JJ Abrams has revealed what the moon-like structure in the Force Awakens poster is called. Fans have been wondering as to whether it is another Death Star much like the one in Episode IV, and they would be right… kind of.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Abrams states, “it is very much – and it’s acknowledged as such in the movie – apparently another Death Star“. He went on to state though that “what it’s capable of, how it works, and what the threat is, is far greater than what the Death Star could have done. Starkiller Base is another step forward, technologically speaking, in terms of power”. Starkiller Base? A more powerful Death Star? I can’t wait!
