'The Force Awakens' Character Billboards Spotted In Times Square

By: Benjamin Hart

Promotional material for The Force Awakens is popping up everywhere and it's making it almost impossible to escape Star Wars these days(not that we want to). Not it appears one of the most famous places in the World is getting the Episode VII treatment. Our friends at Making Star Wars have pointed us to some photos posted to Instagram by toyfiend which show some stunning, panoramic character billboards that were spotted in Times Square in New York City. One gives us a new look at Princess... I mean General Leia, and the other features a great profile view of Han Solo with his iconic DL-44 blaster appearing ready to fire in his outstretched hand.

In addition, John Boyega, who portrays Finn in the film, posted the following video to his Instagram which show him standing in awe in Time Square viewing a billboard of his character. The artwork is the same design we saw a few weeks back on a banner, which features Finn in a firery landscape wielding the Skywalker Lightsaber.

Update: Toyfiend just posted the following image to Instagram. Apparently the billboards are digital and change periodically. Also included in the mix is Kylo Ren with his Broadsaber and Rey with her staff.

Seeing stuff like this just makes me that much more excited for December 18th!
