Leaked Star Wars photos show us two returning characters and a new one!
There's only 6 months that stand between us and a new STAR WARS film, and that's ridiculously exciting. Still, with SDCC around the corner and more trailers and TV spots to hit, there's bound to be a lot more FORCE AWAKENS material coming our way. If you're looking to avoid as much as possible, as to not pull a PHANTOM MENACE, then you might want to avert your eyes as we have some slightly SPOILERY material to check out!
As being reported by Star Wars 7 News, there are some promotional photos of a few characters that have leaked. As always, there's a chance that these could NOT be the real deal or different characters, but I doubt it. First up is J.J. Abrams favorite, Greg Grunberg. The man has played bit parts in each of Abrams' projects but it looks like he's taking a major step up in the world of STAR WARS as an X-Wing pilot!
The site states that he's signed on for 3 films and that he'll even have his own action figure, so it looks like Grunberg will be sticking around! Next up are two fan-favorites who played a most pivotal role in bringing down the second Death Star in RETURN OF THE JEDI. Give it up for the one and only Admiral Ackbar and Nien Nunb!
There have been rumors about these two making a return, but I'm glad to see some photographic proof. Not only does this help tie FORCE AWAKENS to JEDI, but it makes sense from a story standpoint to have some familiar faces in the Rebellion, even after all these years. Something tells me Abrams won't pull a JURASSIC WORLD and overdo it with the throwbacks (I said it!), but these two are most welcome!
STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS hits theaters on December 18, 2015.
