You gotta love Rey. She's our latest Jedi and further proof the women in Star Wars are more kick-ass than the men surrounding them. And for a new generation, she's giving young girls a great role model to look up to ... unless they play Monopoly. (Video via Walt Disney Studios / 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens')
By now you may have heard that Hasbro's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" Monopoly game was missing, well the main character of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." And the movie's director is none too pleased.
According to Entertainment Weekly, J.J. Abrams told reporters at a press event, "I will say that it seems preposterous and wrong that the main character of the movie is not well represented in what is clearly a huge piece of the Star Wars world in terms of merchandising." He says he called Hasbro immediately to find out what was going on. (Video via NBC / 'The Tonight Show')
