The Cast of Star Wars Episode VII
Ready for your intergalactic minds to be blown away?
This prolific actor has played a wide variety of roles, and has had lots of experience acting in movie franchises such as "Lord of the Rings" and "Planet of the Apes." Surely his acting versatility makes Andy Serkis an asset to the "Star Wars" cast. That said, we have no idea what kind of character he'll be playing! Any ideas?
"Inside Llewyn Davis" star Oscar Isaac will be featured in the main cast of the upcoming "Star Wars: Episode VII" movie. With three more films coming out this year, this actor is on a roll!
John Boyega, who plays Chris Tanner in multiple episodes of "24: Live Another Day," has officially joined the "Star Wars" cast. What character do you think he'll be playing?
"About Time" star Domhnall Gleeson, who also played Bill Weasley in the last two "Harry Potter" film installments, has also been cast for the seventh episode of the "Star Wars" saga.
The biggest casting spoiler we have on this feature film is that "Girls" lead Adam Driver has been cast as the villain. Think he can pull it off? We'll have to wait and see!
This actress, who has only made guest appearances on TV series such as "Mr. Selfridge" and "Silent Witness," is slated for her first role on the big screen! We couldn't be more excited for her and the incredible opportunity to be a part of the "Star Wars" cast!

Can you believe this actor has been in the business since 1949? "Star Wars: Episode VII" is lucky to have this incredibly experienced actor on their casting roster!
In With The New, But Not Out With The Old!
The new cast will be joining the original "Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi" stars of the franchise. Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Carrie Fisher, Kenny Baker, and Peter Mayhew are all slated to reprise their roles! Shall we review?
That's right, folks: Han Solo will return!
Rejoice! Princess Leia is coming back to the big screen.
You didn't think they'd forget about Luke Skywalker, did you? Get ready to see Mark Hamill reprise his role!
The original voice of C-3PO will not be lost in this episode. We couldn't be happier!
Of course, we can't have one droid without the other! Kenny Baker will also be reprising his role as R2-D2.
Hopefully Peter Mayhew has been practicing his old Chewbacca roar...because we'll be hearing it again in "Star Wars: Episode VII!"
According to Fox News, "Star Wars: Episode VII" plans to begin filming by May 2014. The film is scheduled to be released on December 18, 2015.
Featuring both new and familiar faces, and taking place 30 years after "Return of the Jedi," "Star Wars: Episode VII" is sure to be everything we've hoped for and more. Stay tuned for more details!
