Star Wars Celebration hasn’t even officially kicked off in Anaheim, California, but already a new tidbit about “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has trickled out of the fan gathering.
An image circulating widely on line from the convention program reveal a full body shot of the new stormtrooper armor from the J.J. Abrams film. The helmet had previously been glimpsed in the all-too-brief teaser trailer — and, before that, in some leaks – but this is our first official look at a full stormtrooper.
Of course, a new trailer is expected to be unveiled today at Star Wars Celebration, in which we’ll presumably see the Empire’s soldiers in action (let’s cross our fingers that we don’t have to wait until May 1).
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” opens Dec. 18.
