New Drew Struzan Poster For Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Despite his claims to largely be retired, legendary poster artist Drew Struzan has been lured back to work for one of the film series he’s most famous for portraying on paper: Star Wars. Struzan has crafted a poster exclusively handed out to attendees at this weekend’s D23 event showing characters from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.


The image, featuring John Boyega’s Finn, Daisy Ridley’s Rey, Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren and a certain Mr. Harrison Ford (who was in attendance at the presentation for the film with his younger co-stars) as Han Solo, is only going to be used for this giveaway, though there is talk that Struzan will also be crafting the film’s official one sheet.

It’s certainly a classic Struzan, full of life and action and showing Finn with a lightsaber, while Solo carries his usual blaster. TIE Fighters and X-Wings scream across the image and above it all is Kylo Ren with his broadsaber.

While director J.J. Abrams and his cast, which also included Lupita Nyong’o, didn’t reveal any new footage (booo!), there was a little nugget to be gleaned, as Abrams let slip that the running time for the film is currently about 124 minutes. That could change, as the movie is still being edited, but it’ll probably be close to that when all is said and done.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be out on December 18.
