Moments ago at Star Wars Celebration, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley and Oscar Isaac were introduced.

The three are the new lead characters for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and offered where their characters are first discovered in the movie.

New images of the characters have also been released.

Rey (Daisy Ridley): We discover Rey on the desert planet Jaku. She is a scavenger, like in a ship graveyard. She is self-sufficient and does everything her self and very solitary until she meets another character and an adventure begins.

Finn (John Boyega): So we find Finn. He is in incredible danger, and the way he decides to react to this danger changes his life, #1, and launches him into the Star Wars universe in a very unique way. So I can't wait for you guys to see it (Boyega also confirms the character is a stormtrooper).

Po Dameron (Oscar Isaac): He's the best frickin' guy in the galaxy. That's who he is. He's been sent on a mission by a certain princess and he ends up coming across Mr. John Boyega's character, and their fates are forever intertwined.
