We still have a while to go before Disney begins churning out marketing materials for Star Wars: Episode VII, but if this fan-made poster is any indication, we're in for an emotional roller coaster as one of today's most successful filmmakers (J.J. Abrams) attempts to revisit the Star Wars franchise in live-action form for its first big-screen sequel since Return of the Jedi bid farewell to Luke Skywalker, his sister Leia, and her man Han Solo all those years ago.
How will they go about continuing the stories of characters who are almost like religious figures at this point? Well, though it's in no way a piece of official marketing, this poster from Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman certainly points in an ominous direction that sorta gives you goosebumps even though it may have nothing at all to do with the movie. What happened to the Millennium Falcon? Who are those two figures off in the distance?
It's a tantalizing tease -- and knowing the way Abrams likes to tease, we wouldn't be surprised if the official stuff isn't too far off from what you see below.
What do you think? Is this the kind of marketing you'd like to see behind the next Star Wars movie?
