Ok, who else is pumped about the release of the new Star Wars movie? As kid of the 80’s and a massive Star Wars nerd it’s been such a long and agonizing wait since the first trailers was released. But to be completely honest I was a bit skeptic to this movie when I first heard the news. However, after have seen all the clips and trailers, I have to admit that Mr. Abrams and the guys Disney seems to have managed to capture the feel of the old movies while at the same modernizing the saga quite heavily with the latest technology. Something that I personally feel that episodes 1-3 just didn’t accomplish.

So it premiers in Europe tomorrow, Wednesday,(and in the US on Friday, if I’m not mistaken) and tickets are of course already booked! And to celebrate this, what I feel is the biggest movie release ever, I’ve rounded up 33 really tremendous, mostly fan made, illustrations of Kylo Ren, Rey, Finn, BB-8, Poe, Captain Phasma and the other characters from “Star Wars – The Force Awakens”.

Oh, and you can of course check out all of our previous Star Wars roundups in the archive.

    Great illustrations, not so great film, imho.

      What are you talking about, it’s the best Star Wars film of them all! Leaving aside Rei (who’s Clearly the best Star Wars hero in the series) Tie fighter, X-Wing, and Millennium Falcon dog fights, a Mega-Deathstar, the return of Han, Leia, Chewbacca, and Luke, and a Lightsaber duel in the Snow, what more could you ask for!!!

        All the things you mention are surface elements – the story is terrible. I won’t go too far into it, as you have a right to your opinion of course, but this movie was about rebooting a franchise, not making a good film. It looks fine, yes, but it’s like a beautiful facade with simple things holding it up – like Disneyworld itself, coincidentally
