Her Instagram note reads: 

Thank you so much for that brilliant invite to your formal.Unfortunately I'm locked in an intense staring competition with Luke Skywalker, somewhere in the middle of the galaxy, so won't be able to make it! Let me know how it goes! 


And just to show you what she's missing out on, here's the video invitation:



I guess he'll just have to carry on "making lots of friends and gaining lots of knowledge" without her.

John Boyega went to visit a small Star Wars fan at the Royal London Hospital.  As he explains in the image description he shared on Instagram, Boyega stayed in character the whole time: 

This little stormtrooper Daniel had a wonderful wish after seeing the force awakens. Daniel currently lives with a brain tumour and rather than having Finn to himself he wanted Finn to meet the kids at the Royal London hospital and give them some toys. I stayed in character while I was with this brave boy asking him what a car was. He taught Finn about everything earth related! Really thankful for the opportunity this child granted me and I'm just humbled! I hope I played a little part in making you smile young stormtrooper.

He even found a Rey to hold his hand during the trip:

Daisy Ridley came across a post of her with a speech bubble suggesting that she's too skinny to be a "real woman".  She commented on the post which then got a lot of attention. 
Ridley posted a follow up on her own Instagram after her fans went after the person who posted the original.

You know that part at the end of The Force Awakens, after all the bad stuff with Han happens, when Leia and Rey share a slightly awkward, ultimately sweet hug? A lot of people took that moment as a slight towards Chewbacca, whom Leia ultimately shared a much deeper connection with than this girl who she had literally just met. Why wouldn't she go hug the walking carpet, who was standing right there and probably feeling pretty down; did she hate him? The short answer: no. JJ Abrams just messed up the blocking of the scene. In an interview with /Film, he explains: 

That was probably one of the mistakes I made in that. My thinking at the time was that Chewbacca, despite the pain he was feeling, was focused on trying to save Finn and getting him taken care of. So I tried to have Chewbacca go off with him and focus on Rey, and then have Rey find Leia and Leia find Rey. The idea being that both of them being strong with the Force and never having met, would know about each other — that Leia would have been told about her beyond what we saw onscreen and Rey of course would have learned about Leia. And that reunion would be a meeting and a reunion all in one, and a sort of commiseration of their mutual loss.

Had Chewbacca not been where he was, you probably wouldn’t have thought of it. But because he was right there, passed by Leia, it felt almost like a slight, which was definitely not the intention.


So there you have it. Lord of scifi, JJ Abrams, makes mistakes too (and not just lens flares).
