First Look at Rey, Finn, and Poe in Force Friday II Announcement

As part of their announcement of Force Friday II (the day when The Last Jedi toys and other products hit shelves), which will will be on September 1, Lucasfilm has released an image of the basic packaging for the merchandise, providing us with our first official look at three of our favorite heroes in The Last Jedi.
Finn and Poe Dameron both seem to have slightly different costumes, but – as usual – Rey steals the show, looking as fierce as ever and sporting a new, longer hairdo. She's wielding Anakin and Luke Skywalker's old lightsaber once again, suggesting that in the first scenes of the movie, Luke refuses to accept her offering and instead tells her to keep the weapon for herself and continue to use it under his tutelage.

Obviously this is a very small reveal that doesn't provide any real plot details, but it's still exciting to see the three young heroes of The Force Awakens again. This promo art is just the latest step of Lucasfilm's slow-build marketing campaign, which will hopefully reach new heights in April with a teaser trailer (and a behind-the-scenes reel around that time as well).

What do you think of this promo art? Tell me in the comments or tweet to @SithObserver, and may the Force be with you all.
