The Empire may have been defeated in Return of the Jedi, but in the Star Wars universe, the Dark Side will always be at work in some way, shape, or form. Now, we know a little bit more about what form it will take in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as images from the prop room at Star Wars Celebration have revealed the organizations surrounding the new Stormtroopers and TIE fighters.

It seems that, 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi, the Stormtroopers are now organized under the heading of the "First Order," while the TIE fighters are now part of the "Resistance." It will be interesting to see how deeply The Force Awakens delves into the evolution of the First Order, as well as its similarities to and differences from the Empire.

Here are some more photos from the prop room, courtesy of Collider:
