Star Wars: The Force Awakens Character Names Revealed

Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens

The character names for Star Wars: The Force Awakens have been released in a very cool way.

We've all see the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and we have all seen the endless stream of questions that it raised.

Well the powers that be have decided to give us all an early Christmas present by answering one of the biggest questions, who are the characters in the trailer? To do this they decided to make a proper event of it by creating some classic trading cards, complete with stills from the trailer as well as collectors numbers.

When asked if there was some significance regarding the numbers chosen for the cards JJ Abrams replied "Yes". 

So What do the cards tell us? Let's find out.

#76 Finn on the run!

So we now know that John Boyega's character is called Finn, also the title "Finn on the Run!" suggests that the Stormtrooper outfit may not be his own.

John Boyega is Finn

 

#74 Rey on her speeder

Daisy Ridley is Rey, yet again we have no surname for this character but many believe it will be a familiar one when it is released.

Poe Damerson

 

#53 Poe Damerson in his X-Wing

Oscar Isaac is Poe Dameron, a pilot in the Rebel Alliance. Whilst we still don't know what role he will play in the plot it is largely believed by the Star Wars community that his character will be similar to that of Han Solo, sitting on the edge of the Light/Dark side divide.
