The next ‘Star Wars’ movie comes out in December, but fans wanting to go into ‘The Force Awakens’ without knowing any details should skip Halloween. Costumes of the new ‘Star Wars’ characters come with spoilers on their packaging! Uh-oh!
Uh, Spoiler Alert! When Star Wars fans go shopping for Halloween costumes this year, they might end up turning to the Dark Side — by learning all the details about The Force Awakens before the movie comes out. Brand new merchandise of the upcoming movie reveals key plot details and character backgrounds! Oh no — what would Yoda think?!
Every Star Wars movie comes with a Death Star’s worth of toys. That’s no surprise, but it’s shocking that some of the Episode VII Halloween costumes reveal details about the new movie, reports Uproxx. If you don’t want to know more about The Force Awakens, stop reading and whatever you do, dress up as ghost or Freddy Krueger in tribute to the late Wes Craven this year. Spoilers ahoy!
Rey, played by Daisy Ridley, lives inside an AT-AT on planet Jakku, reports Star Wars Episode 7 News. She is a talented pilot, as she’s reportedly driving the TIE fighter in one of the trailers. Finn, played by John Boyega, was the first person seen in the very first trailer — he’s the panicked Storm Trooper. It turns out that he starts the movie out as a Storm Trooper and isn’t undercover, as some fans thought.
As for the film’s reported bad guys, Kylo Ren (played by Adam Driver) is not just his name — it’s also his title. Kylo belongs to The Knights of Ren, a collective of Sith baddies. He also doesn’t have much control over the Force, but with his impressive lightsabre, he might not need it.
There’s also Captain Phasma, the chrome Storm Trooper portrayed by Gwendoline Christie. She reportedly has some connection to the Force and is out to get all the power of the Dark Side for herself! Whoa!
Fans who want to know more can search through all the new toys, merch and costumes for themselves. For those who want to go into the movie and be completely surprised, they might as well put on a Storm Trooper helmet until the film’s release on Dec. 15th.
Are you excited for the new Star Wars movie, HollywoodLifers? Do these spoilers ruin it for you or do they make you want to see the movie even more?
