D23: Theme Parks, A New Cast Pic, A New Poster & More!

Saturday was a heavy-handed day for Star Wars fans attending Disney's D23 Expo in Anaheim, California. Cutting right to the chase here, various costumes and other goods were unveiled at the expo, including plans for Star Wars Land - two 14-acre theme parks in Anaheim, California and Orlando, Florida with three concept pictures to show fans what is in store.

As for film, aside from co-writing the forthcoming sequel to his summer box-office hit, Jurassic World, filmmaker Colin Trevorrow will have plenty of time to work out the kinks in time to direct the ninth Star Wars film. Trevorrow currently completes the roster of directors now involved in Disney and Lucasfilm's new trilogy of films within the canon aside from the upcoming spin-offs, including the December 16, 2016 release of director Gareth Edwards's Star Wars: Rogue One; That film also got its day today with a new cast photo featuring Felicity Jones front and center with Asian cinema stars Jiang Wen and Donnie Yen on the far right. 
Of course, the biggest reveal of the day was the official poster for J.J. Abrams's Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which has already caused a stir with new exclusive pictorals over at EW. The poster was designed by artist Drew Struzan and was handed out exclusively to D23 attendees. Check it out below!

Further details are pending regarding Rian Johnson's work on the eighth Star Wars film arriving on May 26, 2017 with Sicario co-star, actor Benicio Del Toro in talks as of late, in addition to film duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller's Han Solo origin flick set for May 25, 2018.
