‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Star John Boyega Teams Up With Chewbacca in New Photo
Lucasfilm and Disney have been keeping things pretty tight with promotional materials for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We’ve only seen a handful of official photos and two trailers so far, and we won’t see another new trailer until sometime this fall. But John Boyega has a special gift for fans today: a new promotional photo from the film featuring the star alongside a very familiar face.
Boyega posted the photo on Instagram, featuring his character Finn alongside good ol’ Chewbacca:
That image actually belongs to a larger promo banner for a Russian LEGO catalogue (yeah…) that’s been making the rounds in an unofficial capacity. You can see the full image at Slashfilm.
Lucasfilm and Disney didn’t debut any new footage at Comic-Con, though they did show off a great behind the scenes featurette that leaned heavily on the idea of practical effects. The studios promised a new trailer will arrive this fall, probably around the same time that the first new Star Wars products hit shelves on September 4, or what the studios are referring to as “Force Friday.”
It’s unclear if we’ll actually see Boyega fighting alongside Chewie in the film, or if that’s just how they’re set up in the promo image. Fingers crossed.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18.
