Since Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars has graced the cover of Time Magazine, and now with The Force Awakens getting released, R2-D2 and BB-8 are featured on the cover of the magazine's latest issue.
Time Magazine released a look at the cover and inside article shoot in a behind-the-scenes video as well as a batch of cast images which includes a new look at Mark Hamill.
“The moment you meet BB-8, you build up some form of weird human connection,” Marco Grob said, the photographer for Time. “It has one eye that has this really cute way of looking at you. It’s just incredible.”
The issue goes on sale December 14th.
"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" has a December 18, 2015 release directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer.
