Star Wars: The Force Awaken’s Ello Asty is a Beastie!

By  | 

Apparently the text on Ello Asty’s helmet is a tribute to the classic Beastie Boys’ record according to our friends at YakFace:

Ello Asty is “Hello Nasty.” Genius!

It is like Admiral Ackbar once said in his youth:

Listen all of y’all it’s a sabotage.

Update:

Jared updates us:

His species is named Abednedo in Moving Target and Aftermath. The Beastie Boys song Shadrach references the Judaeo-Christian parable of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. So, he’s super Beastie.
