We have been hooked on JJ Abrams directing and writing style since Alias. When he took over the Star Trek universe I was a little skeptical but once again proved that he is a great talent. Now as he takes over another space franchise fanboys everywhere wait with bated breath. Star Wars Episode VII opens worldwide on December 18, 2015 and will be the first Star Wars not be directed by George Lucas. Now after a very long wait the official cast has been named.
The cast of Star Wars Episode VII ; John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow (the villain?) will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), and Kenny Baker (R2-D2)
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.~ J.J. Abrams
