[Spoiler] Star Wars VIII Leaked Artwork Reveals New Stormtrooper Uniform
LucasFilm has done a remarkable job controlling leaks for a widely anticipated film that will premiere on December 15, 2017. Any leaked news from Star Wars VIII, The Last Jedi has the potential to tantanlize, disappoint, and create analysis upon analysis of even the smallest kyber crystal. Now, leaked images from Episode VIII give fans another look at Supreme Leader Snoke’s guards, the First Order AT Walkers that will be used during the battle on Crait, and a new stormtrooper uniform.
The images first appeared on the Templo Jedi Aztlan Facebook page, and Star Wars News Net confirmed their validity. The one image that contains new fodder for fans is artwork of a stormtrooper that features red shoulder plates and a partially red helmet. In one of the photos, the figure referred to as a Stormtrooper Officer, is holding an axe. There has been some speculation of an "executioner stormtrooper" to be featured in The Last Jedi and this could be he or she.
Some of the images are not new and include the red guard and the First Order Walkers which resemble the AT-ATs, but are equipped with a central cannon above the cockpit. It may be that these are mainly for tie-in merchandise that will be released at a later date. Since the images have been leaked and D23 is around the corner, Lucasfilm may use the convention to confirm any theories surrounding the leaked photos.
