Following the extended TV spot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, some eagle eyed fans have spotted our first look at classic character Admiral Ackbar (big thanks to ComicBook for the heads up).
Check out the images below:
Admiral Ackbar was rumoured earlier in the year to be returning to the franchise, and was then confirmed by the behind the scenes video shown at San Diego Comic Con, with original star Tim Rose reprising the role.
Some other viewers have theorised that the young girl to the left of the first image is the real-life daughter of Carrie Fisher, who was rumoured to feature in the movie.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set for release on December 17th in the UK and December 18th in the States and sees J.J. Abrams directing returning stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Kenny Baker (R2-D2), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) and Tim Rose (Admiral Ackbar), in addition to Adam Driver (Girls), Oscar Isaac (A Most Violent Year), Andy Serkis (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Domhnall Gleeson (Ex Machina), John Boyega (Attack the Block), Daisy Ridley (Silent Witness), Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave), Ken Leung (Lost), Miltos Yerolemou (Game of Thrones), Max von Sydow (The Exorcist), Jessica Henwick (Spirit Warriors), Christina Chong (24: Live Another Day), Simon Pegg (Star Trek) and newcomers Crystal Clarke and Pip Andersen.
