Pretty big spoilers dropped by VF, IMO... now we can confirm that the character formerly known as Rose is really Maz Kanata (played by Lupita Nyong'o), has Anakin/Luke's saber, and her castle is attacked at some point by Phasma, played by Gwendoline Christie.

Anyone notice the dude in the picture of the space pirates wearing an old Stormtrooper helmet painted black? Right to the left of the red dude. I kinda wish there were more "classic" aliens, or even PT aliens thrown in, but it's all good. Just from that picture alone, I can tell this castle scene will feel more like the Mos Eisley Cantina than that stupid Coruscant bar from AOTC.

Maybe Hasbro can make a FurBossk that flatulates.  :-X

So, like, is that morbidly obese Bossk up there?

"Bossk Hogg", per se?

I saw that Trandoshan and thought it was Gah Nackht with a pituitary gland problem.

As cool as the aliens are, I don't expect any of them to be the main attraction or even noticeable in the film. I remember the rollout for TPM was somewhat similar in that we saw a lot of background stuff like Tatooine street aliens before anything substantial and this is somewhat similar. So I expect A LOT more volume and variety. Though I have to say what I really wanted with this movie was some 'new' and the pirates are giving that.

Supreme Leader Snoke.

Oh man, I hope he looks like this...



Oh, wait you said Snoke, not Snork.   :(

The name really could evoke a range of images. Like?

Are we sure Lucas has nothing to do with character naming this time?

Hmm... can't say I'm a fan of the name, but at the same time I hated a lot of the Prequel names the first time I heard them too.

That last image seems a tad aggressive for the kids.  I'd be afraid to take little ones to the film.

Some pretty awesome images from THE FORCE AWAKENS in this Making Star Wars post.

Oh, and how about the return of Admiral Ackbar and Nien Nunb?!?!?!
