Last Friday, Lucasfilm unveiled the title, teaser and poster for the next Star Wars film, The Rise of Skywalker. While the name has been galactically ridiculed by fans, designers are twitching their eyes at the movie’s artwork instead.
As pointed out by author and film critic Zaki Hasan on Twitter, the logo in the film’s poster is placed noticeably higher than those of its predecessors, The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.
Creatives joke that this could be a result of Lucasfilm and Disney Studios’ design team losing their working files, while others jest that the shift in the wordmark could have been a play on the word, “rise.”
The inconsistent design might be difficult to unsee. Luckily, some have also taken the liberty to “fix” the poster such that its title aligns with the others.

That's what happens when you misplace working files.— Jeffrey Rickel (@macphisto96) April 13, 2019

trust me, the designer almost certainly is losing their mind too over the final one not matching, but someone up the food chain made choices and now we all must suffer— Tara O'Shea (@tara_oshea) April 13, 2019
