‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’: New Photos of Adam Driver, John Boyega, C-3PO

From a closer look at John Boyega’s runaway stormtrooper to C-3PO’s updated gear, new photos from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” offer a better portrait of the film. Entertainment Weekly unveiled the images from this week’s issue — their annual Fall Movie Preview — on Wednesday.

We also learn how Lucasfilm president and producer Kathleen Kennedy persuaded J.J. Abrams into directing “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” after his initial refusal.

“In the context of talking about story and laying out what we were thinking, I said one thing to him, ‘Who is Luke Skywalker?'” Kennedy told EW. “He said, ‘Oh my God, I just got the chills. I’m in.'”

In this image, Daisy Ridley’s scavenger Rey and Boyega’s stormtrooper Finn escape from The First Order.
