Kylo Ren Emerges in New ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Promo Art
It’s a big day for Star Wars fans. Today kicks off this year’s Star Wars Celebration, a giant, Lucasfilm-sanctioned Star Wars convention where Disney will finally unveil the first full trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. So get ready for a full day of videos and images and news from the con, starting with this mysterious new Force Awakens promo art that’s popping up on social media. They offer the clearest look yet at new Force Awakens baddie (and hilted-lightsaber wielder) Kylo Ren and at lead Stormtrooper Captain Phasma. Via Making Star Wars, here are a trio of images first posted by Tim Veekhoven, a writer for StarWars.com:
Veekhoven also linked to two more images of new baddie Kylo Ren:
There’s no official source or confirmation on any of this stuff, so they could still be fan art of some kind, but they look awfully legit to us. We’ll know for sure very soon, when J.J. Abrams and the Lucasfilm team begin unveiling The Force Awakens trailer later today. Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters on December 18.
