JJ Abrams and Co. released the theatrical poster for their forthcoming Star Wars film The Force Awakens yesterday, and it is downright beautiful. But where’s Luke?
New characters Poe Dameron, Kylo Ren, Rey, Finn, Captain Phasma, Maz Kanataand and BB-8, are featured as well as a few from the old guard: Princess Leia, Han and Chewie, R2-D2, and C3PO. Also rumors of a super, Death Star-esque weapon seem to be accurate. But where’s Ser Skywalker? Is JJ just playing with us to drum up even more fervor around Luke’s appearance in the film? Or is his absence meant to foreshadow something potentially ominous? I suppose we will have to wait until Dec.18th (the release date) to find out.
Moreover, there will be a new Force Awakens trailer released during the Monday Night Football broadcast tonight. Will we finally see Luke? Probably not.
