A new stormtrooper is to be introduced in Star Wars: Episode VIII.

Known as The Executioner, Making Star Wars said the new trooper will end up as a major fan favourite.

Here’s a description of the character from the site: “He has a matte black line that goes over half his mask on one side that sets him apart. The Executioner’s weapon is not unlike FN-2199’s at the handle but it has three spinning blades on the end that are said to be like something out of Phantasm (think of the crazy blades that come out of the spheres in those films). We think he has a shield but we haven’t been able to confirm if he actually uses it in the film or not.”

Director Rian Johnson is currently in post production on the film which is set for release in December 2017.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
