Red Bleeds Into the New Star Wars: The Last Jedi Teaser Posters
Red is a symbolic color in The Last Jedi. Writer-director Rian Johnson tells EW the movie is suffused with it. It's also the dominant hue of these teaser posters. This one features Oscar Isaac as X-wing ace Poe Dameron.
Red is the color of blood — both that which is spilled and that which is shared by families. Here we see Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, a man whose family ties have spilled a lot.
Whose blood runs through the veins of Daisy Ridley's Rey? The scavenger and orphan who discovered unfathomable Force powers doesn't know herself. The Last Jedi may resolve the question of her lineage.
The Big Deal
Red is also in the mineral-rich soil of the alien world of Crait, home to an old Rebel base that proves to be an important battle for the new Resistance. Here is John Boyega's Finn, now a true "big deal" in that group, standing strong.
Red also symbolizes the Sith. Leia Organa spent her life battling the dark side of The Force, which claimed her father, Darth Vader. But it nonetheless consumed her son as well...
Kylo Ren's handmade crossguard lighsaber bears the same scarlet hue as the weapon wielded by his grandfather, Darth Vader. The one Adam Driver's character uses also pierced the chest of his own father, Han Solo.
