Lucasfilm Drops New Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Character Posters
With less than a month before the official release of The Rise of Skywalker, Disney and Lucasfilm are pressing the accelerator on the marketing campaign. Now a brand new set of character posters has made its way online on the franchise’s socials. Most highlight the core characters we are familiar with from the last two films. But on top of that, we also get a closer look at the newcomers, like Naomi Ackie’s Jannah. And Lando, of course.
You can check out The Rise of Skywalker character posters in the gallery below.
Returning cast members for The Rise of Skywalker include Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo and Billie Lourd. Joining the cast are Naomi Ackie (Doctor Who), Richard E. Grant (Logan), Dominic Monaghan (Lord of the Rings), and Keri Russell (The Americans). The cast features also veteran Star Wars actors Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels and Billy Dee Williams, who will reprise his role as Lando Calrissian. The role of Leia Organa will once again be played by Carrie Fisher, using previously unreleased footage shot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
In addition to directing, Abrams co-wrote the screenplay with Chris Terrio (Argo, Justice League) from a story by himself, Terrio, Derek Connelly and Colin Trevorrow. Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, and Abrams will produce, with Callum Greene and Jason McGatlin executive producing. The franchise’s historical composer John Williams will return to a galaxy far, far away with Rise of Skywalker.
