New ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Banner Is All About the Bad Guys
With the much-hyped “Force Friday” finally upon us, the steady trickle of Star Wars news has become a genuine deluge. But if you’re able to pull yourself away from live toy unboxing videos and that kind of amazing new BB-8 toy, there’s some new Star Wars: The Force Awakens art for you to look at. You know, just in case there isn’t enough Star Wars in your life at the moment.
This new international (note the Spanish) banner/wallpaper is all about the three main villains of The Force Awakens. Standing in front is Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), the mysterious masked baddie who has been the the focus of so much speculation and hype. To the left is Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie), the chrome-armored Stormtrooper who looks ready to bust down any and all gender lines in the Star Wars universe. Off to the side is General Hux (Domhnall Gleason), looking appropriately sleazy. Behind them is the assembled forces of the First Order, presumably assembled on their Starkiller Base.
There is literally nothing new to really chew on here, but who are we to deny you anything that has Star Wars printed on it? Besides, when the inevitable hero banner arrives sooner rather than later, you will be able to appreciate the matching set … and then set them to your dual monitor set-up, like a real nerd.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens on December 18, 2015, but you probably already knew that. Check out the new image for yourself below.
