A long time ago, in a galaxy that wasn’t far away at all, but actually right in the UK, there lived a young Stormtrooper (and possible Jedi warrior; how else do you explain that lightsaber action?) who posed for an education-themed stock photo shoot.
John Boyega, who, as one of the lead characters in the new ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ has been recently rocketed to A-list celebrity status, has been identified as the star of this stock photo shoot on Getty.
Isn’t he adorable? See how he actively engages with his peers at a Future Leaders of the Jedi High Council meeting.
Here he is using mind control to make the blond boy write on the paper.
And again, in line for his first day at Stormtrooper school (we all know where that career path leads him…).
The photographer who captured these images, Chris Schmidt, shared this awesome memory on his Facebook page.
Hey, everyone’s gotta start somewhere. And the kid does have one helluva smile.
