For lapsed Star Wars fans who have finally begun to forgive this series for its many transgressions, the new canon has been a blessing. Sure, some longtime fans were angry that years worth of novels and comics and video games were wiped away so Disney and Lucasfilm could rebuild this saga from the ground up, but this decision has resulted in a creative renaissance. Marvel’s new Star Wars comics, for example, are nothing short of exceptional and thanks to the new clean slate, the writers and artists involved are pretty much allowed to do whatever the hell they want.

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.

A few months ago, Williams cryptically teased fans about the possible return of his beloved Lando Calrissian character, giving us all a little hope. And now veteran Star Wars writer Lawrence Kasdan is adding to that hope, further teasing Lando’s return.

When Vanity Fair released all of those incredible Star Wars: The Force Awakens photographs, one of the most intriguing images features Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o in a motion capture rig. This sight, not uncommon for major talents in the wake of Andy Serkis, confirmed a bunch of old rumors: the 12 Years a Slave star is playing an alien in J.J. Abrams’ upcoming film.
