‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ First Look At Stormtroopers And New Art?

Fans of Star Wars: The Force Awakens will finally see new footage of the much awaited film and ahead of the big unveiling at the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, we have a first look at the new Stormtroopers.

Let’s face it, everyone is dying to take a longer look at old and new characters, after J.J. Abrams showed us a tiny peak on Thanksgiving weekend when the teaser was released. There, we were mostly introduced to the new characters and some other staple characters like the Stormtroopers, but very briefly.

Thanks to the good people at Making Star Wars, we now have a better look at the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens Stormtroopers. The website shared a photo of the promotional material those lucky enough to attend the Star Wars Celebration receive when they register for the exciting events.

Inside the brochure is a full body photo of the new Stormtrooper, which really is not much different from the original ones. Star Wars: The Force Awakens has the unenviable task of linking the much beloved original trilogy with Disney’s vision to move the franchise into the future.

As such, many of the original characters are still part of the new installment. Such is the case with the Stormtroopers, the Imperial guards who seemed to have a hard time moving around in their stiff white armor. The image of the new Stormtrooper seems a bit more “modern,” but other than that looks basically the same as before.

From this brochure shared by MSW, it seems like the Stormtrooper can move a little bit better perhaps. What do you think of this latest image?

In addition to the new image of the Stormtrooper, it appears that some Star Wars: The Force Awakens art has been leaked. According to the same website, the Belgian Star Wars Fan Club has come across art depicting Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, the incinerator trooper, and the new Imperial shuttle and emblem. The photos have been posted to Twitter by contributor Tim Veekhoven.

We will have to wait and see if the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer will shed any light on whether this art is just a fan creation or the real deal. Find out where to watch the Star Wars Celebration proceedings HERE.
