Check Out Empire's Light Side/Dark Side 'The Force Awakens' Covers
"Have you felt it? The dark side, and the light." Which side are do you stand on? Empire magazine has just revealed their two new photos for Lucasfilm's upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and they actually look pretty damn cool. One cover features three characters from the Dark Side - Kylo Ren, played by Adam Driver, with his mask and red cross-saber; Captain Phasma, played by Gwendoline Christie; and General Hux, played by Domhnall Gleeson. The other cover is for the Light Side (the good guys, yay!) - Rey front and center, played by Daisy Ridley, flanked by Finn played by John Boyega, and Poe Dameron, played by Oscar Isaac. Each one has an extended "pull out" side piece, which completes the image. Lots of tie fighters! And the Millennium Falcon. The line-up shown this way looks awesome. Nice score, Empire.
Here's the two new Empire cover images for Star Wars: The Force Awakens - click each for more info.
