“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” released posters of the five main characters in the upcoming movie but someone is missing.
Disney and Lucasfilm unveiled new solo character posters of Han Solo, Princess Leia, Rey, Finn, and Kylo Ren, but fans are asking – where is Luke Skywalker?
When asked about it, director J.J. Abrams told E! News, “It’s no accident that you asked that question. But I can’t wait for you to find out the answer.”
Luke, played by Mark Hamill, was also absent when the film’s promotional poster was released last month, E News noted.
On the newly-released posters, it is noticeable that the characters’ right eye, except for Princess Leia, were obscured by their chosen weapon.
Kylo’s right eye is covered with a red lightsaber, Finn with a blue blade, while Han and Rey were concealed by a blaster.
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” posters featured Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), and Adam Driver (Kylo Ren).
The movie also stars Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Max Von Sydow.
Meanwhile, Ridley teased the identity of Rey’s parents. In an interview The Hollywood Reporter, the actress did not confirm nor deny any of the rumors about the Star War character’s parents, but she said: “Questions will be answered, absolutely.”
The full trailer for the seventh installment of Star Wars franchise has debuted online last month. Its release also coincided with the launch of ticket sales for the movie.
