Character Names from ‘The Force Awakens’ Teaser Trailer

Were you wondering who the new characters from Star Wars ‘The Force Awakens’ teaser trailer are? Well we are one step closer to finding out because today the character names from the teaser trailer were revealed on trading cards via

So for those that want to know below are the trading cards and my thoughts on each in order of appearance in the trailer.


Is Finn a first name, last name or some sort of code name? Just who or what is he running from anyways?


Yeah, the rolling ball droid gets a cool sounding name! My only complaint is that when I hear BB, I think BB Gun. So I am hoping that BB stands for something really cool.


Now like, Finn, I wonder if it is a first name, a last name or a code name. However, no matter what it is the name “Rey” puts me in mind of sunshine and light.


Yeah, Stormtroopers! However, are these troopers from the 501st or not? That is the bigger question.


The first of ‘The Force Awakens’ characters in the teaser trailer to be revealed with a FULL name. However, this does not really sound like a Star Wars name based on all those name generators out there! Guess they will have to start adding more possible names to those generators now, huh?


I have to admit, I love the look of these X-Wings in formation over the water. Do you?


Another Star Wars name that does not quite fit the universe as we have known it before, especially for someone associated with the ‘Dark Side’. What no Darth Kylo, Darth Ren? or even Count Kylo Ren?


And last, but definitely not least…

We have confirmation that this IS The Millennium Falcon representing the ‘Light Side’, just in case anyone was in doubt, right?
