Seeing Adam Driver as Kylo Ren gracing the cover of this week’s Entertainment Weekly is exciting enough for any ‘Star Wars’ fan, but it’s the images inside that has us buzzing with giddiness and we have them here to share!
While there really isn’t much about the plot to be seen, it is nice to get some fresh looks at both the villains and heroes of the film. Below you’ll see new images of Finn (John Boyega), Rey (Daisy Ridley), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), and, of course, R2-D2 and C-3PO as well as the newest trio representing the Dark Side General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson), Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), and Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie).
As for how our heroes get together with the original ‘Star Wars’ characters? Here’s what Abrams would reveal according to EW:
… Luke’s fate is obviously a key factor. Ford’s Han Solo, however, will be one of the leads, piloting the Millennium Falcon alongside his old pal Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew.) Among the newcomers, desert scavenger Rey (Daisy Ridley) and runaway Stormtrooper Finn (John Boyega) will be running for their lives, with the rolling droid BB-8 trying to keep up. Eventually all five of them end up aboard that familiar starship.
With only 4 months to go until ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters, the pressure is on to deliver what can be said as the most anticipated film of the year. Abrams is still working to get the film completed but information is beginning to trickle out and what we know so far, has us wanting more.
While we wait for the next bit of news to come out, check out the images below!
‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ opens in theaters on December 18.
