Empire Magazine: The Force Awakens Special Edition Covers

Empire Magazine have just revealed their six Star Wars: The Force Awakens ‘Special Edition’ covers which look quite fantastic, but their saying they are even better in the flesh, as they are making use of dazzling lenticular 3D technology.

Finn, played by John Boyega, is the Stormtrooper-turned-rebel, and appears on the cover wielding Luke Skywalkers blue lightsaber. JB described his first lightsaber experience: “I held it in my hand and I just felt, you know, the clouds open up and the white doves come flying down”.

Interesting quote from Adam Driver about Kylo Ren  “I never thought of the character as an evil person”… I wonder how he came to that conclusion?

Captain Phasma and Poe Dameron

Rey and her Dad? or Uncle?

But if that wasn’t enough, there is also an extremely Limited Edition special issue, for us dedicated Star Wars fans. Partnering up with Hasbro and Sainsburys, they’ve included an official action figure of Kylo Ren with certain Force Awakens issues. Only 4,500 copies of this special issue will be printed, making it an instant collector’s item.

UPDATE : Empire Exclusive Images

Empire also got this Hi Res exclusive image of Gwendoline Christie’s ‘Chrometrooper’, Captain Phasma in action

Below is another Hi-Res Empire exclusive of hotshot Resistance X-wing pilot, Dameron who is sent on a special mission by “a certain princess”, crossing paths with John Boyega’s Finn before their “fates are forever intertwined”.

Star Wars 360

Speed across the Jakku desert from Star Wars: The Force Awakens with this brilliant and immersive 360 experience created exclusively for Facebook

Facebook just rolled out 360-degree videos for your newsfeed, and the trailblazing clip is a stunner. The Facebook page for Star Wars just posted exclusive 360 footage of a speeder cruising across the Jakku desert—right by that downed Star Destroyer from the Battle of Jakku.

You can watch this Star Wars vid, and other videos like it, in a couple of ways. At a desktop, you can just drag around with a mouse. On your mobile and tablets you can point and twist it in different directions to change the angle of the video, making it feel totally immersive. The most exciting part is presumably once Facebook-owned Oculus puts out Oculus Rift, we’ll be able to use that technology in the work place for architectural and graphics presentations.

Although this 360 video is new to Facebook, it’s not to the world. YouTube has been doing 360 video for a while now, and even worked with GoPro to make a rig for shooting it. That said, this Star Wars clip is a real trailblazer.
