There have been trading cards now publicized for the much-anticipated release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens - these have been used as a slightly unusual method to announce the latest heroes and villains to the public. Said to look like the original playing cards released a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away - we'll cover for you a select few of these announced characters.

Leaked originally to Entertainment Weekly, these cards have been designed to look like the original 1977 releases, with each card containing a still from the highly-regarded teaser trailer.

Firstly we have the lovable droid, named BB-8.

This is followed by a possible villain named Kylo Ren. He's been a centerpiece to a lot of controversy recently due to the lightsaber design looking like it's going to chop off his own wrist with a single swing.
