Disney’s D23 Expo has managed to cram in an obscene amount of big cinematic reveals in a remarkably brief amount of time. (It’s a busy world out there and folks have things to do, so bless their hearts for knocking out so much at such a rapid pace.) Naturally, Star Wars got a fair amount of shine at the event complete with the debut of behind-the-scenes footage. Included in the D23 spoils (no proper trailer, mind you) was a freshly unveiled set of character posters to analyze and obsess over.
Leaning hard into a crimson palette, the new Star Wars: The Last Jedi posters feature Episode VIII‘s key players Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Rey (Daisy Ridley), General Leia Organa (the late Carrie Fisher), Finn (John Boyega) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) with partially obscured faces and the ability to raise more questions than it answers.
Considering The Last Jedi is arriving relatively soon by cultural event movie standards, it’s impressive that so much has been kept under wraps when it comes to the Rian Johnson directed project. Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15, 2017 and its Episode XI follow-up (directed by Book of Henry and Jurassic World helmer Colin Trevorrow) is due out in May 2019.
