The cast of the new Star Wars film has been announced, and it includes some of the old favorites from the original trilogy. From The Daily Beast:
On Tuesday afternoon, the world took one step closer to that galaxy far, far away as Disney and Lucasfilm announced the cast for filmmaker J.J. Abrams’ upcoming sequel, Star Wars: Episode VII—a film reportedly set 30 years after the events of the 1983 flick Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.
Actors John Boyega (Attack the Block), Daisy Ridley (Mr. Selfridge), Adam Driver (Girls), Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis), Andy Serkis (The Lord of the Rings), Domhnall Gleeson (Anna Karenina), and screen legend Max von Sydow are set to join the original Star Wars stars, Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Anthony Daniels (C3PO), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), and Kenny Baker (R2D2) in the new franchise film.
Hey, who put R2 in a corner?
Nobody puts R2 in a corner……
“What? No Jar Jar?” thought no one.
Well played sir.
Now that Disney is in control of the telling of Star Wars, all I can say is, Welcome to the fantasy years.
I’m still upset that Lucas never did the mini-series he said he wanted to do. A mini-series on the Wookie Wars would have been awesome.
