An Imgur image with credit to the Children’s Book has revealed Princess Leia’s transformation over the last 30 years.

So far the movie has suffered numerous leaks, but none have been confirmed by Disney/Lucasfilms. The cast and crew have taken all precaution to protect the film from any leaks. Abrams has already explained the reason he revealed next to nothing in the movie trailers. He opined that the trailer “should not narrate the entire movie, hence the suspense on the Jedi master’s fate in the movie”.

It will release on 18 December in the US, Japan, Spain and Venezuela. Thailand and Philippines and some European countries will get to see the movie early on 16 December.
