Star Wars: The Force Awakens characters revealed

Over the past year Disney has been teasing all aspects of the next Star Wars film, but today they have announced a few actual details about the movie for fans to get excited about. J.J. Abrams and the rest of the crew and management behind the next epic installment to the franchise have named several major characters that will appear in the next film.

Entertainment Weekly released the names like they were trading-cards from the late 1980s, but it was a clever way to get the names out there for fans. Of the cast announced there are; Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Daisy Ridley will play Rey, Adam Driver (we assume) is Kylo Ren, John Boyega is playing Finn, and probably the most adorable of all cast members is BB-8, the rolling droid.

The film itself will release on December 18, 2015.
