‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Unveils Vibrant Posters With Delightful Typography
By Izza Sofia, 06 Feb 2018
After months of anticipation, new posters have been released for Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Unlike Rogue One, which went for a slightly more serious tone, this series of character posters reveal the colorful ensemble of the Star Wars spin off that has decidedly taken on a more light hearted vibe to things. The first poster that comes in a vibrant orange hue shows Alden Ehrenreich holding the signature blaster of ‘Han Solo’.
Donald Glover stars in a ‘Lando Calrissian’ render amongst the clouds. Emilia Clarke, known for her role as ‘Daenerys Targaryen’ in Game Of Thrones, makes her debut as ‘Qi’ra’, while the final poster shows ‘Chewbacca’ armed with a gun against a yellow backdrop.
The posters also also have taken an unabashedly bold tone in typography and design, which sets up a more extravagant tone for the upcoming movie.
The design of the posters is a result of fusing old and new elements; the flaking paper background shows the striking contrast to the painted images with sci-fi fonts. The promotional material also take a effective yet simple approach in its general composition.
Solo: A Star Wars story is schedule to hit theatres on 28 May 2018. Watch the trailer here.
