See Han, Leia, and the new kids on the block in 5 new Star Wars: The Force Awakens posters

The core cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is getting the character poster treatment, but with a decidedly cool twist.

Disney has dropped five character posters featuring much of the core cast, including Han Solo, Finn, Rey, Princess Leia and big bad Kylo Ren. Discerning fans will certainly notice Rebel pilot Poe Dameron and Luke Skywalker himself are missing from the set, but hey, we’ll take what we can get.

The studio has put a nice spin on the old cliche here, with each character showing off their weapon of choice. Rey has her staff, Finn has a lightsaber, Han has his tried-and-true blaster, Kylo Ren has his lightsaber, and Leia has ... umm ... some lights and stuff around her. What’s interesting about the Leia shot (aside from it being our best look yet at Carrie Fisher) is that it seems to set her up as a leader/tactician in this war, as there seem to be charts/maps behind her.

Hmm, just something to note. Also, seriously — where are Poe and Luke?!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens Dec. 18.
