New Star Wars: The Force Awakens Character Posters Revealed

Well, you had to know that the final Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer wasn't going to be the very last thing released before the December 18 premiere, right? These five new character posters, three of which were shared on Instagram by the film's stars, all share a common theme—the right eye of the character is covered (or in the case of Carrie Fisher's Leia, simply obscured). What's that about? Just aesthetic cohesion and nothing more? Or can we start speculating there's something potentially plot-specific to this covering-the-right-eye business?

While StarWars.com has so far only shared these five posters, you could probably bet that there's a few more waiting to released. Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), Captain Phasma (Gwedoline Christie) and BB-8 from the new crop, and perhaps a Chewy, R2-D2 and C3P0 backing up Han and Leia on the old school front?

Don't hold your breath for Luke, though.
