Entertainment Weekly (yes, that one) premiered these amazing images from the upcoming seventh episode of the Star Wars saga.
Set thirty years after the destruction of the second Death Star and the defeat of the Empire in 1983’s Episode VI, The Force Awakens is co-written by JJ Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan (Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi). It will be a blend of the old and the new with young heroes and villains rubbing shoulders with renowned characters such as Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo and Chewbacca. The new photos feature the ‘Chrome Trooper’ Captain Phasma, X-Wing pilot Poe Dameron, the evil Sith Kylo Ren and new villain General Hux. Additionally, we have our first glimpse of the classic protocol droid C-3PO (sporting another new limb) and trusty astromech R2-D2.
As December draws closer, anticipation mounts for the latest installment in the modern space opera. The new international TV spot even contains some new images!
