If you're like us, chances are you watched and re-watched the official trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens multiple times when it first surfaced online. There were mysteries buried within the all-too-short 98-second video clip, and now thanks to an exclusive dispatch from Entertainment Weekly (who received the intel directly from director J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy) we now know the names of some of the characters depicted in the trailer. Even better, they're presented in the form of old-school trading cards, like the ones issued by Topps for the original 1977 Star Wars film. Granted, the mysteries still remain (Is Rey the daughter of Han and Leia? Who exactly is Kylo Ren, and will he be the one to disrupt the balance of the Force?), but discovering these names is a good start.
