Star Wars: Finn’s Stormtrooper Name Is an Easter Egg From Original Film

John Boyega, Star Wars, Finn

A tweet from Star Wars revealed a detail surrounding Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The Stormtrooper number held by Finn (John Boyega) in the film – FN-2187- has a meaning within the Star Wars universe. The number is a callback to the cell number that Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) is kept in during Star Wars: A New Hope.

As well, the number 21-87 even had exterior meaning outside of that, as it references the name of a short film that George Lucas was inspired by.
