Empire Magazine’s Exclusive Poe Dameron Photo & Star Wars Covers


Empire Magazine released another exclusive image from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens set, this one of Poe Dameron, as well as a sneak peek of the covers for their upcoming Star Wars-themed issue.

With the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens less than a month away, the hype is only increasing with new photos and page spreads from popular media outlets. Entertainment Weekly had their week in the twin suns, and lately Empire Magazine has taken up the torch with exclusive on-set photos of characters like Constable Zuvio and Captain Phasma. Today, they released a photo of Poe Dameron being “escorted” by a Stormtrooper through the bowels of what appears to be a First Order ship.

We’ve seen hints of this scene before, in the behind the scenes footage shown at Star Wars Celebration and a photo released by Entertainment Weekly. In EW’s photo, the Stormtrooper next to a bloodied and beaten Poe is Finn, and the two appear to be having a heated conversation. It wouldn’t be surprising if the Stormtrooper in the photo released by Empire is Finn, as well (and maybe Poe is who Finn gets his Resistance jacket from…?).

Also today, Empire revealed six different covers for their upcoming Star Wars-themed issue, each one featuring a The Force Awakens character (and in one variant’s case, two characters). Check them out below.

Empire has a special limited edition cover, as well, exclusive to locations in the UK. It comes with a Hasbro figure of Kylo Ren. Check out the mockup below.

The magazine itself will be worth picking up in any form you can get it in; Empire promises it will be filled to the sarlacc with awesome behind the scenes insights.

"…issue 319 is stuffed to the absolute brim with Force Awakens coverage, featuring interviews with practically everyone involved in the film. Read revealing insights from JJ Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, even Mark Hamill – a man conspicuous by his absence in LucasFilm’s marketing so far."

This jam-packed Star Wars issue from Empire Magazine will be available November 26th.
