J.J. Abrams has released some character names for Star Wars: The Force Awakens via mock ups of classic Star Wars trading cards. He apologised for not being able to provide the gum to go with them!
Abrams also noted that the numbering on the cards was on purpose, it could just be the order they appear in the film although others online are now trying to “decode” them.
The “trading cards” he has currently released are:
• #11 — BB-8 on the move
• #53 — Poe Dameron in his X-Wing
• #67 — Kylo Ren ignites his Lightsaber
• #74 — Rey on her Speeder
• #76 — Finn on the run
• #81 — Stormtroopers prepare for battle
• #88 — X-Wings in formation
• #96 — The Millennium Falcon
Note: We have only included the “trading cards” that reveal character names.
