    Yeah, most of the EU names were very Star Wars-y. The Ep 7 names sound so… Fan Faction.

    I agree with Nam, I like the Stormtrooper armor, not the helmet. I think the Flametrooper helmet looks pretty cool.

    I like the name Finn Rey. Poe Dameron would be better if it was reversed and was Dameron Poe. Unless they say “Captain Dameron” mostly.
    Kylo Ren sounds very not-intimidating for a Sith, or whatever he is.

    I have an uncle named Finn so that’s just a bit weird, and just too normal a name over here. Actually it’s mostly the older generations who have it. Most young people wouldn’t give it to their kids, so it just doesn’t fit in with Star Wars at all to me 😛
    Rey is the best of the new names. Poe is the worst one IMO. And yes, Dameron is much better.
    Kylo Ren I can live with if it’s his real name. If it’s a Sith name it’s the dumbest Sith name in history.

    Lord Scourge is a dumb Sith name lol 😛

    Luke is like the only common or normal name in Star Wars really

    Most of the names sound very un-Lucas. That’s one of the reasons why I don’t think JJ understands what Star Wars is about beyond his creepy fanboy nostalgia.

    I still think Jania and Jacen were pretty cool names for the Solo kids. Some people are saying Rey is just an alias and her real name is Kira. It’s a good name but reminds me too much of Keira Knightly…

    Aayla is actually becoming a pretty common name 😛

    Kira is the name of an important character in SWTOR as well so I’m fine with that though she was annoying…

    Leia and Han are real names too, Newan. And so is Owen. And even Obi-wan went by “Ben” at first.

    Kylo Ren sounds like a Star Wars name to us, but not a bad guy’s name.

    And we agree with Namialus about Poe Dameron.

    I’m kind of okay about Finn and Rey, but I am in full agreement on Poe. It only reminds me of a fat panda martial arts expert and that’s not exactly anything close to a talented Star Wars pilot 😛 Here’s hoping the character likes being called by his surname.

    Kylo Ren is all right, doesn’t sound threatening, but maybe it’s to lure us into a false sense of security 😛

    Actually, if I’m honest, my favourite’s Phasma. Probably because it’s a combination of two of my favourite words: phantom and plasma 😛

    Out of context they sound weird for names, yeah. Having Captain in front make’s it seem ten times cornier if you look at that as the name. Phasma is ok as a last name if the first name goes well with it. Kylo Is star warsy. rey is. Finn kinda is. I think Poe Dameron is pretty star warsy. If kung Fu Panda werent a thing, it would probably have a better appeal 😛

    Obi-Wan, Anakin, Mace, Palpatine, Qui-Gon… And thats just humans.
    Even Lando and Boba are kinda odd names. We just grew up with these, so they have a better appeal.

    Of course they could still be using cover names for some of these and be tricking us all… Never know.

    Kira makes me think of Star Trek DS9

    LOL about Poe

    They’re missing a Star Wars GL type name. Sidious Grievous etc.
    I like DS9 but never finished it when it ran. It’s on Netflix I should watch it. Sisko was a bad ass commander.

    There are rumors/theories about Darth Plagueis being in this movie… I would be a lot more interested in it if that was true.

    With JJ at the helm? Not a fat chance. The Prequels and their characters have all but been sanctioned by his lot for this film. I am still mourning the loss of canonization of the Darth Plaguies novel *Quietly sobs*

    Its possible, if this will deal with the force and sith stuff as it seems it may.

    Nah, Plagueis = midi-chlorians. I don’t think they want to focus on midi-chlorians.

    One of my followers tweeted me I hope Ford says “Snokes, why did it have to be Snokes.” 😆

    Been thinking about it and I think we must prepare for the inevitable “Episode VIII Snokey and the Bandit”. 😛

    This teaser was released today for an upcoming SWTOR expansion called Fallen Empire. But as I recall one of the characters in TFA is an artifact hunter and there’s much speculation that this planet here is Jakku possibly tying the artifacts to SWTOR which could mean SWTOR may be back in the canon there’s been discussion about that as well.

    There was another image as well where the Jedi he’s holding is dead so I think there’s going to be one of those awesome CGI trailers on Monday at EAs E3 panel which will probably give more clarity of it is Jakku and stuff

    Did anyone else follow the panel at Comic-Con?

    Yes. God, they SUCK at naming characters. Phasma, Snoke, Hux? Sound very un-Star Wars and very Treky.

    Carrie Fisher is hilarious as usual.

    Harrison Ford!

    @TheSWU: JJ: “We can’t be blinded by their fandom, they need to make the film good first.” #StarWars #SDCC

    I stopped paying attention to the other cast members when Gwendoline came on. :love:
