3 Thoughts On: New Star Wars Photos...

           The recent Entertainment Weekly photos for Star Wars: The Force Awakens are really helping to reinforce my confidence in this movie...

1. Kylo Ren, What a Boss:
This is an awesome shot of the new villain. The trees and snow indicate that this is probably the same scene taken from the teaser. I'm still dying to know more about him. The recent news is that he's a Vader fan with a homemade lightsaber (Which would explain why the bean from the teaser was ...well...crackly). I'm totally on board with that
saber now btw...

2. General Hux:
Those who saw Domhnall Gleeson in Ex-Machina (which was a great movie) know that he played the nerd role pretty well. That said, I was not expecting him to look as villain-like as he does in this first look photo. The uniform, the frown, I'm thinking he'll get the job done (might as well throw in a monacle).

3. The Rest of the Photos:
There's no bombshells in any of the remaining shots (unless you're blown away by C-3PO's red arm). The photo of Captain Phasma is awesome (especially since we know Lady Brienne of Tarth is under
there), so is the one of Kylo Ren burning the village. Just about the only major conclusion drawn from the remaining photos is that Finn...
A) is most likely the one who crashed that Tie Fighter on Jakku, which means...
B) that he's probably the one who shoots up that hanger in the trailer...
...and whats with the black X-Wing? Some new tech? just the new ship fashion?

What did you think of the new photo's?
