Star Wars Episode 7 official theatrical poster

Almost missed it. The movie's release is about two months out, and this is the one we'll be seeing everywhere until then. Interesting aside: It's not by Drew Struzan, but apparently designed by one Bryan Morton, working with other artists in Struzan's characteristic style.

Perhaps it's because it will be reconfigured a thousand different ways across media formats, such as the web banner below? I wouldn't blame Struzan, or anyone else, who just didn't want to engage with this sort of compositional process and the digital separations it would involve.


Struzan has created at least one poster for the new movie, and I prefer it. Morton's isn't bad, though, especially by the cereal-box standards of modern movie poster design.
