By Matt O'Bryant

What's up guys and gals,

We have some potentially big spoilers for everyone today about Rey and Finn from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  

The spoilery details below are from the character's background descriptions that come to us courtesy of some toy packaging, which is amazing considering how much trouble that Disney, Lucasfilm, and director J.J. Abrams has went through to keep everything story related shrouded in secrecy until the film hits theaters this December.

Warning, big spoilers ahead so only read any further if you don't mind some secrets being revealed about these to characters and scenes in the film.

Sometimes, heroes come from the unlikeliest of places. The Galactic Empire has been dead for decades, but evil never really dies. With villains rising to take the Empire’s place, heroes must rise to oppose them. After becoming stranded by himself in the deserts of Jakku, and meeting up with a girl named Rey, a Stormtrooper named Finn has joined the side of the Resistance. He began his adventure as a part of the New Order, but now he’s one of the few people that can stop them. With a new look, Finn is ready for a new mission. Since trading in his Stormtrooper armor for a new set of gear, Finn’s outfit might not be flashy, but it’s all that a hero needs to succeed.

The mission to take down the First Order is underway! After invading the Starkiller Base, one member of the Resistance has split from her group and found herself in a massive room full of First Order soldiers. Completely surrounded by Stormtroopers with blasters and Knights of Ren with lightsabers, she seems to be totally outnumbered. Unfortunately for her enemies, though, they’ve made a big mistake: it’s not about the strength of the weapon, but the strength of the warrior that wields it.

Now, even though these character descriptions are from official Disney toys, doesn't mean that they are 100 percent accurate, but its a safe bet they are pretty close.  Star Wars 7 News points out that Lucasfilm employee Matt Martin believes that some of the information on the costume descriptions could be “editorialized” by retailers, meaning that it’s hypothetically not all indicative of what we’ll see in the finished film.
