She’s led some of the top creative forces in Hollywood and has been honored with an Emmy Award and four VES Award nominations, not to mention the vital role she played as James Cameron’s Visual Effects Producer on ‘Titanic.’”

To work with such an incredible team of talented artists is a great honor. With my recent experience in 3D, I’m excited about Kerner’s new, state-of-the-art 3D camera rigs. I look forward to building on Kerner’s rich past and fostering new and creative partnerships thoughout the film industry.”

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?
