Star Wars: The Force Awakens Character Names Have Been Revealed In A Fantastic Way


If you’ve been wondering what to call the ball droid in the new teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, you can stop wondering. Entertainment Weekly reports that J.J. Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy mocked up some Topps-style cards for the characters. Our favorite ball droid just happens to go by the designation BB-8. Other character names include:

  • Crazy lightsaber guy: Kylo Ren
  • Daisy Ridley: Rey
  • Oscar Isaac’s Rebel Pilot: Poe Dameron
  • John Boyega: Finn

People are already speculating on the lack of last names and what that might mean. Skywalker, anyone?

I can already see people running to grab Twitter handles for Kylo Ren, Poe Dameron, Finn and Rey — and there’s better be a BB-8 twitter already, or I’ll be very disappointed with the internet!

Head on over to Entertainment Weekly to see the cards. And yes, the numbers on the cards mean something—analyze the hell out of it guys.
