Lucasfilm announced the highly anticipated The Last Jedi panel for Star Wars Celebration Orlando today, and the film’s director Rian Johnson posted this photo from his Tumblr to share his own excitement:
That looks pretty slick!
A Twitter user thought the Stormtroopers looked a little different and ask Johnson if they have been changed.
Indeed they do look a little different to us as well. We’ll let you do the comparisons for yourself, but personally all I care about is that they are looking awesome! I am so excited for this movie!
Edit: Thanks Adam for pointing out that the Stormtrooper with his helmet raised does sort of look like Tom Hardy.
