If you’re anything like us, and most of the other people on the internet, you’ve spent the better part of the last day pouring over every frame and word in the latest Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer. It’s yet another look that sends shivers up our spines, but, as with the previous offerings, for everything that it shows us, there is still a great deal that remains hidden.

For all the crazy awesome action scenes, grim moments, and dramatic beats that we’ve now seen, we don’t really know much about the story. And for all of the characters we’ve glimpsed on screen, there are some notable ones that we haven’t really laid eyes on yet. We thought, what better time to run through some of the characters we’re most excited and curious to see in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Let us know who you’re most excited about in the comments below.

Star Wars
Maz Kanata
We got our first look at the completely CGI pirate in the latest poster for The Force Awakens, though it’s far from detailed — there’s also that bit in the second trailer that we suspect is her handing over a lightsaber. However, as much as we want to see this character full on, we probably won’t, as Lucasfilm has said they plan to keep Maz Kanata under wraps until the film is unveiled. Voiced by Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o, though we haven’t seen her in action yet, we believe we got to hear her urging Rey (Daisy Ridley) to let the Force wash over her in the new trailer. At this stage, we don’t even know much about her aside from the piracy thing, and that her dwelling is a hangout for nefarious space outlaws and folks of that ilk. It will be interesting to see how she fits into the narrative. She obviously has knowledge of the Force, so we have to wonder if she’s a Jedi, something of a historian, or just a useful person to know if you’re battling the First Order and need a place to lay low.
