5 Characters Who May Not Survive Star Wars: The Force Awakens


Star Wars: The Force Awakens is now just days away from release and anticipation is obviously at an all-time high. With the review embargo not lifting until extremely late on Wednesday night, it’s clear that Disney doesn’t want any spoilers from the movie to find their way online over the next few days, and fans hoping to go into the movie completely unspoiled are best off avoiding social media altogether this week.

It’s not like the studio has managed to avoid spoilers altogether over the past couple of years, though. Right from the very start of production we were getting leaked concept art and story details, while what some claim is the entire plot of the movie can be found easily enough with a quick Google search.


Looking at the long list of old and new characters who will factor into Star Wars: The Force Awakens though, you don’t exactly need to read spoilers to know that not all of them will make it to Episode VIII. This is, after all, a franchise which has never held back when it comes to killing off its heroes and villains, and there are more than a handful of characters in this movie who definitely aren’t going to still be around come 2017.

Here, you will find the five heroes and villains who I’m convinced aren’t going to factor into Star Wars Episode VIII. I haven’t seen The Force Awakens yet, and this is all just speculation at this point, but as always, head on down to the comments section after reading and let us know if you agree.
