Say ‘May the Force be with you’ to the new Star Wars: Episode VII Cast
In a brief statement posted this morning on StarWars.com, Lucasfilm revealed that John Boyega (Attack the Block), Daisy Ridley (Silent Witness), Adam Driver (Girls), Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis), Andy Serkis (The Lord of the Rings, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Domhnall Gleeson (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) and Max von Sydow will join returning franchise stars Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker. However, no roles were specified for the new additions.
“We are so excited to finally share the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII,” Abrams said in a statement. “It is both thrilling and surreal to watch the beloved original cast and these brilliant new performers come together to bring this world to life, once again. We start shooting in a couple of weeks, and everyone is doing their best to make the fans proud.”
It’s so damn exciting to see Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher together again after so many years. If nothing else for geeks like myself who grew up on the original trilogy, this a dream come true.
