‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Character Names Revealed – Topps-style!

Last week, the first anything from Star Wars: The Force Awakens came in the form of a teaser trailer that told us nothing more than “stay tuned, for this will be AMAZING.” This week, J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy have decided to quench the fangirl/fanboy thirst, just a little bit, in a very clever way…

Topps-style.

In an EW Online exclusive, we can now put names to faces (yes, including the “black” Stormtrooper) and Abrams himself said there is a significance to the card’s numbers. Unsurprisingly, though, he’s staying tight-lipped on more details beyond that.

Enough talking! Let’s see some cards (in numerical order)!

BB-8

poe-dameron

Kylo-Ren

rey

Finn

Stormtroopers(I’m guessing the short one’s Finn.)

Millennium-Falcon

Pretty nifty!

I’m sure we’ll see more cards down the line showing off other characters played by the likes of Lupita N’yongo, Gwendoline Christie, Adam Driver, Max Von Sydow, and of course, the old regime represented by Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher. Until then, though, this is pretty much all we’re going to get for now as Abrams and company don’t want to give away the recipe until the film’s December 18th, 2015 release date!

Like Abrams himself says,

I’m only sorry we couldn’t give everyone a stick of gum.

What say you of these cards?
