Here's The Coolest Easter Egg In "The Force Awakens"

SPOILERS. But also fun facts.

Posted on

Meet Finn, he's one of the new heroes in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. He starts off as a Stormtrooper.

He was taken from his family and trained from an early age as part of General Hux's new non-clone Stormtrooper regime. We don't know a ton about it yet, tbh.

He's pretty low in the ranks, he works in the sanitation department and has only seen battle once. He doesn't even have a real name, just an identification number: FN2187.

Later, after his friend smears blood on his helmet like Simba in The Lion King, FN2187 realizes the Dark Side is bad and he defects. He gets a new name from his new friend Poe Dameron: Finn. It's like FN, but cooler, ya know?

But J.J. Abrams is a crafty man, and he likes giving little nods to Star Wars superfans. So FN2187 couldn't just be a random number. It had to mean something.
