‘Star Wars’ Celebration Artwork Features Death Troopers & AT-ACTs

     May 26, 2016


With Star Wars Celebration Europe less than two months away, The Star Wars Show just unveiled the official key art for the event which is pretty fantastic because, one, it’s gorgeous and two, it features some clearer shots of new characters and vehicles.

We’ve got out first good look at the new class of AT-ATs, the AT-ACT, which stands for All Terrain Armored Cargo Transport. In addition, there are also two new classes of Stormtroopers featured – the Shoretroopers and the Deathtroopers in black armor which you might remember seeing in the Rogue One trailer.

On top of that, if you consider the big picture, the fact that we’re seeing Rey, Finn and Kylo Renn alongside the characters from Rogue One could suggest that Disney might drop some Episode 8 news at the event. At this point the only confirmed film panel is for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story with director Gareth Edwards and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy along with “some special guests,” but this is the first time we’re seeing Luke Skywalker on a poster for the new films. That’s got to mean something.


While we wait for more panel confirmations, tell us what you think of the new artwork in the comments section below. Star Wars Celebration Europe will take place in London and run from July 15th to July 17th.
