Gone are the Rebellion and Empire. In a post-Return of the Jedi world, the good guys are the Resistance and the bad guys are the First Order. How and why? We don’t know yet, but two new images from Star Wars: The Force Awakens highlight both of these new groups.
Star Wars fans knew they were going to get news this week, they probably just thought they’d have to wait longer. There will be Star Wars at the D23 Expo Saturday but first, the new issue of Entertainment Weekly is chock full of new information on Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
