Fans are still reeling from last week's final trailer from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which coincided with tickets to this highly-anticipated movie finally going on sale. It remains to be seen when Disney and LucasFilm will start rolling out the first clips and TV spots, but until then, Stitch Kingdom has unveiled six new photos, which give us a closer look at the film's new heroes. These images feature our best look yet at C-3PO, and his mysterious red arm, along with Rey (Daisy Ridley), BB-8, Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and Finn (John Boyega).
Even though there are less than two months left until Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters, there is still so much that we don't know about this adventure, especially regarding Luke Skywalker. Rumors have spread throughout the past two years, some claiming that he has gone into exile following Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi, and others claiming that his original lightsaber, which was found in the desert, sends new heroes Rey and Finn on their heroic journey. No plot details have been confirmed yet, and it's likely that we won't learn too much about Luke Skywalker and his plight until Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18. Producer Kathleen Kennedy did offer a tantalizing tidbit earlier this month, revealing that Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: Episode IX all revolve around Skywalker's family.
Another mystery revolves around the unknown surnames of Rey and Finn. J.J. Abrams has revealed there is a reason why Finn and Rey's surnames have not yet been revealed, with many speculating that these characters may be the offspring of characters from the original trilogy. Finn has been spotted wielding a lightsaber in a new poster and a brief video, but new trading cards reveal he is not part of the Jedi Order, although Rey is, even though we haven't seen her holding a lightsaber yet. This trailer showcases Finn's showdown with the villainous Kylo Ren (Adam Driver). Another report claims that the final runtime of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is two hours and 16 minutes, although that hasn't been confirmed either.
Earlier today, another rumor surfaced that the iconic Yoda will be featured in some capacity in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but we have no confirmation as of yet. while this beloved Jedi died in Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi, he did return as Force Ghost at the end of the movie. It's possible that he could return to offer some wisdom to his last pupil, Luke Skywalker, but we don't know how he many tie into the story. Frank Oz, who voiced the beloved character in all of the Star Wars movies and the animated TV series Star Wars Rebels, has said in the past he would come back to voice Yoda, if he was asked.
J.J. Abrams directs from a script he co-wrote with Lawrence Kasdan, with the supporting cast rounded out by Domhnall Gleeson (General Hux), Lupita Nyong'o (Maz Kanata) and Max von Sydow, whose character has still not been confirmed yet. While we wait for the first clips and TV spots to arrive, check out these new photos, and stay tuned for more on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, arriving in theaters December 18.
