Earlier today, our writer wrote about the fact that Rey wasn’t included in the Star Wars Monopoly set from Hasbro. You have the option to play as Finn, Kylo Ren, Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, but not Rey. In fact, the number of pieces are smaller than most other Monopoly games. Since then, the article has been making its way around the Internet, drawing the ire of fans who are tired of seeing a lack of Rey toys and the constant feeling that toy companies don’t care about female fans. It’s egregious because Rey is the star of the film.
UPDATE – 6:53PM PST: I just heard from my friend Carrie Goldman who’s eight-year-old daughter Annie Rose wrote the original letter to Hasbro about Rey being missing from the Star Wars Monopoly game. Hasbro’s official Twitter account just tweeted at her saying this: “We love your passion for Rey, and are happy to share that we will be including her in the Monopoly: Star Wars game, available later this year.” You can check out .
