Force Friday has been an unprecedented success with Star Wars fans the world over getting their first look at brand new merchandise for the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In addition, we also get an exciting look at the upcoming film through the release of three new posters.
The overall theme for the posters is the rise of the First Order which, according to rumour, is a splinter group of the Empire that has come to power after the demise of Darth Vader.
While the first has a line of assembled Stormtroopers, the second features new antagonist Kylo Ren armed with his crossguard lightsaber. The final poster again places Ren at the centre but also brings into focus this saga’s three new adventurers: Stormtrooper Finn (John Boyega), scavenger Rey (Daisy Ridley), and resistance pilot Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), along with some of our other favorite characters including C3-PO and R2D2.
Set thirty years after the end of The Return of The Jedi, this new installment of the Star Wars franchise will follow a trio of new leads as they have to contend with a dark new threat to the force.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set to be the biggest movie of the year, and will be released on December 17.
