The design is certainly one of the more eye-catching in all of the Rogue One posters revealed to date, highlighting the movie’s main themes. Once again, the tagline “A Rebellion built on hope,” is used with Jyn Erso and members of her team placed inside the word “hope,” which is seen here in an ultra-stylized font. There isn’t much to it, but sometimes less is more when it comes to posters. Collectors and fans have long preferred minimalist artwork to some of the theatrical one-sheets that cram as many characters into a small space as possible. Some may enjoy hanging this on their wall.
Now all that’s left is to see if Rogue One can live up to the hype and continue the Star Wars resurgence. There’s a considerable amount of pressure on it to perform strongly, given that Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy recently said that the post-Episode IX landscape of the franchise could be exclusively standalones. For that to happen, the first one needs to come storming out of the gate. Fortunately, Rogue One looks like it will deliver another memorable journey to the galaxy far, far away.
