With Mark Hamill recently giving us a pretty good idea of when to expect the trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the marketing campaign for the film appears to be ramping up a bit as the film’s release draws closer. With that comes a couple of new images from the film that recently popped up (via makingstarwars) on the interwebs. The images show Captain Phasma standing proudly with her Stormtroopers, and General Hux looking very interested in whatever it is that has caught his eye. You can check out the images below.

One thing fans hope to see is more of Captain Phasma, and perhaps see some examples of why she is to be feared. In Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the character didn’t really do much at all. She had minimal lines and the story probably wouldn’t have missed her. Hopefully that changes and she is given a more involved role. As for General Hux, I’m sure we’ll get some great exchanges between him and Kylo Ren again. I also have a feeling that Hux is going to to be killed in The Last Jedi, and most likely it will come at the hands of Kylo Ren.

A few big payoffs for fans could come with this film. After being teased with a mere glimpse of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we should get to see the Jedi Master back in action. There are a lot of things we should get to see in the film. My shortlist consists of wanting to see a more in depth look at the training of a Jedi. It would also be nice to know who Rey’s parents are, as this is one of the more popular mysteries that came from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens. What I want to see most of all is a showdown between Luke Skywalker and Supreme Leader Snoke. I am very interested in seeing what type of Force abilities Luke has gained over the last 30 years, and also want to see the extent of Snoke’s power.

    that what it always should look like Black, white grey and then red flashes in. That’s the problem I always had with JJ’s lens flare it’s too much color when they are this monotone world.

      Just to clarify:
      -You’re saying the shot we see looks good as it’s a matte look?
      -You want JJ to copy this for episode 9?

      • Moby85

        I’m with you by the way but JJ did cut down on lens flare in Episode 7.

        • Weresmurf

          He did indeed. I implore people to check out Star Wars Episode 3 for absolute abuse of lensflares…

          • Kindofabigdeal

            Compared to Star Trek ’09 it was tame.

      • Victor Roa

        JJ can do what he wants. But I do think he does too much reflective surface and bouncing light to simulate movement, it’s the same trick Michael Bay does with having cars running with horizontal lines or women greased up.
        My point is, the Empire’s design was more monotone, so when color actually appeared it was cue for the audience to know it’s important. Like the Emperor’s hologram in empire, or when the emperor appears in Jedi.
        And what works is, you have bad guys like Jabba or Boba Fett, but the cold unfeeling tones of the empire is enough to express that this is a structure system that just consumes everything into it’s own.

        Now we already know Snoke is all in gold, but his guards are all red, it’s still solid design work, we will see how colors and visuals play…… Rain Johnson understands color theory then JJ, but I do want JJ to be more comfortable with what he’s doing on his own.

    100% with you Seth on Phasma. Disney goes out of their way to create this badass “feminist” character, and despite that being the genisis of the character they totally pull it off and Gwendoline Christie turns out to be inspired casting…And they do virtually nothing with her. Ugh, the irony?

    Time to right that wrong.

    But my main point here actually is about Hux. When my friends ask me about my favorite new characters they are always surprised to hear Hux is 2nd only Poe for me (love Poe’s 1940s ‘crackerjack’ American fighter pilot act).

    But Hux both echoes classic Imperial baddies like Piett and Ozell, but combines them with this sociopathic rage. He makes a great one-dimensional, classic, evil Imperial general. And I hope his role is much expanded.

      I was disappointed with Phasma’s role. The trailers made her seem much more important to the story. I think a lot of fans thought she would step into the Boba Fett type role, but it just didn’t happen.

    • Weresmurf

      “And they do virtually nothing with her.”

      Welcome to every second popular character in Star Wars…

    • Markros

      What can she really do? She isn’t going to be responsible for the death of any major characters obviously, because Disney is playing it safe… UNLESS she off’s Leia…?

  • randomironicname

    So, clearly they aren’t using clones these days but that storm trooper in the middle looks pretty short and tubby. Are there not athletic standards for these guys?

  • TheOct8pus

    I wanna see Phasma in a metal bikni

    • Kindofabigdeal

      Slave Phasma? Or Mistress Phasma with a saber whip?

      • TheOct8pus

        Slave. All the way. Although she’d probably strangle everybody

  • KeroT

    I think the Stormtroopers inn the pictures looks a little bit short to be stormtroopers.

  • noahwayne0

    two of the most boring characters in the previous movie

  • SC Polt

    Wait, wait, wait…you want MORE training of the Jedi? Haven’t we had 6+ movies of training. I think the last thing Star Wars needs is another Jedi training montage. And more dialogue like:
    “I’m ready..”
    “No you still have much to learn.”
    “But I”m ready”
    “No”
    “Well I’m going to fight anyway.”

    Been there, done that. Which is my main fear with this whole trilogy, it’s going to be just a beat-for-beat reboot of the original trilogy. Ugh, Disney is going to mess it up.
