Director and co-writer of Star Wars Episode VII:The Force Awakens, J.J. Abrams, has “leaked” some pertinent detail surrounding the highly anticipated film exclusively to Entertainment Weekly. Abrams has revealed the names of key characters featured in the recently released teaser trailer via the medium of Topps-style trading cards. The cards are reminiscent of Topps Star Wars cards released in 1977. Abrams told EW that the numbering used on the faux cards has significance.
Topps was unavailable for comment.
