The pictures show Rey and BB-8 on Jakku, the mysterious Captain Phasma, Finn (who seems to be rocking Skywalker’s classic blue light saber), Osscar Issac as Rebel pilot Poe Dameron, the sick looking bad guy Kylo Ren and his divisive crossguard lightsaber, and last but certainly not least, good ol’ Han Solo and Chewy.
