Star Wars Monopoly Game Getting Female Character After All

"C'mon Rey! I said I was sorry... I didn't ask to be made a Monopoly game piece!"

“C’mon Rey! I said I was sorry… I didn’t ask to be made a Monopoly game piece!”

Hasbro recently explained that the reason it didn’t include the main character from Star Wars: The Force Awakens in its new Star Wars-themed Monopoly game wasn’t because she was a female, but because it didn’t want to spoil info about her character that was already quite obvious from the trailers. But now that everyone and their goldfish has done their mandatory 135-minute duty and watched the movie, Hasbro is going to add a woman to the Monopoly mix.

“We love the passion fans have for Rey, and are happy to announce that we will be making a running change to include her in the Monopoly: Star Wars game available later this year,” a rep for Hasbro tells EW.

Now that this is settled, perhaps Hasbro can do something about moving Des Moines back to Iowa?
