Going into Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I tried to forget all I knew about the highly anticipated film, including all the rumors of plots, characters, and cameos. So, it wasn’t until after I saw the movie in IMAX 3D that I took a look back at what rumors turned out to be true, as well as where those reported cameos and other roles showed up.
Here’s a look a some of the familiar faces, and some hidden ones as well, that showed up in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
And obviously, this will contain spoilers for the film.

Where are the Heroes? In hiding, playing vigilante, making plans, fighting back… they are on NBC on Thursday nights on Heroes Reborn, and I am glad. I was afraid that I was just so excited for this reboot, I would love it even if it was terrible, much as I would love LOST, should it ever return.
In just a few hours, a television phenomenom of its time will return in a 13-episode limited series form, and I will be only one of the many who have been waiting for it with bated breath. Heroes Reborn returns at 8:00pm for a 2-hour premiere, more than 5 years after Heroes ended. What will it be like? We will know soon.
Check out one of the scenes in the clip provided between Noah Bennet (Jack Coleman) and Quentin Frady (Henry Zebrowski), who was one of the stars of Heroes Reborn: Dark Matters, the prequel web series.
Check out here below the sneak peek, plus the digital exclusive that includes an interview with Dr. Mohinder Suresh.
Heroes Reborn premieres tomorrow night, so NBC threw us one more bone before we are immersed in EVO land. Tim Kring‘s 13-episode limited series picks up years after the Claire Bennet came out to the world, but now Evolved Humans are in hiding after being blamed for a terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas. New EVOs are discovering their powers, and old EVOs are taking up the mantle to answer the call, “Where are the heroes?”
Check out the sneak peek clip, plus 2 others, and the official synopsis below.
Heroes Reborn is gearing up for its fiery return on September 24th on NBC, with an interactive and photo experience, in the middle of Times Square, NYC. Held just today, September 12th (12pm-10pm) and tomorrow, September 13th (10am-8pm), in the middle of the pedestrian plaza (Broadway between 46th & 47th St), this fun fan experience lets you feel what its like to look like a hero, and to be a hero.
