You’ve seen the new Star Wars Trailer 189 times, right? Well watch it again, because it’s awesome.
Super rad! But who exactly were those dudes in the Black Armor? They’re badasses. Grade-A badasses.
Lucasfilm has officially trademarked the phrase “Shadow Trooper” which is interesting because Shadow Troopers have appeared in different forms within the comic books and a tonne of video games. Sometimes they have lightsabers, but usually they’re just super elite Stormtroopers who can actually hit their targets.
Seriously guys? Come on.
We’ll have to wait until December to find out exactly what these guys are, but based on LucasFilm’s use of them in the trailer AND the trademark? They’re going to be cool and probably a big part of the story. Please let some of them have lightsabers.
