New Star Wars: The Force Awakens images released

Star Wars The Force Awakens Kylo Ren Teaser 2

International Star Wars day brings new cast shots.

The fourth of May is international Star Wars day and to celebrate a host of new images have been revealed. The world is ready for Star Wars: The Force Awakens to be released and since the latest trailer was released expectations have been catapulted into the stratosphere and the new images give us a glimpse of the characters on set.

First of all we were treated to first look at Adam Driver (Inside Llewyn Davis, Frances Ha, What If) as Kylo Ren. Ok so we have seen Kylo Ren before but this is the first look without the mask.

By the looks of it this is on the same ice planet as we have seen in the trailer, is it Hoth? Probably not but the structure in the background certainly looks similar.

Next we got a candid shot of Harrison Ford (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Blade Runner) as Han Solo, Peter Mayhew (Star Wars, Dragon Ball GT, Terror) as Chewbacca, Daisy Ridley (Blue Season, Scrawl, Silent Witness) as Rey and John Boyega (Attack the Block, Imperial Dream, Junkhearts) as Finn. This is a great shot of the new cast with the old, seemingly on board the Millenium Falcon.

The images show a relaxed cast on set and are just the kind of images fans will love to see.

These images come following the release earlier in the week of the official Star Wars collectible packaging design whoch you can see below.

It's safe to say that we'll be seeing endless updates for the Force Awakens between now and it's release date in December so try not to get too sick of it between now and then. What are we saying? It's impossible to get bored of new Star Wars releases.
