: The Force Awakens is almost here — and now you can get an up-close look at the film’s classic and new characters.

The official character posters for Rey, Leia, Kylo Ren, Han Solo, and Finn were revealed today, featuring powerful portraits and a striking design motif. Rey holds her staff defiantly; Leia confidently peers through a data screen; Kylo Ren’s lightsaber crackles; a grim Han Solo holds his blaster at the ready; and Finn looks stoic with a blue-bladed Jedi weapon.

Carrie Fisher, Daisy Ridley, and John Boyega each revealed their own posters via Twitter and Instagram. Take a look at their posts and check out the full posters below!

The Sci-Fi Movie Page’s take on the new character posters!

Finn
John Boyega really sells this look. He has already endeared himself to the fan base, this poster backs up the power of the force.

Han Solo
Harrison Ford looks more like Clint Eastwood, but to be honest, it is great to see our favorite Space Pirate back in the swing of things.

Kylo Ren
A lot rides on Kylo Ren. Will he be the new Darth Vader, in that he will be both scary and tragic? Let us hope he is not another one shot Sith, as was Darth Maul.

Leia
Carrie Fisher looks incredible! Nuff said.

Rey
After seeing this poster, does anyone else think Daisy Ridley’s Rey is going to ignite a lightsaber on either end of her staff?

In my career as a writer, I have made Doctor Who giggle, asked Ahsoka Tano what underwear she was wearing, and spoke with a Raptor from Jurassic Park.
