IMAX has revealed the first of four limited edition posters it is releasing for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, featuring the art work of acclaimed poster designer Dan Mumford.

Offering a fresh perspective on the lightsaber duel between Daisy Ridley’s Rey and Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren, teased in images and trailers for the film, the red and blue poster hints at an epic battle between the dark and light in the final film of the Skywalker saga.
