Horikoshi commented on this poster: ‘It is an honor to be involved with my beloved Star Wars in this way.’ About the movie’s main points he adds: ‘There are so many points in this movie I’m excited about and looking forward to. Of course about Luke and Rey’s relationship, Kylo Ren’s path, Captain Phasma’s activities which we didn’t get to see in the previous movie, how the weaponry AT-M6 will be defeated and much more’ and ‘I am waiting for a climax to develop like Vader and Luke’s fight.

Comment from Kohei Horikoshi
The reason why he came to like Star Wars
‘The first thing I remember is that I happened to see Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back on TV. After it was decided that Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace would be created, I just got addicted because of the wild enthusiasm which took place around the world. I also completed the Pepsi bottle cap collection. Star Wars‘ attraction comes from the presence of creatures, aliens, and speeders, which can be seen in the corners of the screen. I love the really innovative designs. Especially Vader and the Stormtroopers’ designs, which will last forever.
I personally really like the design and shape of Sebulba.’
What to expect from the latest work
‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens is like a reminiscence of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope), so I am waiting for a climax to develop in The Last Jedi like Vader and Luke’s fight in The Empire Strikes Back (Episode V). Who is the Last Jedi? I can’t stop imagining what will happen. I am just too excited!’
