Keep in mind that some people aren’t fans of spoilers, so remember that when sharing this article over social media…
Before you get all hyped, the following image could be a fake, but it is a well designed fake if it is… We are just a couple of weeks away from an official trailer and title reveal (supposedly) at Star Wars Celebration Chicago, but it seems that someone has let the cat out of the bag a tad bit early.
Website ComicBookMovie.com has their hands on an image that is currently making the rounds that gives us a great look at characters from Star Wars Episode IX, including C-3PO with Chewie’s bandolier and bowcaster? The image also gives us our first look at The Knights of Ren, new droids, new aliens, new characters, and a new TIE-Fighter model.
Now, before the typical cries of “Fake!” begin, it’s important to note that this isn’t a theatrical poster. Instead, it’s the sort of thing you’d find being sold in stores or adorning toy boxes. In other words, it’s promo art put together with live-action imagery, but still very spoilery when it comes to reveals!
Proceed with caution.
DON’T KEEP GOING!
TRAVEL AT YOUR OWN PERIL!!!
