Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens Poster Revealed

This previous weekend, at Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA, we got our first look at the first poster for The Force Awakens created by Drew Struzan.

Obviously the major thing here is the fact that Finn (John Boyega) is wielding Luke Skywalker’s blue lightsaber that was given to him by Obi-Wan and originally belonged to Anakin. We knew Luke’s lightsaber would come into play as we saw it changed hands in the latest teaser trailer and it’s interesting that Finn’s last name still hasn’t been revealed. Does this mean the lightsaber is being kept in the family? Or is Finn simply borrowing it? Or did Finn just happen to come into possession and have no idea of it’s significance. Either way, I’m stoked.
Also, note the moisture farm rig place just under Han Solo’s arm. Will the Star Wars crew be returning to Tatooine? Is that where Luke has been spending the last few decades? What do you think about this poster?
