Analyzing The Force Awakens Theatrical Poster

Yesterday the Star Wars: The Force Awakens theatrical poster was released. Below is my analysis of the poster, but first here's a look at the poster itself.

Here are my thoughts based on the poster:

  • Darth Maul/Revan/Vader looks awesome. I'm hopeful they will develop him more like Vader and less like Maul. I don't want the big villain to get killed in movie one (seven?).
  • There's a new new Death Star?
  • John Boyega looks like a boss with a lightsaber.
  • Anybody seen Luke? Maybe Luke is (old man) kidnapped in this movie?
  • The new Stormtroopers look awesome but also kind of like they were designed by Nike.
  • So far Abrams and company are striking a good balance. It's familiar but new and intriguing.
