New Image With Finn and an Illustration with Max von Sydow’s Character from Star Wars: The Force Awakens


The guys from got their hands on two new book covers from the Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens series, which reveal new image with Finn taking gun point in The Millennium Falcon, as well as what appears to be our first look (book illustration) at Max von Sydow’s character in official promo material…


The first book with Finn on the cover is titled “Finn & The First Order” and is from the World of Reading series:

The more interesting cover is the one from yet another “Look $ Find” book, which showcases 4 illustrations depicting different sequences from the movie:

BookTop left is the outside of the Resistance Base that was shot at Greenham Common, featuring Han Solo and Chewbacca. Top right is the interior of the same base with Leia, Han, Finn, Ackbar and several other familiar faces. Bottom left is Maz Kanata’s castle with the creatures we’ve seen from the pages of Vanity Fair. And in the bottom right you can see Poe Dameron and BB-8 speaking with an old man that looks exactly like Max von Sydow’s character.

MvSAs you probably remember during our first podcast episode we showed you a sketch with Max von Sydow’s character and how exactly he will appear in The Force Awakens (HERE).


From this illustration it seems that Poe is seeking a secret council with MvS’s character during the First Order purge of the village.

      If this is true is a epic disaster. You mean to tell me we get one tiny shot with Luke. Wtf. I would absolutely not be excited about this.

      • November 9, 2015 at 8:46 pm

        I am perfectly fine with Luke being in the movie for a quick cameo. Actually, the more I see of TFA, the more I’m hoping it will not rely too much on the Big 3: I feel really intrigued by the new characters and, while I value the nostalgia-factor, I really want this to be their story.

      • November 9, 2015 at 9:35 pm

        I do not think it will be a quick cameo. But if he’s going to train someone, We’ll get plenty of Luke in VIII.

        Then there is 3 movies you can watch that feature Luke, if that’s all you think Star Wars should be about and never anybody else.

      I read this nearly half a year ago, it fits everything we’ve seen since, I believe this is an entire overview of the movie.

      Yeah, man…I have a Bad Feeling About this..a movie about a lost jedi saber?…

        George Lucas did tell Hamill in the 80’s that he would like him to hand down ‘Excalibur’ to the next generation.

          But I think that he said this in a metaphorical way

  • November 9, 2015 at 6:44 pm

    Aha! Finally, something that explains the village sequence a little more. And I bet that was so fun for Mr. Boyega.

  • November 9, 2015 at 7:43 pm

    Oh ho! It was Poe! Err… ahem. I didn’t see Poe being the one to talk to Sydow! Nice.

    My guess is the Vicar (or whatever MVS character turns out to be) is an underground resistance member who first calls in the finding of Luke’s lightsaber. They are caught off guard when the First Order shows up but they sneak BB-8 out just in time. Rey finds BB-8 and the saber, the vicar is killed and Poe is brought to the Finalizer to be interrogated.

    Finn manning the Falcon’s cannon, Rey behind the controls, BB-8 in tow. The Jakku chase through the Super Star Destroyer (end of act 1).

    wtf? people are getting wiped out outside, and poe’s having a sitdown with von sydow? get out there and save some dudes.

    • November 10, 2015 at 6:35 am

      I’m guessing he’s preventing himself from being caught by the First Order, or would Poe throw himself at the troops and risk getting lasered to a crisp for resisting arrest?

    “Hear me baby? Hold together…” -Finn

  • November 9, 2015 at 9:08 pm

    my guess is that Lor san Tekka is a contact with the resistance, so after escaping , Poe get in touch with him to get rescue on its way…

  • November 9, 2015 at 10:22 pm

    I would prefer not to see that photo of Finn but, anyway… it’s everywhere 😛

    • November 10, 2015 at 1:27 am

      Why? Spoiler?

      • November 10, 2015 at 8:43 am

        Nah. Just during the film to say: Oh man, look! Finn in the torret!!!
        It’s silly, I know…element of surprise…

  • November 10, 2015 at 1:45 am

    So I’m confused…. MvS is on Jakku or no? I’ve always thought it is very strange we have never seen him or heard anything of him….. he’s either an extremely important character…. or… as it’s seeming to me now, just a brief Jakku character in the first act? That we probably will never see again? (just seems weird that he was among the first cast announced and being of his stature… that he is just a tiny role) …. hmmm

    • November 10, 2015 at 4:35 am

      He’s always been on Jakku. Everything about his character from the very first rumor places him on Jakku with, or relatively close to Rey. This picture just reinforces everything we’ve already heard.

    • November 10, 2015 at 5:27 am

      I’m guessing he’s where she got her accent.

      • November 10, 2015 at 10:05 pm


        • November 11, 2015 at 9:05 am

          Probably not her looks though but MVS was considered pretty studly a quarter of a century ago.

    To all the people that think Rey is the sole main protagonist. “We simply approached this narrative from the point of view that this is a story about a young man and a young woman, not with the idea that we can do anything we want.” – JJ Abrams from his Wired Interview

  • November 10, 2015 at 5:26 am

    So he’s Unkar? Looks a lot like Count Dooku too.

    • November 10, 2015 at 6:30 am

      A striking resemblance to both the Count and (OT) Obi Wan. Curious to know who he is…

      • November 10, 2015 at 10:23 am

        I’m guessing the guy who raised Rey and taught her to be a scavenger. I expected a bigger part but Terence Stamp got a similar treatment in the prequels.
