At the time of this post, it will be just under 60 Days before the official release of what is easily the most highly anticipated movie in the past few years, the seventh Star Wars film. ‘Force Frenzy’ is just about tethering on the edge. Yesterday, Disney released the first Official Poster for the new film.
Probably one of the biggest surprise other than it’s not a design by long-term Star Wars poster artist Drew Struzan was the absence of Luke Skywalker (played by Mark Hamill) from the print. Tickets starting from 7:00pm December 17 show go on sale NOW with many theatrical locations having special giveaways for the early arrivals.
As promised, the New Star Wars trailer.
Disney released a complete list of all the premiere night events and exclusive giveaways:
