Another day, another image from Star Wars: Episode VII, but this one just happens to be the best thing I’ve seen from the movie so far. It depicts a lightsaber duel under the Millenium Falcon with a Darth Vader-like figure fighting a Rebel with a green lightsaber. It’s epic looking, and for a second I get excited but then I remember the prequels and how flat they were visually (not to mention narratively). Then I get excited all over again because there’s no way this will be like that, right? They can’t possibly make the same mistakes can they?
Yesterday we saw the Chrome Troopers (as a follow up to the new Stormtroopers and the costume designs for Han Solo). But now we have this gorgeous image, besotted somewhat by an ill-conceived watermark on the part of the hosting site. Hit the jump to take a look at the new Star Wars: Episode 7 lightsaber duel image. The film stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Harrison Ford, Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Lupita Nyong’o, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Andy Serkis, Gwendoline Christie, Miltos Yerolemou, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, and Max von Sydow. It opens on December 18th, 2015.
