The official poster for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ is finally here and it looks great! A new trailer will arrive on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” tomorrow so stay tuned.

THE GUARDIAN – Kathleen Kennedy, one of the US film industry’s most senior women and the producer of the next instalment of the Star Wars franchise, has said that a new female character will be “extremely significant” to its plot in an interview in which she called on the industry to do more to promote women.

The comments by the president of Lucasfilm are likely to fuel speculation that Rey, played by English actor Daisy Ridley, is a scion of the Skywalker family and therefore a key character in the forthcoming films.

Fans of the movie have already speculated that Rey is the child of either Luke Skywalker or Princess Leia. The character’s ancestry has been called “one of the biggest mysteries” surrounding Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which opens in December.

Speaking at the Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit in Washington, Kennedy told the Guardian that Rey would be “extremely significant” but refused to reveal more details, insisting: “I don’t want to spoil the story.”

Kennedy, one of the most successful executives in the movie business, also revealed that six out of eight of the people involved in developing the film were women and that 50% of her executive team were female.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – This is the premiere you are looking for.

Disney and Lucasfilm will unveil Star Wars: The Force Awakens at a massive world premiere in Los Angeles on Dec. 14, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

From there, the highly-anticipated reboot will jump into lightspeed and head for a premiere in London, followed by other events around the world.

The Los Angeles premiere is sure to be one of the hottest tickets in recent Hollywood history, with executives, agents and journalists jockeying for a coveted invite. In addition, Disney is attempting to keep the film’s secrets under wraps, so there will be minimal screenings for press and cast and crew in advance of the premiere. While members of the cast of the J.J. Abrams-helmed film have appeared Comic-Con and Star Wars Celebration over the past year, the world premiere also is likely to be the first time that most or all of the cast will be seen together.

It’s not clear who walk the red carpet but the movie does boast a large cast of newcomers and veterans. Original Star Wars stars Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels and Peter Mayhew are returning for the new film. John Boyega, Daisy Ridley and Oscar Isaac play the three main protagonists, with Domhnall Gleeson, Adam Driver, Gwendoline Christie, Max von Sydow and Lupita Nyong’o also starring.
