Star Wars: Episode VII Cast Announcement

This may be the news that Star Wars fans have been waiting for, and is the first to release the official announcement of the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII.

Of the original cast members, Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leah Organa-Skywalker), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), and Kenny Baker (R2-D2) will be returning to the franchise.

Rounding out this incredible list of veterans is the announcement of some relative newcomers to the Star Wars Universe. These fresh faces include Andy Serkis (Goloum from Lord of the Rings), Domhnall Gleeson (Bill Weasley in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows pt 2), Adam Driver (Inside Llewyn Davis), Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis), Max Von Sydow (The Exorcist), John Boyega (Attack the Block) and Daisy Ridley (Mr. Selfridge TV show). This is great news, however there is no information yet released as to who these new actors and actresses will be playing in this first movie of the new series but we will be keeping everyone up to date as more information is given.

On the back of this casting information, Disney/Lucas Films has also given us another incredible bit of news to wet our growing appetites for this franchise. At this time, Star Wars: Episode VII will have a worldwide release date of December 18th, 2015.

With the cast announcement and now a confirmed release date, I am incredibly excited to see what comes out of the mind of J.J. Abrams. Are you excited for the new series? What are you hoping to see out of the new Disney/Lucas trilogy?
