'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' first poster highlights aging Han Solo, new Jedi

Exciting New Trailer for 'Stars Wars: The Force Awakens'

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is betting big on the return of Han Solo, as Disney has placed the aging fan favorite front and center on the first poster for the sequel.

A picture of the poster (below) hit the web on Saturday after the studio's D23 presentation for the film directed by J.J. Abrams.

The poster, which is reminiscent of marketing material for previous "Star Wars" movies, also features newcomers John Boyega and Daisy Ridley.

Boyega, who was seen removing a Stormtrooper helmet in the first teaser Lucasfilm released months ago, wields a blue lightsaber, indicating his hero status opposite Adam Driver's Kylo Ren — a mysterious practitioner of the Dark Side of the Force who wears a mask meant to be nod to Darth Vader.

Take a look at the poster in all its glory below.
