EPISODE VII: CHANNELLING THAT "A NEW HOPE' VIBE!

A new life and new dangers for Finn (John Boyega) in THE FORCE AWAKENS. EP VII imagery: Disney.

From watching the new teaser trailer (a zillionth time!) for THE FORCE AWAKENS, its clear to see that J.J. Abrams and his film's costume designers are clearly continuing to weave the connective tissues between their new STAR WARS universe and that originally created by George Lucas and his first costume designer John Mollo- specifically here with John Boyega's ex-Stormtrooper turned hero character of Finn, getting out of the bulky white combat armour and into something that's very heroically familiar to that worn by Luke Skywalker from A New Hope.
