Disney and J.J. Abrams have released the character names for Star Wars: Episode VII via images done in the style of the original Topps Star Wars trading cards.
We see the new droid is named BB-8.
Oscar Isaac plays Poe Dameron.
The new bad guy is named Kylo Ren.
Daisy Ridley plays a character named Rey.
John Boyega plays Finn.
It's also said the order the "cards" were released is a factor (in something).
