Star Wars: The Force Awakens is now, incredibly, a mere month away from release – and if you can hardly believe this fact, prepare to be even more excited: here’s an exclusive first look at new character Constable Zuvio.
A few bits of merchandising aside, this is the first time we have clapped eyes on the character, who is described by LucasFilm as a “vigilant law officer on a mostly lawless world” who “keeps order in a frontier trading post”. He’s also apparently “tough and humorless”.
That’s about all we know of the mysterious Zuvio, who has not yet appeared in any trailers or official marketing material for the film. There’s no word on what race of alien he is. There’s no word on which actor is playing him, nor on where he’s based – though judging from this photo, it’s a reasonable bet that he lives to be on the desert planet Jakku.
As with everything on this movie, J.J. Abrams and Disney are keeping their sabacc cards close to their chests. There are more secrets to be uncovered in our Force Awakens issue, due out on November 26. And all will be revealed when – and we can still hardly believe it is actually happening – Star Wars: The Force Awakens is finally released, on December 17 in the UK, and December 18 in the US.
