I have to admit it, when Disney first acquired Lucasfilm and revealed they’d be both continuing the main saga and creating spinoff films for Star Wars, I was skeptical. Scratch that. I was cynical as hell. I’d been so burned by the prequel trilogy that I’d pretty much accepted that there was no coming back for the series. Yet as time went on, I found myself gettingmore and more excited for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Luckily for me, the film didn’t disappoint.

With that obstacle out of the way, Disney and Lucasfilm are now approaching their next big one: an anthology film. Can Rogue One: A Star Wars Story succeed on its own merits? With every day that passes and with every piece of marketing we get, my faith gets bolstered.

You can add another couple pieces of marketing that are doing their job. Courtesy of the official Star Wars Twitter account, we now have a couple of posters: one from South Korea, and one from Japan.

Check them out below:

Sure, these images may not necessarily fit the American aesthetic of graphic design, but there’s something immensely rewarding about the minimalist approach they’re taking here.
