Fans are divided over the photo. Some think it’s just a shiny black helmet, but others believe it to be a Death Star trooper’s helmet on a Death Star control panel.
As the movie is set many years before the Death Star was finished, it wouldn’t make much sense for it to feature in the upcoming prequel. Still, we’ll find out for sure when the film arrives in theaters on May 25, 2018.
