Get ready to have your mind blown. Star Wars Celebration is coming up this April and the new poster combining all of your favorite Star Wars characters is here for the event. That’s right. The Force is especially strong this year because it’s the 40th anniversary of A New Hope, which kicked off all of our future Star Wars obsessions in 1977.

Since this year marks the 40th anniversary of the beginning of the Star Wars franchise, it’s fitting that the poster for Star Wars Celebration combines all of the main characters we’ve met over the past 40 years.

Everyone from our favorite droids like R2-D2 and BB-8 to Rey to Leia to Anakin and Yoda are featured on the poster without it even feeling the least bit overwhelming. Since all of the trilogies are tied together, it makes sense for the poster to seamlessly display everyone. At second glance, you’ll probably notice that the original trilogy occupies the center of the poster while the prequels occupy the top and the stars of the current trilogy are more towards the bottom. Oh, and Darth Vader looms over them all appropriately.

Star Wars Celebration will take place in Orlando, Florida, in April of 2017 and will hopefully include the release of footage or a trailer from the upcoming film The Last Jedi whose title was announced last month.

The Last Jedi will hit theaters on December 15th, 2017, and is the second film in the current series, taking place after The Force Awakens. Don’t get confused by the spin-offs like Rogue One and the upcoming Han Solo film, which are not part of the current trilogy even though they take place in the Star Wars Universe. Yeah, it can be overwhelming! Or as Yoda might say: So many movies, there are.
