A couple of weeks ago, famed poster artist Drew Struzan revealed his first poster for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” at Disney’s D23 Expo in California:

It held more faint clues in very long series of faint clues being drawn out as the movies December 18 release date approaches.

In the poster, you can see three suns, a moisture vaporator, Anakin’s lightsaber and the stairs from Bespin’s Cloud City. All of those background aspects are not surprisingly closely tied the original trilogy.

Another poster from Struzan can’t be too far away – this one was a limited edition for the expo and Struzan created the final theatrical posters for the last prequel trilogy and the specidal edition original trilogy.

To fill in time until the official drop, Freelancer thought it was a good time to see what the fans could make of what they had heard from “The Force Awakens” set so far.

There’s a cash prize for the top three, and it’s already attracted some 200 entries.

We’ve picked out a mix of the most popular so far, and those which have something to say about what Star Wars fans think the plot will entail.

By far the most liked main element has been Rey, the spaceship parts scavenger dropped onto the desert planet Jakku:
