With only about four months left before “Star Wars” makes it’s grand return to cinemas with “The Force Awakens,” we’re finally starting to get a sense of what the film will be about.

In addition to tantalising details about all sorts of things — including villain Kylo Ren — Lucasfilm released a number of new images via Entertainment Weekly Thursday.

Since then, the studio has released high-resolution versions of the images on the Star Wars Facebook page for fans to obsessively pour over.
