The villains of Star Wars: The Force Awakens get featured

It appears that Empire Magazine will be knocking another major scoop out of the park. Following the major cover stories on Batman v Superman and X-Men, Empire Magazine is doing another cover story, this time on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. 

In the October issue of Empire, the villains of Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be heavily featured, as evidenced by the release of the cover image showing Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson), Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie), and the forces of the First Order.

The cover also shows the quote from the film, “There has been an awakening. Have you felt it? The dark side, and the light.” This has led many to believe that this simply won’t be a cover story on the film’s villains, but the film’s good guys as well, and an alternate cover should be released soon depicting the protagonists of the film. 

The issue goes on sale in the United Kingdom on Aug. 27, but details will leak soon enough. Check out the cover image below!
