STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS: Entire List of Character Names Possibly Released

     April 15, 2015


Tomorrow there will be Star Wars madness, but a full list of Star Wars: The Force Awakens character names may have been leaked before Star Wars Celebration even begins.

In addition to already knowing the familiar faces, the Star Wars trading cards told us that John Boyega was playing “Finn”, Daisy Ridley was “Rey”, and Oscar Isaac was “Poe Dameron”. There was also a droid named “BB-8” and a mysterious, likely Sith named “Kylo Ren”.

  • Chewbacca Photo Duble
  • Han Solo Stunt Double
  • Kira/Rey Stunt Double
  • Finn Stunt Double
  • Kylo Ren Stunt Double
  • Poe Dameron Stunt Double
  • Chewbacca Stunt Double
  • Vicar Stunt Double
  • Star Destroyer Colonel Stunt Double

So let’s point out the oddities: Rey is still referred to as “Kira”, which was a rumored name for Ridley’s character, and so it’s possible that they’re the same person with one name being a cover for the other.

Then there’s identification for some of the actors. Domhnall Gleeson is playing “The General” and Andy Serkis is “Uber”. It was rumored that Gwendonline Christie was playing a character named “Captain Phasma”, but her name isn’t listed next to the character on this list.

This still leaves us wondering on the characters for Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong’o and Max von Sydow, but there are still plenty of proper named characters to go around.

In other observations, Leia has now gone from Princess to Queen, which raises the question of whether or not there’s also a king lurking about.  Either way, it’s a nice and reasonable promotion for her.

Finally, I don’t know where a “Bus Stop” mother and son fit in, but Making Star Wars claims, “Basically Rey briefly watches a mother and her child. It doesn’t seem too significant but I speculate Rey may long for her mother when she sees their interaction.”

That’s all for the time being, but expect plenty of Star Wars news very soon including the new trailer and the first poster.
