In a fun and slightly unusual fashion, the makers of Star Wars: The Force Awakens decided to reveal the names of new characters in the form of throwback trading cards. They look a lot like the playing cards released for the original movie. But they're, well, brand spanking new.

J.J. Abrams and friends leaked the playing cards to Entertainment Weekly. Designed to look like Topps trading cards circa 1977 the new set include stills from clips included in the trailer.

While not all of the cards feature new characters, the ones they do feature are likely the ones you want to know about.

Do Star Wars playing cards always look like if they were made in the 70s? Or is this a new thing for Episode VII? That design is so retro.
