The first Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser poster was unveiled today at Star Wars Celebration. The film takes place 30 years after the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and introduces new characters played by John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, and Oscar Isaac alongside the return of Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher. The actual teaser poster is basically just the logo and a “December” reminder of the film’s release date, but the teaser poster that was handed out at Star Wars Celebration is even better. It harkens back to old school poster-making with a kind of throwback design, not unlike the trailer itself.
