New Oscar Isaac Poster and Interview with People Magazine about The Force Awakens

PoeNew poster with Poe Dameron has just been released. Also People Magazine will be releasing a Star Wars: The Force Awakens special collector’s edition of their magazine on December 9th. In this month’s issue titled The Stars of Star Wars, they had an opportunity to talk with Oscar Isaac about The Force Awakens.



As the released date for The Force Awakens draws ever closer, it seems that every time a cast member answers a question about his/her character, 10 more questions pop into our heads. This time People Magazine had an opportunity to talk with Oscar Isaac about Poe Dameron’s back story.


What’s also known is that Poe is apparently not part of the Skywalker lineage. A recent Star Wars comic series that tells (some) of the story between 1983’s Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens showed Poe’s mother as a Rebel pilot during the climactic battle to destroy the second Death Star.



Isaac has also said he thinks Poe grew up on Yavin 4, the lush home of the Rebel base in the original Star Wars movie that was shot in Guatemala, where Isaac was born.


More information from this article and more can be found at your local news stand on December 9th. People magazine promises a first look at new characters, exclusive pictures, and more.

    Isaac looks like he’s going to be a fantastic X-Wing pilot. Hope we get to see him as Poe for the whole trilogy.

    Finally some Poe recognition he deserves!!

    Daisy and John are so charismatic that I didn’t even care when they mentioned the prequels. That, my friends, is a miracle.

    Will Daisy at last stop calling the originals “the sequels”!?

    • December 6, 2015 at 4:56 am

      Exactly. Those are the originals, VII, VIII, and IX will be the sequels.

      • December 6, 2015 at 7:59 am

        well canon wise the OT was the sequel to the PT just saying

        • December 6, 2015 at 8:44 am

          Yeah, but no one calls them that. And they’re not sequels. So, there’s that…

    He needs to do a film where he plays Pacino when he was young either as a character or himself.

    just gonna leave this here for anyone who’s still haven’t seen it.

    poe and kylo go way before TFA, before they were mortal enemies, they played on a folk recording together

      Please, Kathy Kennedy…

    For those who wish to see his acting, he played king John in Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood. He portrayed a despicable character, you just hated him whenever he was on screen. Obviously a very talented actor, I’m looking forward to see his performance.

    • December 6, 2015 at 5:01 am

      I love him playing nasty king in Robin Hood. He is definitely one of the most talented actor in his generation, wondering why he has been out of marketing campaign of the movie ?

        Ex Machina blew my freakin mind! He is a great actor in anything, and i think he’s gonna bring some subtle han solo-ish comedy to TFA!

      • December 7, 2015 at 9:33 am

        Loooved him in Ex Machina, very much looking forward to seeing him in TFA

  • December 6, 2015 at 9:09 am

    I can’t help but wonder if there is any significance to the fact that Poe gets captured by the First Order and tortured by Kylo in some way, and the fact that his X-Wing is painted black with red markings….just like some of the new tie-fighters?
