After so probably a year of of speculation on who will be in the new saga, we finally get confirmation not only on the old cast that is coming back but also on our new heroes and possibly villains.
So joining the old cast of Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford (and of course Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker) we will be getting a couple of unknown faces to most: John Boyega from Attack the Block, we also have Adam Driver from the HBO show Girls, Domhan Gleeson from Harry Potter, Oscar Isaac from Drive, Robin Hood and Sucker Punch, Max Von Sydow also from Robin Hood and Shutter Island, Daisy Ridley who I really don’t know what from and IMDB didn’t help; lastly the one that sticks out the most is Andy Serkis, mainly because he is the biggest name here and it is curious if we are going to see him as a motion capture or live action character.
This list is very nostalgic and very interesting having a mix of both high profile actors like the original cast and the new comers who have a lot of talent and I really cannot wait to see what they are going to do in this new trilogy. Now the main question is we got this news today, and Star Wars holiday big day is Sunday so what will we get then? Stay tuned and we will see what news we get regarding this huge franchise!
