There have been rumors for months, but now the cast of “Star Wars VII” has been announced!
Disney and Lucasfilm confirmed on the official Star Wars website that original cast members Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, and others will be in the upcoming movie! We imagine Star Wars nerds are so excited!
“Girls” star Adam Driver will take part in the relaunched film as well as newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson and Max von Sydow.
The most exciting part is that cast from the original trilogy – Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker – would also be in the film. The movie will be directed by JJ Abrams.
A black-and-white photo of the cast and crew was accompanied by the announcement.
Casting for the new film, which will be the first installment since Disney took over the franchise from George Lucas, has been kept top secret.
There were rumors that the original cast would make cameos in the film, ever since it was announced in November. Those rumors really heat up when Harrison, Carrie, and Mark were spotted together in London on Monday.
It was reported in March that Peter Mayhew would reprise his role as Chewbacca.
The movie will hit theaters on Dec. 18, 2015. The movie will reportedly primarily be shot at London’s Pinewood Studios.
