Thanks to the Internet: Official Photos of More Star Wars Characters

Thanks to the Internet! May the Fourth be with us—as some behind the scene photos of some never-been-seen-before characters of this year’s most anticipated Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. The project is known for mouth-wide-shout-ing the details from the very beginning. But, then some details were revealed little by little—starting from the title, the Internet bombing teaser trailer, the first few characters (Finn, Rey, and Poe), then another trailer, and now more characters and sets.

Poe Dameron with his X-Wing fighter

01-PoeDameron-VanityFairOscar Isaac dressed in Resistance (new Rebel Alliance) pilot uniform is hanging on his ‘seemingly’ trusted X-wing fighter. No doubt, his Poe Dameron looks like a hero now.

Oscar Isaac memakai seragam pilot Resistance (Rebel Alliance terbaru) sambil bergelantungan di X-wing fighter andalannya. Tak diragukan lagi, dia nampak jagoan.

Rey pilots her speeder somewhere in (perhaps) Jakku


Look at J.J. Abrams directing Daisy Ridley as Rey while she’s riding her speeder in the midst of some marketplace in (perhaps) Jakku. This scene is familiar (we’ve seen it on the first teaser trailer), but look at those pedestrians. Aren’t they typical Star Wars citizen we wanna meet? With practical effects and costumes—they make a better Halloween this year.

Sekarang lihatlah J.J. Abrams mengarahkan Daisy Ridley sebagai Rey saat mengendarai speedernya di tengah (semacam) pasar di Jakku. Adegan ini nampak familiar (sudah ada di teaser trailer pertamanya), tapi coba lihat tokoh lainnya. Bukankah mereka makhluk-makhluk Star Wars yang kita inginkan? Dengan efek praktis dan kostum yang siap dipakai Halloween tahun ini.

That Chrometrooper is (officially) Captain Phasma


They finally revealed what role our Brienne of Tarth, Gwendoline Christie, will play. That previously anonymous chrometrooper is Captain Phasma—who belongs to the First Order (the new equivalent of Empire).

Akhirnya peran si Brienne of Tarth, Gwendoline Christie, diungkapkan juga. Sang ‘chrometrooper’ tanpa nama yang sempat muncul di trailer bernama Captain Phasma—pengikut First Order (versi teranyar dari Empire).

Lupita Nyong’o in (possibly) mo-cap is Maz Kanata


They also revealed an image of Oscar winner, Lupita Nyong’o with dots on her face indicating that she’ll be a CGI character. Her character, Maz Kanata, is currently unknown of her affiliation, but judging from her band of misfits, she might be a leader of pirates—Jabba the Hut, people?

Foto terbaru Lupita Nyong’o juga sudah ditampilkan—lengkap dengan titik-titik di wajahnya, mengindikasikan bahwa ia akan jadi karakter CGI. Karakternya, Maz Kanata, sampai sekarang belum diketahui afiliasinya, tapi kalau menengok dari gerombolannya, ia seperti pimpinan perompak—Jabba the Hut?

Galactic travelers, smugglers, and others on Maz Kanata’s castle.


Vanity Fair revealed an intriguing image supporting Nyong’o’s image above—these are the bands of misfits in Maz Kanata’s castle. Behold! Their costumes. Their make-ups.

Vanity Fair juga mengungkapkan gambar yang senada dengan foto Nyong’o—gerombolan (nampaknya) perompak di kastil Maz Kanata. Perhatikan kostum dan make-upnya.

Kylo Ren is officially Adam Driver

06-KyloRen-VanityFairQuestions that linger the whole time: Who portrays the slender (seemingly) bad guy, Kylo Ren, with a three-pronged red lightsaber? Now, we got the answer. Girls star, Adam Driver got a look. This is the most interesting revelation by far! ‘Cause Kylo Ren is already menacing just in few seconds.

Pertanyaan besar selama ini: Siapa yang memerankan penjahat kurus, Kylo Ren, dengan lighsaber model barunya? Kini kita punya jawaban. Bintang serial ‘Girls’, Adam Driver-lah pemerannya. Inilah fakta yang paling keren sejauh ini! Alasannya? Belum-belum Kylo Ren sudah nampak mengancam hanya dalam beberapa detik.

However, the finest of all is:

J.J. Abrams Kills Jar Jar Binks!

That’s obvious! Abrams revealed his idea to kill Jar Jar Binks. See his original idea to Vanity Fair below.

“I have a thought about putting Jar Jar Binks’s bones in the desert there. I’m serious! Only three people will notice, but they’ll love it.”

Jelas sekali! Abrams menyampaikan keinginannya untuk membunuh Jar Jar Binks. Coba simak pernyataannya pada Vanity Fair di atas!

So, brace yourself, fanboy! May the Force be with you!

  1. I’ve heard about these. It turns out I may have been half-right after all about Gwendoline Christie. I was theorizing that she was going to be the mysterious character with the three-bladed lightsaber (who I presume is the villain). Apparently I was wrong about the specific individual she’d play but I was correct in assuming she’d be one of the villains. This should be interesting to see. Come to think of it, it does seem like an interesting choice that they’re now actually trying to give the Stormtroopers personalities rather than simply casting them as anonymous henchmen.
