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.
Let’s take a look at them.
J.J. Abrams gives direction to Daisy Ridley, who plays a character named Rey, on the desert world of Jakku.
The stormtroopers will be a part of a new Imperial remnant called The First Order which will be led by General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson).
Who will they have to answer to? Well, there's X-Wing pilot Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac). Notice his ship is painted black -- although we don't know why yet.
We'll also see the return of some old friends -- R2-D2 and C-3PO -- though it looks like they will be back with some changes. Check out C-3PO's new red arm.
