Lucasfilm and Disney took to the D23 Expo stage earlier today with the cast of Star Wars: The Last Jedi to share new footage from the film via a behind the scenes video. Since then we’ve been on the receiving end of six stunning new character posters reveals that will have you seeing red.
If we need to over analyze, and we do, note that both Luke and Rey wield the Skywalker lightsaber in these images. Luke does not hold the saber he built as seen in Return of the Jedi, built to resemble Obi-Wan Kenobi’s (per Jedi training tradition).
