Over the past few weeks Star Wars fans have been enjoying the excellent teaser trailer for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, re-watching, analyzing and discussing it to no end. In it, we see five brand new characters whom we don't even know their names... until today. Entertainment Weekly has partnered with Lucasfilm to officially unveil the names of each character in the trailer, and in a very unique, retro way. Much in the same way scenes and characters from A New Hope appeared on Topps trading cards released with that film, they have now released 8 cards for The Force Awakens, some of which feature the names of the new, unknown characters! Check them out below, but of course, SPOILERS if you don't want to know anything about the movie:
“I’m only sorry we couldn't give everyone a stick of gum," Director J.J. Abrams remarked to EW. He also confirmed that the numbers on the card do hold some type of significance. EW also mentioned that more cards could be on the way.
And, I must say, Wow! This is awesome! Big thanks to Lucasfilm and Entertainment Weekly for sharing this awesome info and further teasing us! And in case you haven't figured it out yet:
John Boyega as Finn
Daisy Ridley as Rey
Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron
Adam Driver(Presumably) as Kylo Ren
and BB-8 as himself
You can see all of them in action, and whole lot more when The Force Awakens hits theaters December 18th, 2015!
