First Look At The Raid’s Iko Uwais And Yayan Ruhian In Star Wars: The Force Awakens


You may have thought we’d gotten every reveal we were going to get with J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens as we’re so close to release, but this image from one of the tie-in books provides our first official look at the characters played by Iko Uwais and Yayan Ruhian, who are best known for The Raid movies.

Ruhian plays Tasu Leech, leader of the Kanjiklub gang, while Uwais is his right hand man, Razoo Quin-Fee. The smaller image may well be their fellow Raid star Cecep Arif Rahman (“The Assassin” from the final Berandal kitchen battle), but it’s hard to tell for sure.


We don’t know a whole lot about these guys, but it has been confirmed that the Kanjiklub are a notorious intergalactic team of criminals, which suggests they’ll be causing headaches for Rey, Finn and the rest of our heroes. Though they’re clearly armed-up here, it’s probably safe to assume these lads will also be putting their incredible martial arts skills to use in the movie.

Starring Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Lupita Nyong’o and Max von Sydow, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set to be released on December 18th, 2015.
