STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS (2015): Empire Magazine Dual Cover Special

Empire releases alternate covers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens special. Empire Magazine keeps the blockbuster coverage coming, with a pair of alternate covers to their upcoming Episode VII special. The first gate-fold features the heavy hitters of the First Order: Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie), and General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson).

Empire’s The Force Awakens cover, First Order variant:

Left to right: Gwendoline Christie, Adam Driver, and Domhnall Gleeson, as the kool kids on the Dark Side of the bus.

The second features three of the heroic new class: Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac). I’d mention BB-8, but until it earns more than mascot status, I’d sooner give a shout-out to the Millennium Falcon….

Empire’s The Force Awakens cover, hero variant:

Left to right: John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, and Oscar Isaac, as the Honor Rollers, up front.

Both versions will serve to highlight Empire’s Winter Special preview, covering such late season releases as The Martian, Pan, and The Hateful Eight; but they would all be hard pressed to compete with the 800lb midichlorian Gorilla on the cover(s).
