Star Wars.com has just announced the Episode 7 cast list. The list includes:
Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film.
This is interesting and not entirely shocking on many of the names as we have seen a few of them thrown around the past few weeks. Ones that caught me off guard were Andy Serkis, and Max Von Sydow. As suspected many of the origial trilogy cast is returning. Of course we don’t know who any is playing yet…except for the obvious ones, but with May the 4th coming up I suspect we will find out more soon.
J.J. Abrams was quoted as saying “We are so excited to finally share the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII. 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.”
The film is set to open worldwide on December 18, 2015.
