'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Poster Unveiled Ahead of New Trailer
Star Wars: The Last Jedi has a little treat ahead of Monday night's new trailer.
Director Rian Johnson stopped by Twitter's #WhatsHappening show to unveil a new poster for the film, which has the late Carrie Fisher's Leia at the forefront.
"The tricky thing with a poster like this is when you have to fit this many folks on it. How do you do that in a way that is elegant?" said Johnson, who added that he particularly liked that the late actress was front and center, wearing his favorite Leia costume from the film. "I wanted her to just look fabulous in this movie."
The filmmaker said the new Last Jedi trailer will air during halftime on ESPN's Monday Night Football.
Disney and Lucasfilm are releasing Star Wars: The Last Jedi on Dec. 15. Here's a closer look at the poster:
