New Star Wars VII Villain and Hero Names Revealed in Trading Cards

By Jesus Diaz on at

In a fun and slightly unusual fashion, the makers of Star Wars: The Force Awakens decided to reveal the names of new characters in the form of throwback trading cards. They look a lot like the playing cards released for the original movie. But they're, well, brand spanking new.

J.J. Abrams and friends leaked the playing cards to Entertainment Weekly. Designed to look like Topps trading cards circa 1977 the new set include stills from clips included in the trailer.

While not all of the cards feature new characters, the ones they do feature are likely the ones you want to know about.

There's BB-8, which is an appropriate-sounding name for a ball droid
