Entertainment Weekly’s new Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ posters show the main cast at the ready, and Harrison Ford is still able to pull off Han Solo’s famous pose perfectly.
With Star Wars: The Force Awakens promotion ramping up, we’ve been hearing and seeing a lot of information about the movie that seems destined to be the biggest hit of the year. Check out the new shots of the film’s characters below:
Han Solo’s pose is something everyone should remember, even if you weren’t a child of the ’70s, as it has become an iconic shot of the popular character. It’s actually pretty crazy to see Harrison Ford in such a prominent role in The Force Awakens, and it’ll be even more interesting to find out why Luke hasn’t been seen as much.
In the issue, Ford talks about the character, saying, “No, there’s not an abandoning of the character. He does not aspire to the position of Obi-‘Ben’ Kenobi, nor do I aspire to be some New Age Alec Guinness. His development is consistent with the character, and there are emotional elements which have occasioned his growth. We spend a lot more time [in the movie] on his failure to master basic skills, like accounting. And accounting for his own behavior. There’s a lot of the rogue still left in Solo. Some things don’t change.”
Will Luke Skywalker have a bigger role than we’ve been led to believe? It’s interesting that he hasn’t been in many of the trailers and the recent TV spots for the film. EW has also released some new images from set, which feature looks at some of the new characters.
Expect to see loads of promotion for the upcoming film, as Star Wars: The Force Awakens will hit theaters December 18, 2015.
