Much Revealed In New ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Photos

Entertainment Weekly released 12 new photos from Star Wars: The Force Awakens that reveal some information while adding more mystery to the film.

Daisy Ridley and John Boyega get their exercise in as their characters are chased by the First Order. Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren graces the EW cover and the description reveals his light saber is homemade and his true identity has been masked. They also establish that Finn is on the run and escaped in a Storm Trooper outfit and TIE Fighter. Rey rescues BB-8. We get the first real look at C-3PO’s red arm, and Domhnall Gleeson as General Hux (Leader of The First Order). EW explains that Captain Phasma’s name has an unexpected origin and that there is a reason for the black X-Wing.
