Empire Magazine: The Force Awakens Covers

The Star Wars The Force Awakens Empire Magazine October Covers

The new Empire Magazine Star Wars-themed cover have landed, but are full of errors…see below

The first cover features the three First Order baddies from the movie, including Gwendoline Christie’s Captain Phasma, Domnhall Gleeson’s General Hux, and Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren, who’s wielding that crossguard lightsaber…although I’m not sure about the Stormtroopers, they look a lot like the ones from the Original Trilogy…Photoshop error No:1?

The alternative Empire Magazine Star Wars-themed cover features Resistance trio, including John Boyega‘s Finn, Daisy Ridley’s Ray, and Oscar Isaac‘s Poe Dameron, with BB-8 and the Millennium Falcon on the background, which looks like some camouflage covers blowing off it, but it does have the old radar dish still on it which got destroyed in The Return of the Jedi …Photoshop error No:2?

The First Order Assembles

The newly released TV Spot shown on the new Star Wars Korean YouTube Channel has a 30-second clip contains Supreme Leader Snoke’s (Andy Serkis) same voiceover from the first teaser, with much of the footage recycled from the second. There’s actually only one new shot: A sweeping look at The First Order (above), and it looks like quite the force to be reckoned with. It also looks like Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) and possibly General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson) looking out over all those stormtroopers from the platform.

Domhnall Gleeson as General Hux, a cruel leader of The First Order who craves to show the galaxy his might. (This image was briefly shown at Comic-Con but never released in detail until now on the Star Wars Facebook page)

Inside this shimmering armor is a warrior for The First Order, Captain Phasma (played by Gwendoline Christie of Game of Thrones). Her character’s name has an unexpected origin…so JJ says

Kylo Ren (played by Adam Driver) strikes a pose with his homemade lightsaber. It turns out, his true identity has been masked from us in more ways than one …he’s also part of The Knights of Ren

They’ve even released some new shot of our old friends, but in a new time and place. R2-D2 seems to have hardly changed, but C-3PO (still played by Anthony Daniels) now sports an unexplained red arm.

Also the shot of Poe Dameron that was shown at Comic-Con, which shows his Black X-Wing and more importantly Gonk is BACK...Hurrah!!! …But there’s a reason the X-Wing fighter is black, but J.J. Abrams wants to keep that a mystery for now. Stealth tech?

Some new images from the Star Wars Facebook account, the best one is the stormtrooper taking aim at Ray & Finn…no bets on if his misses 🙂
