The beautiful new "Star Wars" poster features women and we are loving every bit of it
What we’re really excited about though, is the combination of characters from both Force Awakens and Rogue One. In particular, the world’s favorite new ass-kicking leads, Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones).
Since both these films are led by women actors (as MTV pointed out, for the first time in 40 years), it should be no surprise that they are the main figures in this poster. In fact, it’s also worth noting that this is probably the first time women (that’s plural) have been featured together in a major Star Wars poster.
Other cool things to note in this poster are Luke Skywalker’s first official appearance in promotional materials for the new films (Wooooo!), and these closer looks at the Death Troopers and a Shoretrooper we saw briefly in the Rogue One trailer.
There’s so much awesome going on this poster, we could spend days breaking it down! And we just might.
