Following on from the Vanity Fair article, which revealed a fair amount about the upcoming movie, starwars.com added an interview with photographer Annie Leibowitz who took the photographs and revealed one more character – Supreme Leader Snoke
This image shows the master of mo-cap Andy Serkis in the role, obviously capturing for a CG enhanced part. With the title cone a few questions; with a title like that he must be in the First Order – dies this mean aliens have a more prominent role in the post-imperial army? Also, with Serkis confirming he did the voiceover for the first teaser does that then mean that this character is a force sensitive. Can’t wait to find out!!
Here are the other images, which came out a while back…
This is Captain Phasma, played by Gwendoline Christie, the epic looking trooper glimpsed in the new teaser. Beyond the name and actress confirm we don’t know much else as yet.
We also got to see Kylo Ren without his mask for the first time, as played by Adam Driver, escorted by two of the new Snow troopers.
Also we saw Lupita N’yongo getting all dotted up for her role as ‘pirate queen’ Maz Kanata, again no details on how she’ll look in the finished production yet.
And lastly we got a look at the motley crew of aliens in her ‘castle’ – nice to see the use of practical effects in use here.
Very exciting stuff!!
