Today, the all-new issue of Empire hits the shelves, and with it comes the final round of pictures and info from [Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens](tag:711158) for fans to cling to until Force Friday next week. The latest cover is an exclusive for Empire subscribers, and features the newest little droid to join the cast, BB-8, looking sharp and ready for action.
Two extra stills show John Boyega as Finn, a young, runaway First Order stormtrooper who somehow comes into possession of the Skywalker family lightsaber, and one-third of the movie's featured new trio. In the first shot, Finn moves in on a target, showing off the new stormtrooper blaster.
The next shot features Finn on the desert planet of Jakku, grasping at the jacket that he may have gotten from Poe Dameron.
While it's just a BTS shot, this photo looks epic and almost iconic -- a young hero looking to the sunlight, whose life is about to change drastically.
