Whoa! Did you guys know that there's a new Star Wars movie out? We know, this probably comes as a huge shock and surprise. Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released in theaters December 17, 2015, and with its arrival came a whole new universe of Star Wars characters to get to know and love. 

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will unleash new heroes, new villains, new aliens, new tech, and a whole new trilogy for nerds to talk about for years to come. These fictional characters will shape a whole new generation of Jedi, and will hopefully blend the old characters in with the new to create an awesome new trilogy. We've put together a list of the best characters in the film for you to obsess over. 

Maybe your favorite character is the fearless female leader, Rey, from Jakku. Or maybe you've already fallen in love with the handsome and hilarious fighter pilot, Poe Dameron. Maybe you love that whole bad-boy thing and are currently super into Kylo Ren. Or perhaps your favorite new character isn't even human! Maz and BB-8 could not be more rad, and we love their characters already.
