Female stormtroopers are canon, as previously seen in John Jackson Miller’s Star Wars: A New Dawn. Though they haven’t appeared in Star Wars Rebels, perhaps the long-awaited reveal will come in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
According to team at Jedi News, 30-year-old actor Amybeth Hargreaves might be wearing the modified stormtrooper armor, as seen in the 88-second teaser. The piece of information comes to us from a listing at Spotlight, UK’s leading casting resource.
“2014, Film, Storm Trooper, STAR WARS, Disney, J.J. Abrams” appears in her credits section.
Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
