What a way to kick off the Star Wars Celebration!
During Thursday's panel in Anaheim, Calif., fans got to see new trailer for the movie, in addition to stills of Oscar Isaac, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega in costume as their respective Star Wars: The Force Awakens characters. The cast was tight-lipped about just how their characters are involved in the movie, per usual, though they did share some new details. "We discover Rey on the desert planet Jakku," Ridley said. "She is a scavenger in a ship graveyard. She is completely self sufficient...and very solitary, until she meets another character, and her journey begins."
Boyega, who plans Finn, said his character is first shown "in incredible danger" and it "launches him into the Star Wars universe in a very unique way." Asked if his character is a Stormtrooper, based on last year's trailer, he declined to comment.
Asked if Finn is "a bad guy or a good guy," he said, "My memory is just gone!"
Oscar Isaac said his character, Poe Dameron, is "the best freakin' pilot in the galaxy." What else could the actor reveal about his role? "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," Isaac teased.
