Earlier this week Empire Magazine teased that Star Wars was going to be be featured in their upcoming issue, and this morning they revealed two stunning foldout covers that feature characters Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens prominently. One is a villain cover which includes Captain Phasma, Kylo Ren and General Hux in a First Order hanger bay surrounded by Stormtroopers and TIE Fighters. The other is a hero cover, which shows Finn, Rey, Poe Dameron and BB-8 standing on Jakku near the Millennium Falcon. You can both of them in full below:
Now, as awesome as both of these covers are, I must point out two odd espects about them that a lot of you have probably already noticed. Firstly, on the left side of the villain you can see that the Stormtroopers are Original Trilogy Stormtroopers and not the new First Order Stormtroopers that have been shown to be appearing in the film. Secondly, on the hero cover, the Millennium Falcon's radar dish is round and not rectangular as we've seen in The Force Awakens. Whether these are mistake or simply subtle callbacks to the Original Trilogy is unclear, but worth noting.
Both of these covers will be on newsstands next Thursday, August 27th!
