The names of characters played by John Boyega, Oscar Isaac and Daisy Ridley in Star Wars: The Force Awakens have been revealed in a set of trading cards.
Director JJ Abrams confirmed the names via some old school trading cards, in a humorous nod to when the films were first released in the 1970s.
Boyega’s card showed his character to be called Finn, with Ridley’s named Rey and Isaac’s known as Poe Dameron.
The football-like droid, seen in the recent trailer, was revealed as BB:8.
The trading cards also feature a Sith warrior named Kylo Ren.
The seventh instalment of the sci-fi saga is set about 30 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi.
The film, which reunites original stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, is scheduled to be released in cinemas on 18 December 2015. (From the BBC)
