Following hot on the heels of the first ever trailer for Rian Johnson's Star Wars Episode VIII The Last Jedi comes the revelation of the movies first official movie poster. The imagery is a simpler nod to the poster for Episode IV A New Hope in which Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) held a lightsaber above his head. In this poster, it is instead the mysterious Rey (Daisy Ridley) adopting the heroic pose with close-ups of Luke and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) separated by the beam of the iconic weapon...
The pure nostalgia vibe from this poster should prove a favorite for fans of the original trilogy, as Luke Skywalkers iconic heroic pose, while never used in the actual movie was later adopted by hit TV cartoon series' such as Master of the Universe and Thundercats.
