Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ primary character Rey is missing from Hasbro’s Star Wars Monopoly and people are not happy about it. Lucasfilm,
Disney, Hasbro and other license-holders for the record-breaking sci-fi film have taken a lot of heat lately for not including Daisy Ridley’s native of Jaaku in more of the tie-in products based on the seventh live action film in the Star Wars series.
The four characters players can chose from in the game are Return of the Jedi-era Luke Skywalker, Finn, Kylo Ren, and Darth Vader. Hasbro actually came out to comment about the characters included in the game.
“The Star Wars: Monopoly game was released in September, months before the movie’s release, and Rey was not included to avoid revealing a key plot line that she takes on Kylo Ren and joins the Rebel Alliance,” a Hasbro spokesperson said.
Rey has been included in the Star Wars version of chess, Guess Who, and Hands Down. She will also have six- and 12-inch action figures hitting shelves.
Update: Now Hasbro announced to include Rey in the upcoming Hasbro’s Star Wars Monopoly.
