In Star Wars: The Force Awakens we’re going to be introduced to a new character named Major Ematt. Ematt has served with Leia since before the Battle of Yavin and still serves with her 40 years later. We learned a lot about Ematt at SDCC by meeting with a source there and grabbing lots of details. Today a source has decided to drop a piece of art for Ematt on our lap. Now, this isn’t concept art from Star Wars: The Force Awakens; I don’t know what it is from (I can only guess). It reminds me of the early ’90s RPG stuff in a way. This is what Ematt looks like right after Return of the Jedi:
Now, after we wrote about the Resistance jackets today, I have had Frank Stone’s look in the film on my mind. But I can’t recall if he has the same facial hair or not (I saw it very briefly). I have to ask the question, could Frank Stone play Major Ematt in Star Wars: The Force Awakens? Purely speculation at this point:
Hopefully very soon we find out some of the answers to new mysteries! I really want to know who is playing Ematt as he’s going to be sort of large in lots of print in the coming year.
