This is quite possibly the coolest way to release character information for a movie. Entertainment Weekly has just posted some retro images of the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens cast that finally reveals the names of some of the newcomers. The images are reminisent of the Topps trading cards created for the 1977 Star Wars.
Now we can finally put a name to a face! The soccer ball droid is ‘BB-8,’ Oscar Isaac is ‘Poe Dameron,’ the lightsaber weilding villain is named ‘Kylo Ren,’ Daisy Ridley is simply known as ‘Rey,’ (We speculate that she’s Han and Leia’s daughter.) Stormtroopers are….Stormtroopers, and John Boyega is playing ‘Finn’, who is apparently on the run.
