Force Post! “The Force Awakens” names names

Feel like a little bit Star Wars news to brighten up your day? Why wouldn’t you?

Word has come through from Entertainment Weekly that names of some of the characters in the latest Star Wars chapter have been revealed. This comes a good few weeks after the teaser trailer that broke every record on the planet.  With that in mind, what the heck am I waiting for? Here are the names!

  • BB-8, the ball droid
  • Poe Dameron, the X-wing pilot (Oscar Isaacs)
  • Kylo Ren, the mystery wielder of the “broad-saber”
  • Rey, the scavenger who was previously code-named “Kira” (Daisy Ridley)
  • Finn, a man “on the run” (John Boyega)

So we can finally put a few names to faces, in particular to the cyaracters played by John Boyega, Oscar Isaacs and Daisy Ridley. And we now have a name for the sinister sith with the controversial lightsaber! Granted we don’t know who’s playing him but that will all come in good time. At least we know what to call that crazy rolling droid.

Cast members yet to be named include Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow. Also, who is Harrison Ford gonna be playing? Just kidding, he’s like an orc or something right?

Is J.J. Abrams keeping you interested?
