New ‘The Force Awakens’ Character Posters!

At the time of this writing there are 43 days 3 hours, and a handful of minutes left until Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters.

That’s pretty much an eternity.

But fear not, fellow fans! We have some Star Wars porn to hold you over in the meantime, and it comes in the form of brand new character posters!

ReyTFA-702x1024

LeiaTFA-702x1024

KyloRenTFA-702x1024

FinnTFA-702x1024

HanSoloTFA-702x1024

There’s a really obvious artistic motif going on with these posters, but even more obvious is the character who didn’t get one: Chewbacca.

Just kidding, you know we meant Luke.

At this point we’ve pretty much accepted the fact that we aren’t going to be seeing him until probably the third act of Force Awakens… oh well, at least we have a close up look at everyone else’s pores in the meantime.

Did you find any little hidden details in any of these posters? Let us know in the comments!

GeekGirl Review of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Trailer

As every man(dalorian), woman, and child from here to the farthest edge of the galaxy surely knows by now,  a new trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens debuted October 19, 2015.

GeekGirl Megan shared the news here at GGW, while Lacey and I weighed in on the new footage in our YouTube video review, which is featured below. We talked about seeing old favorites, the grand mythos of the Force, and even had a lightsaber battle. Plus, there’s a little extra something at the very end!

After watching the trailer again (and again and again), we realized there were a few things worth discussing, speculating, analyzing, and fan-girling:

Kylo Ren (possibly) torturing Poe Dameron.

We’ve seen baddie Kylo Ren and his tri-blade saber in previous trailers, but this time we hear his voice and actually see him causing major Force-style damage to the sexiest pilot to ever fly an X-Wing. What’s happening here? What led their paths to cross? Some fans are speculating Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac’s characters knew each other in the past before going down their separate paths (Kylo Ren’s being one of pain and destruction, and Poe Dameron’s being one seemingly more noble). Is this revenge for a past wrong-doing? Or does Kylo Ren simply impact suffering on anyone not on his side? Or is it something else all together? This is one sub-plot that is keeping us guessing!

Rey sobbing over a body.

After seeing this scene, two thoughts immediately crossed my mind: 1) How can Daisy Ridley simultaneously break our hearts with the most believable crying I’ve ever seen in a trailer/movie/television show, while still looking down right gorgeous? Tobey Maguire, take note. 2) Who/what is she crying over? She seems hunched over a limp body. Is someone injured? Is someone dead? Fan speculation tells us we might lose a classic character, and looking closer at the footage, I have a pretty good idea of who. Something tells me I will be crying just as hard during the movie… but probably not as gracefully as Ms. Ridley. Someone better bring tissues to the cinema, that’s all I’m saying.

Finn’s reaction at the fight.

John Boyega’s Finn was the first person we saw in the initial Episode VII teaser trailer. Another early image was of Kylo Ren’s saber in the forest, but we didn’t know who he was fighting. As more and more footage was released, we’ve learned it was these two about to battle it out. Can I just say how much I love Boyega’s face in this snippet? He is so expressive in his mannerisms, and seems to convey so many emotions in such a short amount of time, from “Holy Moly! What did I get myself into?!” to “I can’t show this guy how scared I am!” to “Okay, I can do this! Bring it on!” I love each and every subtle expression, and think he’ll be able to be comedic without being over the top. Nope, definitely not the next Jar Jar. This guy is surely a Jedi!

Feeling more like an epic World War II film than your run-of-the-mill sci-fi adventure, there is so much we loved about this dark, serious trailer. We can not wait for the feature film, which is released October 18, 2015 (though, let’s be serious, we already got our tickets for the premiere the night before!).

Thanks to  at TechCrunch for sharing the special moments from the trailer as gifs!

New ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Footage

New footage from Star Wars: The Force Awakens is here!

Okay, I know you’re dying to see the footage, so lets nix the words and get straight to the good stuff.

Check out the new footage below!:

There has been an awakening… #StarWars #TheForceAwakens

A video posted by Star Wars (@starwars) on

Lets just stop replaying that footage for a moment to talk about that lightsaber that John Boyega‘s Finn is wielding. Now we’ve actually seen Finn with his lightsaber before (thanks to the official poster for the film), but this is the first time we’ve seen him with it in fluid cinematic motion.

The scene re-raises one big question that people have already been asking: who the hell is Finn?

He and Rey (Daisy Ridley’s character) are the only characters whose last names seem to be a huge secret, which probably is due to the fact that they both have familiar parentage. And if that’s the case, then that means that Finn is related to a character we already know.

But who?

Since he is able to wield a lightsaber, Finn may just have Jedi blood in his veins. Could he possibly be related to Mace Windu (who was portrayed by Samuel L. Jackson in the heavily criticized prequels)?

Having Finn related to Windu would tie in the prequels to the new film, but it may be unlikely considering how many Star Wars fans would prefer to block those three movies and the name Jar Jar Binks from their memory completely.

So… that leaves another important character in the Star Wars world: Lando Calrissian. Just in case you’ve forgotten (and shame on you if you did!) Lando was a smuggler turned Rebel leader. He was pretty much like Han Solo (who happened to be his close friend and ally).

But Lando doesn’t have any Jedi blood in him (as far as we know), so how could Finn wield a lightsaber if he is indeed related to him?

One word: awakening.

The film is called The Force Awakens, so it’s quite possible that normal people who previously had zero connections to Jedi’s (or Sith’s) have begun to develop the Force.

Reason being? Luke and his family are the only Jedi’s left, and their breed is on the verge of extinction, meaning that the Force would also become extinct. But the Force found a way to regain balance by reappearing in random people… kind of like when randos started to develop air bending in Avatar: Legend of Korra.

Another possibility as to who Finn could be? Nobody. Who says last names are mandatory anyways?

All will be revealed for sure when Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18.

Let us know your theories about Finn in the comments!
