Stormtroopers In Episode VII?!

By Drax Largo on August 15th, 2014

If the Tweets below are authentic (and I think they are) it’s highly likely the Empire isn’t entirely dead! If you’ll feast your eyes you’ll see what is presumably the new helmets for Stormtroopers and Snowtroopers. How they will factor into the narrative remains a mystery, of course. All we know is the time period: Episode VII will take place 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi.

The new movie will also see the return of original saga cast members Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker. Newcomers include John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong’o and veteran character actor Max von Sydow.

J.J. Abrams takes over the director’s chair from Darth Lucas.

Star Wars: Episode VII hits theaters December 18, 2015.
