It looks like The Force Awakens will be promoted in the same spirit as the original Star Wars films!
At Disney's D23 convention on Sunday, the first ever poster for the upcoming blockbuster was revealed. Just like the iconic posters from the original trilogy, the new advertisement is painted!
The artwork was created by Drew Struzan, who's classic retro style has been featured in posters for the other films in the Star Wars series — and even the Indiana Jones films!

While this isn't the primary poster Struzan will make for the film, it still reveals a little bit about the plot!
John Boyega's character, Finn — seen in the trailer as a rogue storm trooper — appears to be a Jedi, as we see him holding a blue lightsaber!
Also seen on the poster is Daisy Ridley's character Rey, the villainous Kylo Ren, and of course Harrison Ford's silver fox Han Solo!
Director J.J. Abrams has been pretty silent on the characters of Finn and Rey — he isn't even revealing their last names because it would give too much away.
Can that mean at least one of them is a Solo or Skywalker? Find out when The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18!
