‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Director J.J. Abrams Calls Lack of Rey Merch ‘Preposterous and Wrong’

The great franchise toy saga continues, as J.J. Abrams has weighed in on the absence of Daisy Ridley’s Rey from much of The Force Awakens merchandising. The new lead character of the Star Wars franchise isn’t featured in nearly as many toys and merchandising as her male counterparts, inspiring the Twitter hashtag #WheresRey.

J.J. Abrams revved up the engine on the ol’ Star Wars ship, launching the series on a new journey with The Force Awakens, but declining to return for the subsequent sequels. Instead, Rian Johnson (Looper) and Colin Trevorrow (Jurassic World) will be steering the franchise from here on out, directing Episodes 8 and 9, respectively.

SNL’s ‘Star Wars’ Toy Ad Reminds You Who’s Really Buying All Those Toys

Sure, there are lots of kids and teens buying Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys, but a long, long time ago in a galaxy that is actually this one, Star Wars belonged to another group of nerds — and those nerds are not going to let today’s kids take ownership of their fandom so easily, especially when these kids don’t know that action figures should STAY.
