This Unofficial Poster For THE FORCE AWAKENS Might Just Be Better Than The Real Thing

Most fans adored the official poster for JJ Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens, although a few complained about the absence of a certain 'Luke Skywalker'. Well he's made it onto this unofficial one - which was apparently turned down by Disney/Lucasfilm. Check it out!


Most fans were more than satisfied with the official poster for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Yes, it was a little crowded, but it easily outclassed the majority of posters currently coming out of Hollywood. However, the folks at Disney may have just been one-upped. Talented graphic illustrator Adam Relf recently uploaded this phenomenal poster, and it's currently picking up a lot of praise.

Per TheForce.net, Relf's work was actually pitched to the studio at some point. If true, it's likely Disney/Lucasfilm turned it down due to its prominent use of Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker (who has been conspicuously absent from the movie's marketing material). He's depicted here below in a manner that perfectly mirrors Obi-Wan Kenobi from A New Hope



What do you think of Relf's composition? It's easy to understand why Disney were forced to turn it down, but it's still a shame to think it won't be featured more prominently. If you liked this, you should check out Relf's official site - he's created a very impressive body of work.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theatres December 18, 2015.
