Vanity Fair is the first to have pictures of the new and old (returning) characters for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, check out Rey (Daisy Ridely), Finn (John Boyega), Han Solo (Harrison Ford), and Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew)!
Here we have a showcase of some new faces for the upcoming Star Wars reboot starting with:
Adam Driver as Kylo Ren – (usually) a masked, dark-robed, three-pronged red lightsaber wielding villain (from the Dark Side), who stands in front of two Storm Troopers (below) on a frost covered planet. The planet is rumoured to be the battefield in an important stand off scene between the Force and the Dark Side.

Check out Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave) in her motion capture head gear for the film for her character Maz Kanata (an entirely CGI alien who’s been compared to Jabba the Hutt – in the sense that she’s a crime boss whose allegiance isn’t to The Resistance or The First Order, but to herself.

A collection of “galactic travelers, smugglers, and other assorted riffraff”:
