Star Wars: The Force Awakens is introducing a whole new set of characters for the upcoming trilogy, including Finn, Rey, Kylo Ren and, most importantly, BB-8. It’s also bringing back some old favorites like Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca and the Stormtroopers. Because the movie takes place 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi, the looks for the new characters needed to be updated. We know Luke has a bushy new beard, Han Solo has visibly aged and the Stormtroopers have gotten a new look. But instead of looking older, the Stormtroopers look brand new, and that wasn’t an accident. The new Star Wars costume designer says they were created to look like they were designed by Apple.

When the first movie in Disney and Lucasfilm’s new Star Wars trilogy arrives in December, we’ll undoubtedly be greeted with some references to the original series — obviously. There’s a fine line between crafting clever and meaningful references that resonate fondly with your audience, and beating them over the head with what you think they want for nostalgia’s sake.
