Although new characters Finn and Kylo Ren appear in the official version of the Star Wars Monopoly along with Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, the movie's main character Rey is inexcusably absent.
Since Disney and Hasbro teamed up to create the specially themed version of the game, fans have berated both companies for their omission of the character with the Twitter hashtag #WheresRey.
Hasbro's statement on the missing character in the game reads: "Rey was not included to avoid revealing a key plot line [*SPOILER ALERT*] that she takes on Kylo Ren and joins the Rebel Alliance." As fans have pointed out, the appearance of Rey as a playing piece in the Monopoly game doesn't exactly count as a spoiler, does it? Not to mention that Luke is included as a playing piece while Leia, who had a substantially larger role in the latest movie, was also left out.
The Monopoly board game isn't the only game to omit Rey's character though, and the lack of the main character in the toy range is shocking:
