I know what you’re thinking. The official Star Wars celebration is tomorrow, and with that the promise of not only a poster for Star Wars: The Force Awakens but a fully fledged trailer as well. With that in mind, couldn’t this juicy piece of Episode VII filet be kept aside until then. I suppose you’re right, except you’re totally wrong! Granted, tomorrow promises to be a hailstorm of Star Wars movie news, but this is a marathon, not a sprint. You can’t just dive headfirst into all the news tomorrow, you’ll pull a hammie for sure. So think of this reveal of the the new stormtrooper costumes in full as some light stretching before the race starts.
Screenrant us reporting that in the preparation for the celebration, an Instagram was posted of the official programme for the show, which happens to include a full body stormtrooper image. Check it out below, courtesy of Instagram:
Exciting stuff right? If you look at the original trailer for Force Awakens you can see that the helmet matches up perfectly with the platoon, and the chest portion is identical to the one sported by John Boyega. It’s certainly a very Abrams-esque take on a classic design, making advancements without doing the original armour a disservice. All we need now is to see how the suit looks in action!
Force Awakens hits theatres on December 25th 2015.
And now that you’ve had your starter, here’s the main course sucker! A new trailer for The Force Awakens. It’s awesome – you’ve been warned. Fresh from Youtube:
I’ll let you sit with that for a while. We’ll be seeing you in four days for that Batman vs Superman trailer we’ve heard so much about.
