Now that we have a Star Wars movie every December, I get to talk about my favorite franchise now more than ever. A whole new generation is getting to know how awesome Star Wars universe is, so here is my little contribution.
With the Star Wars Episode 8 just around the corner, the time couldn’t be any better to talk about Star Wars troopers. Just an FYI, I don’t consider myself a Star Wars expert. I am more of a casual fan who watched all movies multiple times. However, I didn’t know that there were so many different types of stormtroopers in the Star Wars universe.
First, we have a division into Galactic Republic, Galactic Empire, and First Order troopers. Second, these troopers are categorized based on their job position. There are regular troopers, troop specialist and officers, environmental specialists, gunners, navy troopers, air force troopers, imperial troopers, and finally, there are elite troops and assassins. If this wasn’t enough, each category has at least five different troopers, but often even more than that.
If I had to choose, my favorite stormtroopers would be Emperor’s Royal Guard without a doubt. I hope that there will be more new trooper designs in the upcoming Star Wars movie, but until then I recommend checking this fantastic infographic. And then wait for the new star wars movie coming out Dec 15!
