The design of the new Star Wars movie poster is an electrifying look at the much-anticipated newest installment in the franchise -- but it maintains the iconic poster style that has been used throughout Star Wars history.

The new poster for the upcoming 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' release features the film's main characters grouped in an imposing column at its center. Shown in intense battle poses, the characters glow in the light from a blue lightsaber on one side of the poster and a red one on the other -- representing the battle between the Dark Side and the Jedi knights that is at the core of each film in the popular series. Examining other posters in the mega-franchise's history, a clear design formula can be seen, with the tradition continuing in this new Star Wars movie poster.

Accompanying the new poster's release is the first official trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens which will air tonight during ESPN's Monday night football broadcast.
