Star Wars Monopoly Will Still Not Include Rey Due To "Insufficient Interest"

Rey still *isn't* a part of Rey's Force Awakens Monopoly Token Meets A Tragic Fate

But now the company says American retailers opted not to sell the edition with a Rey token.

The Rhode Island-based company that makes the "Star Wars: Monopoly" game says USA retailers didn't buy a version with the female character Rey that was pushed for in an online outcry.

Fans of the galaxy far, far away won't find Rey in the latest edition of Star Wars Monopoly; according to Hasbro, the company behind the iconic board game, they did create a Rey piece, but it hasn't been released in the United States due to "insufficient interest", the Chicago Tribune reports. "This product was sold to retailers in several markets around the world but is not available for sale in the U.S. due to insufficient interest".

Obviously, that's not happening, though Duffy this year said that fans who bought the all-male game "can request a Rey from customer service." Joy. When asked about the situation by The Associated Press, spokeswoman Julie Duffy said via email that the Rey piece has been made but the sets that include the piece are not yet available for purchase in the United States. That self-imposed deadline has since passed, but this week the Associated Press noticed that Star Wars Monopoly games at US retailers were still lacking Rey.

After receiving this letter in early 2016, Hasbro promised to add Rey to the set. Her mother, Carrie Goldman, of Evanston, Illinois, said Wednesday she's happy Annie Rose will be able to get a Rey figure but it's not how they understood Hasbro's promise.

Are people not buying the game because Rey is included?

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the USA wanted "to bring Kim Jong-un to his senses, not his knees" in response to the test. However, the South Korean news agency's report Tuesday seems to cast doubt on the re-entry part of the equation.

Back in 2016 fans of the "Star Wars" franchise were a bit confused as to why Rey, the central character in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens', was left out of Hasbro's "Star Wars: Monopoly".

"Without her THERE IS NO FORCE AWAKENS!". It came with Luke Skywalker - a guy who's in TFA for five seconds -, Darth Vader, Finn and Kylo Ren. Besides, boys and girls need to see that women can be as strong as men! Hopefully, as more female characters take the lead in blockbusters, the companies will finally change their strategies.

He bought the game for his 4-year-old son from Amazon and sent a Twitter message to Hasbro complaining about the omission.

Rey will next appear in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which now enjoys a 3.97 out of 5 on ComicBook.com's anticipation rankings.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi, from writer/director Rian Johnson, is in post-production now for a December 15, 2017, release. She doesn't have that choice with Monopoly: Star Wars.
