Lucasfilm has just released a brand new image from Star Wars: The Last Jedi for your fandom enjoyment! The marketing thus far has relied heavily on some behind the scenes photos as well as the adorable Porgs which you will be able to find at a store near you.
Thus far, Lucasfilm has done a great job keeping all spoilers and story elements away from any of their marketing. A Drew Struzan inspired puzzle has just been released for #TheLastJedi and it looks incredible. It features pretty much every main character who will star in this film including General Leia, #LukeSkywalker, Kylo Ren, Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, Captain Phasma, and newcomer Rose. In fact, a lot of fans are clamoring for this puzzle to be the central movie poster for this upcoming sequel. You can check out it down below:
A New Image Gives Us A Better Glimpse At Snoke And His Praetorian Guards
After the fantastic movie poster that was released during this years Star Wars Celebration, fans have been asking for more pictures of these characters including ones related towards #SupremeLeaderSnoke. Recently we’ve been given some great close-ups of Snoke’s personal body guards called the Praetorian Guards.
While similar in color to Emperor Palpatine’s Royal Guards, these Guards however are more fit to fight and appear to be a threat for anyone who wishes to stand against the #FirstOrder. Thanks to Instagram user newsfromjakku, you can see the latest up close shots of Snoke and his Praetorian Guards along with Kylo Ren:
What Can We Take From This Image
I really like the design from this image. The red and black coloration mixes well into the background and are the primary colors of what we’ve seen of the #darkside. Having Kylo Ren at the forefront along with Snoke looming in the back gives us a better understanding of Kylo Ren’s character. We already know from #TheForceAwakens that #KyloRen still has to finish his training with Snoke so it makes a great deal of sense for both of these central villains to be together in any kind of marketing strategy.
What’s also interesting to note here is Kylo Ren’s helmet. We assume that Ren’s helmet had been destroyed while on Starkiller Base. Also, all of the marketing including the first teaser showed Ren’s shattered helmet as well as him not wearing one. Could he have constructed a new one? Absolutely. It’s also possible that he has a whole shelf full of them. Either way, it’s nice to see Ren without his helmet because it shows the innocence of a boy who once trained under Luke Skywalker and was once thought to be the ‘chosen one.’
