StarWars.com has just revealed the the new poster for Star Wars: The Force Awakens… and it’s great.

What is the thing in the background that looks sort of like a proto-Death Star? Where’s Luke? Who is the alien on the left of the image? Why does it look like Rey is holding Ren’s saber?

Oh, my… oh and here’s a little teaser:

On top of that, the site has released info on tickets, the trailer and where the Star Wars Marathon events will be happening. Excited? You should be.

Oh and, in case you’re interested, here’s a brief teaser for the trailer which is due tomorrow… that overhead shot, though.

The full poster is below

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
