Meet Poe Dameron and Kylo Ren! Star Wars: The Force Awakens reveals character names with mock-up trading cards
By IONA KIRBY FOR MAILONLINE
The first trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens was released at the end of last month, and left us all feeling very excited, but with a lot of unanswered questions.
Now, names of the characters we glimpsed have been revealed - and not much else.
Entertainment Weekly has released mock-up Topps trading cards featuring pictures and captions, which were created by the film's director and co-writer JJ Abrams and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy
An image of a tense looking Oscar Isaac piloting a starfighter reads: 'Poe Dameron in his X-Wing.'
And John Boyega is seen with the caption: 'Finn on the run!' The words explain why we saw the character emerge at the beginning of the teaser panting and sweating.
But what he is on the run from is not clear - nor is whether he really is a Stormtrooper or wearing the uniform for another reason.
Another character who is sure to be interesting is Kylo Ren, the name of the hooded figure we saw in the trailer armed with a red Lightsaber, as Andy Serkis's voice spoke about the dark side of the awakening Force.
It's worth noting that as red Lightsabers are used by the Sith, they are usually emblematic of the Force's dark side. Daisy Ridley's character, who we saw zipping around on a speeder, has been named as 'Rey'.
