Yesterday was truly an amazing day for all Star Wars fans who have been wanting some kind of something for the movie. We got our main cast, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow. I have to say, besides the original cast, Andy Serkis who i'm excited about, his work on the Lord of the Rings and Rise of the Planet of the Apes were truly outstanding, I want to see what he will be bringing to the new trilogy.
I had a speculation on what roles they might be playing such as John Boyega playing Lando's son, Daisy Ridley playing Jaina Solo or a character like that, Adam Driver as a Sith Apprentice to Max von Sydow's character, Oscar Isaac playing Jacen Solo or a character like him, Andy Serkis and Domhnall Gleeson i'm unsure about, but none the less, i'm very excited.
Now for the backlash, why is there not enough women or colored people? Because the story doesn't call for it, we don't need to have a checklist of everything to make people happy, plus Nupita Nyong'o is being rumored, which would fantastic. In the past 6 movies there has only been 2 black guys, Lando Calrissian and Mace Windu, both badass characters and I still believe to be related some how. Just wait for more casting to come and see what happens, everything will be awesome, J.J. Abrams is an amazing director(just needs to get rid of lense flare) and he will make a great new Star Wars trilogy.
