The First Teaser

This was the first poster released. Before there were trailers or photos or any other imagery from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Lucasfilm showed off the title treatment, aka logo, for the film.

Some were unimpressed by its pedestrian look, but here's why it looks the way it does: the typeface used for "The Force Awakens" (which is called ITC Serif Gothic) is the same font used on the original Star Wars poster back in 1977. It's no secret how keen J.J. Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy are to link The Force Awakens to the original trilogy, and this little typography nod is just one more way of bridging that thirty-year gap.

The Theatrical Poster

The final theatrical poster is the one displayed at theaters while The Force Awakens plays. It's everything fans hoped for: a stuffed-to-the-gills poster with fantastic composition, and an homage to the Drew Struzan posters of yesteryear.

Yet its bold color choices -- note the red-to-orange-to-blue spectrum when you look at the poster whole -- and its photo-realistic imagery suggest a modern vibe, aka new beginning for the franchise.

When Disney held its annual D23 Expo event in Anaheim in August, attendees were given this exclusive promotional poster featuring Rey, Finn, Kylo Ren, and Han Solo. The poster's art was painted by the legendary Drew Struzan.

If you're looking to own one, copies can usually be found for sale on eBay. But since it was an exclusive, you should expect high prices.

Han Solo Poster

Star Wars: The Force Awakens - Han Solo poster. Lucasfilm, Ltd.

A recurring motif in these character posters is an object important to each character that's overlaid atop their right eye. Harrison Ford looks like he's still got it as Han Solo in this poster focused on him and his trusty blaster.

General Leia Poster

The Princess-turned-General got her own poster with what looks like holographic display data over one eye. This appears to be the Resistance command center on the planet D'Qar, where General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) spends most of her time in the film.

Daisy Ridley shows us a close-up of her fighting staff in this character-centric poster. She appears steely-eyed and ready to rumble.

That's clearly her adopted homeworld of Jakku in the background. But why was she left there by her family when she was just four years old? And who is her family, anyway?

John Boyega takes the spotlight on this poster, with a blue lightsaber blade in front of his eye. Behind him appears to be the burning village seen in the trailers.

Kylo Ren Poster

So what is the deal with Kylo Ren's lightsaber, anyway? Why is it all wild and spitty? (Does he wear the mask to protect himself from the sparks?) We know he built the lightsaber himself, so did he do a sloppy job with it, or what?

Actor Adam Driver is behind that very distinctive mask, ready to finish what his grandfather, Darth Vader, started.

Poe Dameron Poster

Moving to secondary characters, Lucasfilm abandoned the covered-eye motif and went for more straightforward action poses. This one finds Oscar Isaac's hotshot X-Wing pilot Poe Dameron scarred but ready for action.
