The 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' poster has been unveiled ahead of the trailer's release this week

Lucasfilm has unveiled the 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' poster.

Ahead of the release of the official trailer for the movie on Tuesday (20.10.15), the new poster featuring key members of the cast including Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn and Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron has been revealed.

Others featured on the poster including original characters Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher).

Drew Struzan, who has been working on the poster art for the franchise's seventh instalment, recently insisted this will be the best movie in the franchise.

He said: "I've never worked with J.J. [Abrams, the director] before and so we started working on it and he showed me like half the movie and it was just ... a wonderful film and I know it's going to be grand.

"I got to read the script and subsequently I've seen half of it and I can tell you and the fans this, honest to god, it is far and away probably going to be the best Star Wars you've ever seen."

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' opens in UK cinemas on 17 December 2015.

From the ashes of the Empire, the villainous First Order rises up to destroy Luke Skywalker (Hamill) – but where is he? Fans can rejoice: Episode VII is sensational and surprisingly emotional, with a finely-crafted script and effects that never overpower the performances. Star Wars is back in a big way.
