New Star Wars: The Last Jedi Poster Puts Skywalkers Front & Center

Just hours before the new Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer debuts, a new poster for the film has surfaced online. Like much of the marketing for The Last Jedi so far, the new poster is bathed in red, the color of the Dark Side. Luke Skywalker looms over Rey and his nephew Kylo Ren, both of whom wield their signature lightsabers, while Leia takes point in the center below them.

Rey and the Skywalkers aren't the only characters included on the poster. Chewbacca, General Hux, Rose, Finn, Poe, BB-8, C-3PO, R2D2, Phasma, BB-9E also appear surrounding the logo. Oddly, Poe is shown on the right side of the poster among the First Order characters.

Set on Crait, a salt-covered planet with deep red sands, the poster appears to be depicting a battle between the First Order and the Resistance.
