May the fourth be… NO! I will not do it, I will not say those words. Luckily, Vanity Fair will, and with them, they posted a handful of new set photos from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, revealing a few juicy details.
First and foremost is our first look at Adam Driver as Kylo Ren. This confirms that the brilliant Girls-star is the hooded villain from the very first teaser trailer, which makes wonder how awesome his face will look when illuminated by his red crossguard lightsaber. The set photos, all taken by Annie Leibovitz, also reveal Lupita Nyong’o’s face dotted with motion capture technology (see photo below). She will play a CG character called Maz Kanata, who’s only described as a pirate. Which side she will take we don’t know, so let the speculation begin.
We also have a larger photo, supposedly showcasing a bunch of “galactic travellers, smugglers, and other assorted riffraff” in the main hall of Maz Kanata’s castle. That’s right, Nyong’o’s character has her own castle. Finally, we’re back to two characters we’ve seen before; Oscar Isaac’s looks ready to become everybody’s new idol as Poe Dameron, while Daisy Ridley’s Rey is shown on her speeder being directed by J.J. Abrams.
