‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Poster Revealed, Tickets to Go on Sale Monday

As “Star Wars” fans (and theaters) continue to count down to the release of “The Force Awakens,” Disney and Lucasfilm treated them to the new official poster for the movie on Sunday.

In releasing the new poster, Regal Cinemas also announced that tickets will go on sale on Monday, and the “Star Wars” Twitter account confirmed rumors that a new teaser will air that same day during “Monday Night Football.”

The poster, unsurprisingly, doesn’t veer too much from the classic “Star Wars” style, and prominently features new characters alongside some familiar features. Perhaps most noticeable is Daisy Ridley’s Rey, who’s wielding a staff. Also on the poster are John Boyega as Finn, a masked Adam Driver as the evil Kylo Ren and returning “Star Wars” stars Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher as Han Solo and Princess Leia, respectively.

Fans will also have the opportunity to take another journey to the galaxy far, far away with a marathon of all six “Star Wars” films. The “Star Wars” event begins on Dec. 17 and will culminate with the debut of “The Force Awakens” on Dec. 18. Regal Cinemas, AMC Theatres, Cinemark, Alamo Drafthouse and El Capitan Theatre are among the participating locations.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” the seventh installment in the mega-franchise, will hit theaters Dec. 18. It’s directed by J.J. Abrams and also stars Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o and Andy Serkis. The “Monday Night Football” game between the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles, during which the teaser is expected to air, begins at 5:15 p.m. PST/8:15 p.m. EST on ESPN.
