The dark side and the light will face each other in December, but first, they’ll hit newsstands with Empire Magazine. The popular film magazine just revealed its themed December issues, which feature two of the most significant characters in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Representing the side of light is Daisy Ridley’s Rey, who first discovered her hidden Jedi abilities in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The dark side cover features Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren aka. Ben Solo. The character was raised by Han and Leia Solo, before betraying his family and turning to the dark side.
Check out the covers below:
Empire has also revealed its exclusive subscriber covers, which offer a different look at the two characters. While these covers won’t be available on newsstands, they certainly look fantastic on our computer screens.
Looking at the covers revealed by Empire, it’s clear that Lucasfilm is setting up a major rivalry between Rey and Kylo Ren. Since we haven’t seen too much footage from the film, we can only speculate, but it would be safe to assume that Rey and Kylo will come into contact in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Rey develops her newly discovered abilities with the guidance of Luke Skywalker, who is unsettled by the strength of her powers. Meanwhile, the Resistance prepares to do battle with the First Order.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is directed by Rian Johnson and stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, John Boyega, Carrie Fisher, Oscar Isaac, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Andy Serkis, Laura Dern, and Domhnall Gleeson.
The film lands in theatres on December 15, 2017!
