J.J. Abrams has revealed the first characters' names from Star Wars: The Force Awakens in a very retro way. The film's co-writer and director along and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy unveiled eight new trading cards, just like the ones first released for the original Star Wars in 1977. In the first card, the adorable soccer ball drone is revealed to be named BB-8. We also learn that Oscar Isaac's X-Wing pilot is called Poe Dameron, and that big baddie with the cross gaurd lightsaber? He might have the most hipster name of all: Kylo Ren, which would make sense if rumors are true and that ominous form, is Girls star and hipster idol Adam Driver. The cards also apparently revealed one big rumor about the film to be untrue. Daisy Ridley's character, which was speculated to be named Kira, is actually called Rey, but the glaring absence of Rey's surname points to a possible family connection to others in the Star Wars universe. John Boyega also doesn't have a known last name yet, but the possible Stormtrooper is called Finn.
