While the plot and any imagery from Star Wars Episode IX has remained largely under-wraps… UNTIL NOW!!
We’ve just seen a pretty significant leak of character images, these 17 reference pictures of characters from the new film were just posted online by JediPraxis over at the /StarWarsLeaks subreddit.
JediPaxis released the following comment with this post:
“These images come courtesy of a source who has previously provided me information on previous films that were eventually proven to be correct. This individual wishes to remain anonymous (for fairly obvious reasons) and that’s why I’m posting this on his behalf. The images have been compiled into a collage with the unimportant sections of each image having been altered in an attempt to obscure where/who they came from. I would also like to note that images H and O corroborate what Jason from MSW recently said about Rey’s hair and Lando’s costume in the film. I received these images prior MSW’s article being published which not only lends credibility to Jason’s sources but also confirms to me that my source is solid. In addition to those two images, there’s plenty here to analyze, discuss and generally obsess over. Enjoy!”
The pictures show several new aliens, a new droid, our first looks at the costumes of new returning characters in Episode IX. As always if you are trying to avoid all Episode IX spoilers then stop reading now.
